Three Unique Ways to Enjoy Iced Tea

September 18, 2014 10:02 am

From Southern-style sweet teas to berry-infused varieties, there is a seemingly endless number of ways to enjoy iced tea. This cool, refreshing beverage is as versatile as it is delicious, and it’s usually very simple to make. Here are three creative ways to enjoy iced tea.

Smooth Sweet Tea [AllRecipes]
Timeless and traditional, this recipe for Smooth Sweet Tea shows you just how to properly prepare the Southern favorite. Steeping black tea bags in boiling water creates a rich, aromatic base, while white sugar gives it that wonderfully sweet flavor.

Pomegranate and Lime Iced Tea [Real Simple]
Hot summer days call for a drink that will really quench your thirst, and this tart, fruity recipe does just that. Pomegranate juice gives the tea a real fruit flavor, while thinly sliced limes add a zesty taste that really complements the sweetness.

Green Jasmine-Mint Iced Tea with Lemon [Eating Well]
A wide assortment of flavors go into this simple tea recipe, but they all work together seamlessly. The jasmine green tea is light and mild, while the mint adds a cool flavor that will help you to unwind after a long day. Lemon juice and honey also provide a bit of added sweetness and tart flavor that’s more typical of green tea.

Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza: Build Your Own Pizza in Fremont

September 17, 2014 9:05 am

Locals love Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza in Fremont for its speed, convenience, variety, and reasonable prices. Blaze prides itself on creating thin-crust pizzas that are made to order in a matter of minutes. Choose regular, vegan or gluten-free crust; however, if you’re sensitive to gluten, you should be aware that Blaze uses wheat flour and that it may get into the gluten-free dough.

Blaze is popular and lines can get long, but you’ll find a better selection of pizza toppings here than at similar restaurants in the area. Add as many toppings as you want for one flat price. If it’s your first time at Blaze, take the advice of BYOP veterans and don’t go too crazy with the toppings; it’s easy to overwhelm yourself with flavor. You’ll also find several signature pizzas if you’re not feeling particularly creative.

Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
