Sun Tea

During the summer, I switch from hot tea to iced tea. My favorite way to have iced tea is by making sun tea. In this process tea bags can be put in a clear large container filled with water, then is placed in the sun for one or two hours. Sun tea bags can be bought specially at the store or regular tea bags can be experimented with. After that mixture has sat in the sun for a bit, the tea bags can be taken out. In that container you have your sun tea. To complete the iced tea, fill a glass with ice, and pour the sun tea onto the ice. Optionally, you can add some sugar or mint to add some sweetness or a mix of flavor to you sun tea. That for you is sun tea.

Crazy Tea

One time, I was in a mall and I came across a tea place that I don't recall the name of. Outside of it there were many samples of tea and a friendly Asian woman. My friend and I walked up to the place to try a sample. I tried the first one and it was very delicious and not bitter. I ended up trying multiple varying from tea that you put in a glass and let it grow into a plant, to tea that was $40 for a small box. The aisan women would explain every type of tea in great detail. That experience I had with tea was very memorable because I remember it as the time I drank forty dollar tea.
