he whistle of the kettle was unmistakable: an invitation to sip some tea and spend some time with your thoughts or, even better, a good friend. Only this siren wasn’t shouting from a stovetop –– it was coming from a new mobile app created by Fulbright Scholars at the School of Business.
The app, Time 4 Tea, was modeled recently for Bigelow Tea, the Connecticut-based specialty tea company. The timer helps consumers brew a perfect cup of tea by matching the ideal seeping time for each blend.
As part of the app’s beta testing, Cindi Bigelow, the company’s president and chief executive officer, visited the Mount Carmel Campus for the first time to share her story and to steep a cup of Lemon Ginger tea.
