I don’t know about you, but I love to unwind after a long day with a hot cup of Bigelow Cozy Chamomile Tea. It is a US manufactured brand I have bought for years, and one that I turn to for freshness, and quality ingredients.
I was super excited to work on this post because I “TEA PROUDLY” by choosing Bigelow.
In fact, there is even a community for all you smart and savvy Bigelow Tea drinkers. Tea proudly is a platform for tea drinkers (brought to you by Bigelow) to elevate tea, share your tea passion, and ultimately, make tea part of the conversation. Tea is actually the second most widely consumed drink in the world (second to water). 82% of Americans drink tea, and 42% of them are under 30!
I love my nightly cup of Bigelow Cozy Chamomile Tea because the vibrant flavor helps me to relax and brings a calming sensation over me to help me relax before bed. Sometimes, I even pair my hot cup of tea with a dessert.
Today, I am featuring these Vanilla Bean Scones that are mighty tasty, and surprisingly easy to make.
Many people forget how tasty scones are because they are not as popular of a dessert as compared to cookies, or cake. Sometimes, people even are under the misconception that they are doughy, bland, or dry. With this Vanilla Bean Scones recipe, I hope to change that!
