Bigelow Tea from Walmart makes my favorite iced tea, Bigelow Blackberry Mint Iced Tea. It is so cool and refreshing on a scorching Texas summer afternoon out by the pool. I could not make it through the hot Texas summers without it.
In some parts of the country people drink iced tea only in summers. But with our warm weather and the delicious taste, we drink iced tea in Texas all year long. So we always keep Bigelow Tea on hand. It is a pantry staple.
When I go shopping at Walmart, I always make sure to stock up on Bigelow Tea, especially my favorite, Bigelow Blackberry Mint Iced Tea.
As much as possible, I like to buy brands made in America and support American jobs. It is nice to know that Bigelow Tea is 100% American made by an American family, for American consumers, and is available at an American retailer, Walmart.
I learned that Bigelow Tea’s Charleston Tea Plantation is America’s largest working tea garden. They even invite guests to the Charleston Tea Plantation for weddings, tours, and music festival. I have always wanted to go to Charleston, and the Bigelow Charleston Tea Plantation sounds like a wonderful place to visit.
Another reason I like Bigelow Tea is the Bigelow’s Tea for Troops program. They have sent 4 million bags of tea to troops overseas. Find more information about Tea for Troops at https://www.bigelowtea.com/Responsibility/Support-Our-Troops.
However, the main reason I like Bigelow Tea is because they make my favorite flavor, Plantation Mint Iced Tea. It was developed by Eunice Bigelow in 1961. Although the packaging may look different today, it is still the same great tasting tea.
To make my favorite Bigelow Blackberry Mint Iced Tea, all you need is water, sugar, fresh blackberries (I prefer fresh but frozen could do in a pinch) and, of course, Bigelow Plantation Mint Tea. Just follow the simple steps below, and you will have a cool, refreshing, Bigelow Blackberry Mint Iced Tea for your hot summer afternoon.
You could also mx any of your favorite summer fruits with the Bigelow Tea.
