Deliciously Decadent: Bigelow(R) Tea Adds All-Natural Mouthwatering Flavors to Its Tempting Chai Tea Line-Up

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - How do you improve on perfection? Just ask the flavor experts at family-owned Bigelow® Tea. They've taken their delectable Chai Tea line and added two new, irresistible flavors:

  • Bigelow Tea Chocolate Chai -- a flavorful blend of rich, premium black tea, exotic Chai spices and decadent, natural chocolate and dark chocolate flavors

  • Bigelow Tea Caramel Chai -- a sumptuous blend of rich, premium black tea, exotic Chai spices and creamy, natural caramel flavor

The Bigelow Chai Tea line, which already includes Bigelow Vanilla Chai, Spiced Chai and Decaffeinated Spiced Chai, have seen steady growth since Bigelow® first introduced its Chai line in 2005, and account for 25% of the nearly $5mm Chai tea bag market.

As third generation company CEO Cindi Bigelow is quick to point out, there's an added benefit: "Our customers can savor all the rich satisfaction of this luscious, all natural treat anytime, in a refreshing, calorie free cup of tea for about 15¢ a cup. For pure pleasure, add a little milk and sweetener. And be sure to try it iced!"
