Russian Tea

I have no idea why my family calls this recipe "Russian Tea", but I love this hot drink. During the wintertime I drink tons of hot tea with some coffee and hot chocolate thrown in for variety. This drink is another one of my varieties that gets in the mix. It's based on instant tea and Tang (I use a generic version). This also makes a great gift for someone when stored in a pretty container much like the hot chocolate cones I posted here. And who doesn't love getting a gift in a jar? I think giving consumable gifts is a great thing to do and food is always welcome. Check out my other gift posts for more ideas.

Russian Tea

2 1/2 c instant orange drink
1 c sugar or splenda
1/2 c instant tea
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice (optional)

Mix all the powders and spices in a large bowl and store in an airtight container. Put two tablespoons in a mug and add 8-10 oz hot water.



  1. My mom used to make this using Tang. She made a HUGE HUGE jar of it and would drink it all winter. Thanks for the recipe! I'm going to make some for her for Christmas.

  2. Rubia,
    I used to use Tang too, but now I'm such a cheapo, that I buy the generic kind. Tastes the same when it's all mixed up. I hope your Mom loves it and it brings back memories.
