Tea Time!

Before I started drinking cream with caffeine coffee, I used to drink a lot of tea in the winter time. One of my favorite recipes is the one below. My grandmother always called it "Russian Tea" although one of the main ingredients is Tang, which in my book is about as American as it gets. Anyway, I made a batch this week and thought I would share the recipe. It's yummy!


2 cups Tang drink mix
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup instant tea
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon

Just to make a good picture, I put everything together in a jar - brings back memories of the ever-popular  "sand art" projects from when I was younger!

Now mix...

That's it...just add a couple spoonfuls to a cup of hot water & enjoy!

This would make a great, inexpensive Christmas gift - just add a cute ribbon and you're all set!
