Back in 1945, when the Bigelow Tea company first started, Ruth Bigelow and the family could only afford a single-color label for her tea. To help spruce up the package, David Jr. and David Sr. would sit together each night, hand-painting the two ladies on the original label. Each morning, they would put the tea into the family station wagon and sell it store by store. One night, David Sr. turned to David Jr. and said "Son, don't tell your mother, but I don't think this company is ever going anywhere." Almost 70 years later, David Jr. still smiles at the memory, and is grateful that his father was mistaken. Today, Bigelow Tea is the specialty tea leader in the U.S. Those hand painted labels must have been pretty darn effective! --The Bigelow Family. We're Proud of Our Recipe: Adding creamy vanilla flavor to our hand-picked black tea with the right balance of exotic spices was a natural marriage. A touch of milk and a little sweetener bring out the rich vanilla creating a superb flavor sensation. Sweet and spicy all at the same time. Caff-O-Meter: Content per Serving: Black Tea: 30-60mg.
