This episode, titled Tea for Two, was filmed last December in the Connecticut home of Cindi Bigelow, president of Bigelow Tea, America’s second-largest tea producer. Richardson and Bigelow were interviewed by host Burt Wolf as they discussed tea’s influence on art, literature and music. The trio enjoyed a lively conversation about the tea habits of Jane Austin, the longevity of such songs as I’m a Little Teapot and the tea drinking habits of French artist Claude Monet.
