You may think that you have to brew an entire pitcher of iced tea, but you can actually create unique flavors by the glass and create your own special recipes.Is there anything better than a nice tall glass of fresh-brewed iced tea during the dog days of summer?You may think that you have to brew an entire pitcher of iced tea, but you can actually create unique flavors by the glass and create your own special recipes.Cindi Bigelow, third generation President and CEO of family-owned Bigelow Tea, has the following suggestions: take two tea bags (don't have to be the same flavor). Fill cup with boiling water. Steep for a few minutes. Poor over ice. Brewing by the glass provides for high levels of antioxidants because the tea hasn't had time to oxidize, unlike most teas that are brewed in large batches and "sit around." Cindi also shares information about the Bigelow Tea Community Challenge (BTCC) which is held each year at the end of September to raise money for a variety of charities.
