Russian Tea

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.


Servings: 32    Serving size: 2 tablespoons    Preparation time: 15 minutes

Ingredients 3 cups Tang or other instant powdered orange    drink 1 cup instant iced tea 1 tablespoon cinnamon 2 teaspoons ground cloves

Directions 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.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Let me know if you’ve tried it and how it turned out.

Good cooking to you, ​Linda ​Note: Would you like a printout of this and other recipes? These directions may help: Use your mouse to select only the text you want to copy rather than the entire page.
