Bigelow Tea Cooks Up a Storm With Recipes Inspired by a "Secret" Ingredient -- Tea

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - Delicious, easy to make recipes are alive and well on the Bigelow Tea website. Our recipe vault is overflowing with mouthwatering concoctions, all of which contain a special ingredient -- Bigelow tea! From roasted chicken with constant comment® glaze to miniature vegetable quiches to orange spice carrot cake cupcakes and individual fudgy brownies, adding tea to your recipes increases flavor without calories and offers a new twist to your holiday cooking.

Ask our fifteen finalists including the grand prize winner of the Bigelow Tea recipe contest and they will say the same thing: cooking with tea is both fun and exciting. The winner, Diane Halferty, used Bigelow's mint flavor tea to make this White Chocolate Mint Mousse Tea Cups recipe into an absolutely delightful treat that can be used for the holidays and beyond. "We received so many wonderfully creative recipe submissions for amazing Bigelow tea-inspired treats -- from a Crème Brülée featuring our signature tea, 'Constant Comment'® to Lemon Lift® Infused Chicken, Pumpkin Chai Panna Cotta and more," said Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea.

To join Cindi herself in her own kitchen, check out our latest video where she showcases three recipes made from "Constant Comment"® (tea created by her Grandmother, Bigelow Tea founder Ruth Campbell Bigelow).
