Spiced Tea Mix

This was my all-time favorite "hot tea" growing up. Of course, it's mostly sugar and flavorings, but it still hits the spot on a cold day. My daughter loves it, too, and we have our tea parties with it. I use a slightly different recipe than my mother's mostly because it's hard to find the specific tea hers called for (why do they keep changing products?).

  • 1 c. lemon flavored iced tea mix
  • 1 c. Tang orange flavored drink mix
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. cloves
Mix well and store in a tightly covered container. To make tea, use 3 teaspoons per cup of hot water (or however much you like!)

We used to make this and give it to teacher's as gifts, so I grew up calling it "Teacher Tea." Love the stuff!

We called it "Russian Tea" in my family and my sister and I would make it ALL the time. I wonder if my mom still has the recipe? I'm sure it is really similar to this one.
