Grandma's Spice Tea
As the weather begins to cool, I find my thoughts returning to comfort foods and warm clothing. Fall is in the air and that usually calls for hot tea, hot chocolate or coffee. I thought of this special tea recipe that I received from my Grandma more than 20 years ago. I can't remember a time when Grandma Rice didn't have her tea on hand for a cold day. I decided to make some today so I thought I would share it with you. I know that I'm not the only one who had been thinking about it because it came up in a Facebook conversation with my sisters. I wish they were here to share a cup with me!
I have heard this called Russian Tea, but this is how Grandma Rice makes it.
2 cups Tang
1 cup lemonade mix
1 cup of instant tea - unsweetened
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons of ground cloves
Mix all ingredients together and place in a storage container.
To serve: Place 2 teaspoons of mixture into a tea cup or mug. Add 8 ounces of hot water, stir and serve. It is so delicious.
Be sure to stop back soon for some projects. I have one that just needs edited and posted.
Thanks for stopping by today. Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
