I want to invite all of you to sit back and relax with me while we enjoy a cup of Christmas cheer together.
This is a recipe for Hot Spiced Russian Tea. My grandmother taught me how to make this mix when I was a little girl. The mix makes a nice hostess gift, too. You can store it in a Mason jar or other container decorated with fabric or ribbon. Make sure to include instructions on how to make it.
Note: The recipe calls for Tang, and I have not been able to substitute anything else for it. I buy Tang (made by Kraft) at Winn-Dixie. You can also order it from Amazon.
Hot Spiced Russian Tea
1 cup instant tea mix (I use Nestea)
2 cups Tang
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and store in a covered, airtight container.
Directions for use: Mix two heaping teaspoons mix with one cup (8 ounces) hot water.
I hope you take the time to relax and enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. I will be taking a few days off, too, as I am having surgery tomorrow (December 21st).
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas, my sweet readers!
Until next time...
