mom’s russian tea

Our mom used to make “Russian Tea” every December and I came across the recipe the other day — all crinkled, smeared and stained from years of use. It’s kind of old-fashioned and probably too sweet (though we did reduce the sugar from 2 cups to 1), but we still make it every Christmas. Finding Tang could prove a bit challenging; we’ve been lucky at Kroger and Publix.

Mom’s Russian Tea

1/2 cup instant tea (unsweet)

1 cup sugar

2 cups Tang

2 small Kool-Aid lemonade packs (unsweet)

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground cloves

Stir ingredients together well and store in an airtight container. Mix tea to your taste in a cup of  hot water and enjoy on blustery days.
