Spicy Tea Mix

This makes a great gift and wonderful to have on hand to offer guests during the holidays and winter months. Some call it Russian Tea.

 1 – 21 1/8 ounce jar of instant breakfast drink mix like Tang

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup sweetened lemonade mix, like Countrytime

1/2 cup unsweetened instant tea

1 – 3 ounce package apricot jello

2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

Mix everything together. Store in an airtight container. Use 4 1/2 teaspoons per 8 ounces of boiling water.

    Thank you @sylvia We used to make this as high school girls. We didn’t add the Apricot jello though. I bet that tastes wonderful. Will have to revive this tea and try it with the apricot flavor. ☺️

      It’s very subtle but we think very delicious!
