FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - When the good folks from Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine selected Bigelow Tea to compete in their Black Tea Taste Test, the company's immediate reaction was "Wow!" -- and the icing on the cake was when the magazine announced (in their February issue) that Bigelow Plantation Mint® Tea won first place in the Best (black tea with) Herb Tea category.

"We adore Rachel Ray and were thrilled to be selected to participate in her magazine's Black Tea Taste Test," said Cindi Bigelow, president of Bigelow Tea. "You can imagine how excited we were when we found out that our Plantation Mint® Tea, a top-selling consumer favorite, was chosen as the Best Black Tea with Herb," continued Cindi.
