FAIRFIELD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bigelow Tea is upping the energy-boost options for tea drinkers with American Breakfast teas, a new line of robust black teas naturally formulated with 50% more caffeine than the average cup of tea.
And to honor those who serve and protect, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Bigelow American Breakfast teas goes to support our troops as a way of saying “Thank you” for the sacrifice troops make so we can enjoy the freedoms we all share.
Cindi Bigelow, President and CEO of the family-owned company, said, “I invite you to sip a cup of our beautiful American Breakfast Tea made in America, by an American family, for the American consumer. When you do, you’ll be helping organizations including the USO continue to support U.S. service men and women.”
New Bigelow American Breakfast Teas are specially formulated with natural black tea extract – a concentrated form of brewed black tea – to deliver 60-90mg of caffeine per cup, versus the typical 30-60mg in regular black tea. They are perfect for those who like to start the day with an extra burst of energy they typically get from a cup of coffee, without acidity and nerve-jangling side-effects. Despite the higher caffeine content, American Breakfast tea drinkers will not experience the ‘rush and crash’ effect typical of coffee, thanks to L-Theanine.
“The lift from the caffeine in tea is different from that of coffee. That’s because tea has the added benefit of Theanine, a naturally occurring component in tea,” Cindi Bigelow said. “Studies have shown this unique combination gives tea drinkers a sustained energy boost and, at the same time, a feeling of relaxation and focus similar to what is achieved through meditation.”
True to Bigelow family tradition, Bigelow American Breakfast Teas are hand-crafted with premium, all natural ingredients. Tea and coffee lovers will embrace the smooth, robust flavor.
With American Breakfast Tea, Bigelow is creating a new niche in the tea and coffee category and in the growing world of energy drinks. Bigelow American Breakfast Teas are teas created for the American consumer’s palate and are blended and packaged with pride in the U.S.
The line includes:
- Bigelow American Breakfast Black Tea
- Bigelow American Breakfast Black Tea and Lemon
- Bigelow American Breakfast Black Tea and Honey
