The Connecticut Tea Party
In 1995, Bigelow Tea moved from New York to Connecticut. Soon afterwards, back-to-back hurricanes hit! Connecticut rivers, including the Norwalk River, where the new factory resided, rose up over 35 feet, moving over 50 miles an hour. Ruth and David Bigelow worried desperately about their fledging 10 years old business. When they finally reached the factory, they saw their own version of the "Connecticut Tea Party" The building was flooded and all of their tea had washed down the river. Although devastated, Ruth (in her 60's) and David (in his late 70's) were determined not to give up their dream. Turning to an employee, Ruth asked " How long till we can get back in business? It took tremendous effort to get everything in order again. Who extended them whatever they needed, the Bigelows were back in business in just a few months. Their tenacity is the foundation of what our company is built on. Our family learned two lessons that we still adhere to: always pay your bills on time, and when you get knocked down, just get right back up!
