New Bigelow American Breakfast Gives Tea a Caffeine Boost

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - Tea drinkers longing for a stronger wake-up brew -- and coffee drinkers wanting to add variety to their repertoire of caffeinated beverages -- now have options! Bigelow Tea introduces American Breakfast teas, an all-new line of robust black teas naturally formulated with 50% more caffeine than the average cup of tea.

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.

Yet despite the significantly higher caffeine content, drinkers will not experience the 'rush and crash' effect typical of coffee thanks to L-Theanine, the naturally occurring compound found almost exclusively in tea.

Consumers will be further pleased to know that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the American Breakfast Tea line goes to support our U.S. service men and women.

In the words of third generation president and CEO, Cindi Bigelow, "I invite you to sip a cup of our beautiful American Breakfast Tea; made in America, by an American family, for the American consumer. And as always, we hope our teas delight you."
