Ms. Bigelow learned all about the business of making specialty teas including a sense of blending, sipping, tasting and tweaking which ultimately led to the development of some of Bigelow’s favorite and best loved teas. The seasonal favorite, Vanilla Chai and the Novus line are just 2 of the many. Ms. Bigelow was on the board of the U.S. Tea Association and is a member of the Canadian Tea Association. She was instrumental in the purchase of the Bigelow’s Tea Charleston Tea Plantation which she helped to get up and running in 2003. The Plantation grows and produces American Classic Tea and is open to weddings, tours and music festivals. Ms. Bigelow currently oversees the everyday operations of the plantation and says “As those who came before me, tea has been my life…..and it’s been a great one.”
