This hot spiced tea is regularly requested by family members during the winter months. Why it's called "Russian" tea, I have no idea. What I do know is that it tastes wonderful and is full of Vitamin C, helping to ward off colds and other maladies.
I have a habit of saving containers, like the one in the photo, that I use to send this mix home with friends and relations. I also keep the powdered orange drink which I buy in the bulk, on hand in the pantry. Unless you can find instant iced tea that's non-caffeinated, you might not want to make this tea for young children.
I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like this drink.
3 cups Tang or other instant powdered orange
1 cup instant iced tea
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cloves
1. Mix together all the ingredients.
2. Store in a jar or other air-tight container.
3. Add 2 tablespoons (or more) to one cup of hot water.
Good cooking to you,
