The Darien Community Association (DCA) Women’s Luncheons start their season featuring “The History and Health Benefits of Tea” presented by Bigelow Tea, a family-owned business for 75 years and three generations, for their luncheon on Tuesday, October 1 at 12:15pm at the DCA.
Tea is the second most popularly consumed beverage worldwide behind water. It has a long and storied history tied to each culture, society and time period that it touched.
Tea continues to be enjoyed today and is not only tasty but also a positive addition to a balanced diet. Join Bigelow Tea, a local family company operating for the past 75 years, for a discussion of the history of this amazing plant as we travel through the most important milestones in tea history.
We will also be touching on what makes tea so unique, how it is produced, where it grows and just what health studies are being done around it. There will be take-home samples for all.
