While dining at Davis Kidd's bistro, I got the inspiration to use flavored Bigelow teas for iced tea.
I love cinnamon, so my first venture has been Cinnamon Stick tea, but there are tons of other flavors that I think would be awesome tea flavors.

 (EDIT: Pitcher should be 2-quarts)

Here are some other flavors I noted:
raspberry royale
french vanilla
vanilla hazelnut
vanilla almond
vanilla caramel
cherry vanilla
orange & spice
perfect peach
cranberry apple
pomegranate pizzazz
blueberry harvest (must try that one for my dad; huge blueberry fan, that one Cheesy)

Adding different fruit juices to flavored teas is yummy as well.

growing up we had a fresh mint plant next to the carport and mom would throw a few sprigs in with the tea bags to steap. mmm you can leave them in there or you can fish them out pretty easy with a fork if you leave the leaves whole.

also something i already shared on another thread is i make fruit salad and when it's gone (usually only a day or two  Tongue ) i freeze the left over juice in a cube tray and use those in my tea.

Is the Bigelow tea herbal?  And if so, does it taste like it's flavor?  I have only tried lipton herbals and they just taste like hot watery leaves to me, never the flavor they claim.  Though they do smell good. 

I like the idea of fruit salad juice cubes (I bet you could do it with fruit in, too).  Would be great in the regular black iced tea I like!

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

Today I picked up a box of blueberry flavored tea bags. It wasn't bigelow, but it was called "celestial" something. I used two of those bags with 3 of the black tea bags, and I was blown away by how good it is. Actually, just tasting the blueberry bags when I pulled them out after steeping, I was already in love with the tea.

Some of the Bigelow tea is herbal, but some isn't. It usually says on the box if it's herbal.

Kind of off-topic: In this month's Cosmopolitan, they recommend hanging a few herbal tea bags (like cammomile...i know i botched the spelling) over the faucet when running a hot bath. It's supposed to be uber-relaxing, and I would imagine so... it makes me want to run out and get herbal tea!

My dad swears by cheese cloth for making tea. You can throw just about anything in the cheesecloth--we do mint and tea leaves from our garden. I'm sure you could try lots of other things in there too, to get different flavors.
