The Supreme Court today turned its back on a still-brewing tempest over America's multimillion-dollar herbal tea market. The justices, without comment, refused to take up an antitrust controversy stemming from the once-planned acquisition by Thomas J. Lipton Inc. of Kraft's Celestial Seasonings Inc. The case dates back to 1987, when Lipton, a subsidiary of the huge grocery products distributor Unilever, announced that it had agreed to buy Celestial Seasonings from Kraft Inc.

It's safe to say Cindi Bigelow has tea in her blood. Her grandmother, Ruth Campbell Bigelow, founded R.C. Bigelow Inc. in 1945, pioneering flavored teas at a time when tea was a decidedly plain beverage. More than 50 years later, Cindi Bigelow helps run a specialty empire that produces $75 million in annual sales of more than 50 kinds of tea and close to 1 billion tea bags a year. She spends up to 14 hours a day pondering blends ranging from Purely Peppermint to Sinfully Cinnamon.
