Goodness knows my life is so busy, I could stand to take more mommy time-outs than I do. With five teenagers and a toddler running around on most days, I have my hands full, not to mention working from home nearly 24-7. So it’s imperative I take breaks for myself.

Mom’s Time Out

Bigelow Tea makes it easy for me to take a break when I need it. And I don’t always have to choose hot tea, with Bigelow, though I often do. I can make Iced Tea just the same way I create any iced tea with bags. Their quality tea comes in a foil pouch for freshness, which I love. The flavors are richer and more distinct with Bigelow Tea, which is a huge plus. Bigelow makes it fun for me to prop up my feet, sip a hot cup of tea and listen to some music or watch some TV to unwind.

I have an iced tea maker, so that’s how I usually make my iced tea. However, if I know it’s going to be a beautiful day and that I will want a mommy break later on, I will throw a few tea bags into a big pitcher and allow the sun to do it’s work. There is something magical about sun tea!

When it comes time to gift giving, my mom and a few best friends (all moms too) are major tea drinkers, so with the help of Bigelow Tea, I can put together a huge basket of goodies for them anytime.

Bigelow has a wide assortment of flavored teas and they can all be found at your local Walmart store down the tea aisle. I usually pick up a few boxes when I am there, because they are inexpensive and well, I need a constant supply on hand. Plus, there are just so many flavors, you always have something new to try.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy Bigelow tea is iced, with real lemon slices inside. The lemon slices just add to the mood and you feel like you are really taking a moment to yourself (either that or dining at a fancy restaurant, but I prefer the former).
