A jar of Russian tea is always handy to have on hand over the Holidays, when guests drop by you can offer them a hot beverage. Be prepared to share the recipe, or better still, send a jar home with them.
1 (8oz.) jar Tang (instant orange drink)
1 1/2 cups instant tea with lemon
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Store in an airtight container.
Use 1 or more tablespoons of mix to 1 cup boiling water.
Yield: 4 cups
“The "art of tea" is a spiritual force for us to share”~Alexandra Stoddard
COOKS NOTE: I use low-sugar Tang, unsweetened tea, and Splenda in place of the sugar. It tastes much the same, without all the sugar.

  1. I love Russian Tea, especially to drink over the holidays. Although Instant Russian tea is perfect to have whenever you wish to drink it, I prefer to make it the traditional way, with loose leaf black tea, lemon and orange juice and spices.
    Have you ever tried it this way? It's also very good!
