spiced tea

My mom has been making this tea mix for years. She always keeps the ingredients handy to whip up some tea for herself or as gifts during the holidays. I finished the batch she made me in only a couple of weeks, and it's about time I make some more! It is a very comforting, yummy drink that is perfect for cold nights curled up on the sofa with a good book. Enjoy! xo.

9 oz. Tang, orange flavored
3 pkgs powdered lemonade, such as Kool-Aid
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup instant tea, such as Lipton
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
Red hots, as desired [I like LOTS of these!]

1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
2. Transfer mix to tightly sealed container[s].
3. To make tea, use 2 tsp. mix for 1 cup hot water. Makes 50 servings.

Gift Idea
Consider packaging some of this spiced tea in a sweet little glass jar [with a snug lid to keep out moisture]. Walmart has adorable lidded jars that would be perfect for holding tea.
Adorn the jar with ribbon, fabric... you name it! Make sure to add a tag with instructions for making the tea.
