Well, the other day I decided to make some sweet tea. We were out of sugar, so I had to go buy some and then it was time for some sweet tea.
The formula is pretty simple. Hot water to a large container with sugar. Let the sugar dissolve, then add the tea bags. Let it steep for a while. Afterwards, slowly add the tea to a pitcher with ice and water. Tea completed.
Well that day I didn’t move fast enough for a family member–who wanted tea, like yesterday. Well, he decided to make it. I didn’t worry or, care until I tasted it, and then I noticed my newly retouched sugar bowl was mighty empty.
So I asked him how much sugar he placed in the tea. He gave a modest amount, but that tea was over-sweetened, and I couldn’t drink it. So I had to go back, and steep two more tea bags, then add it to this pitcher. Therefore the tea is far stronger than I wanted even with more water, but it cut down a lot of the sweetness.
I am so salty now cause I’ve wasted sugar and tea correcting someone who thought they were correcting me. I suppose I should move faster to make the tea, but how the hell is it supposed to steep if I don’t allow it to have time to steep?
I’m not buying any more sugar this week, or tea bags. We’ll just have to drink water if we run out of both.
Happy creative endeavors.
