ATHENA: Some people think that tea bags are quicker to make than leaf tea

OLIVIA: Today, Im going to make tea made of tea bag – it will be a lot quicker to make it

Both: Hot water please

Both: we will be back in a few minutes when the tea is ready.

PETER: you both made a wonderful cup of tea- Both of you. I really like what you guys made. My preference is for this one (from the older kid). How did you make this?

ATHENA: i made it using leaf tea

PETER: how did you make?

OLIVIA: I made this with tea bags

PETER: good, umm in terms of strength like really strong. This one is stronger (tea bag tea) but in terms of aroma and taste, this one (leaf tea) is the most pleasant one to drink. This one i prefer to have more often (leaf tea)…Thank you- but i like yours too (the one made by the younger kid)  it is very nicely made. Thank you Olivia
