Russian Tea Mix

I am not a coffee drinker by any means and so when I start to feel a chill in the air, I turn to tea, cider, and hot cocoa. I have loved this particular recipe for tea since I was a little girl. It's fragrant, fruity, and instant! It makes a really nice gift around the holidays in a decorative jar, too! Best of all it takes about 5 minutes to make and then you have stash of it for winter! 

There are only six ingredients and I have four of those just in my pantry. Other than that, you will need a canister of Tang or similar drink and lemon flavored instant tea. If desired, get tea that is decaf. 

The Tang is a nice way to get some extra Vitamin C, too! Goodness knows anyone who works in a school can use all the Vitamin C they can get! 

Russian Tea Mix
1 1lb, 2oz jar of Tang
3/4c. instant tea with lemon
1 1/2c. sugar
1t. ground cloves
1t. cinnamon
1/2 t. allspice
Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Stir 2-3t. of mix per cup of boiling water to taste. Enjoy!
