Legendary Musician Jose Feliciano Jams With Bigelow Tea

Jose Feliciano Joins Bigelow Tea for Some Constant Comment®

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - June 16, 2010) -  When you combine the qualities of grace, humility and empathy with legendary musical talent, the end result is Jose Feliciano. Jose and his lovely wife, Susan, recently stopped by Bigelow Tea for an afternoon of storytelling, song, and Constant Comment® tea. The visit was captured in an engaging video, Jose Feliciano Joins Bigelow Tea, featuring executives and employees alike -- all captivated by this truly inspiring man.

"What a treat it was for all of us at Bigelow Tea to meet Jose and Susan!" exclaimed Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea. "They are an incredibly kind, genuine, and down-to earth couple. And, we loved listening to Jose's ode to Bigelow Tea!"

Jose is a dedicated advocate for people who are visually impaired and is working hard to get the federal government to put Braille on paper currency, so that people like himself will be able to protect themselves from being taken advantage of. For the blind, audio tapes are not ideal because "Listening is not literacy," as Jose explained to a rapt Bigelow Tea audience. Braille, on the other hand, is empowering.

Although a self-confessed coffee drinker, Jose admitted that he enjoyed a daily cup of Bigelow Tea at noontime with Susan. Her favorite? The tea that's full of spice and everything nice: Constant Comment®.
