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.
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.
