YUM! Bigelow Tea has many flavors in their American Breakfast line.

My favorite is the black tea and honey, lemon and honey goes so well together!

American Breakfast tea gets it’s help from Theanine, a naturally occurring compound unique to tea. Theanine combined with caffeine gives a sustained energy boost with a feeling of relaxation and focus that only tea provides.

What I love most about the Bigelow Tea company is they are 100% All American. Made by an American family; an American Company for the American consumer.

If you live near Charleston or go there visiting, Bigelow Tea’s Charleston Plantation is open and guests are invited there for weddings, tours and a variety of music festivals.

One last amazing talking point about Bigelow Tea is their Troops Program. Almost 4 million bags of tea has been sent to our troops overseas and you can find more about that here!

    These mini-meringue pies are adorable. There are too many treats I enjoy with tea to list. Tea is a staple here and I can’t imagine not having a cup in the evening. Visiting from SITS. Have a great weekend!

    I just tried this recipe but the meringue came out leathery and tough, so strange. The filling was delicious though!
