Bigelow Tea Spreads the Word on How Hot Tea Can Do the Body Well

In Celebration of "Hot Tea Month," Fairfield-Based Company Reminds Customers of the Health Benefits of Tea

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - Creating quality teas since 1945, Bigelow Tea ( is encouraging customers to stay healthy and warm with a cup of hot tea during January, National Hot Tea Month.

Truly steeped in history and tradition, tea was first enjoyed by the Emperor of China nearly 5,000 years ago. Today, tea is the world's second most popular beverage, second only to water, and each year in America, over 50 billion cups are consumed.

Serving as a reminder to do something healthy for ourselves, be it a New Year's Resolution or fresh lifestyle change, January is the ideal time to incorporate a nice hot cup of tea in our daily regime.

Not only is tea soothing and delicious, studies have shown that it can protect against and help lower the risk of heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and cholesterol, stroke and some forms of cancer.

The high antioxidant and nutrient-rich beverage is sold in a variety of flavors at Bigelow Tea, which can be purchased both online and at your local food store. With choices ranging from Green Tea with Pomegranate to the ever-so-popular "Constant Comment®" teas, customers can revel in the idea of staying in glowingly good health while sipping on a hot mug of Bigelow Tea.
