:: spice tea mix ::

I adore this tea - the orange and cinnamon flavor is so delicious! Not only is it great on an ordinary day, but it's amazingly soothing for a sore throat, with a high vitamin c content that will help kick the sicky blues out the door. I drink it a lot when I'm feeling sick and find it is an almost miraculous pick-me-up. I don't use that word miraculous often, dear reader... to try it is to believe it!

Spice Tea Mix

one container of Tang mix (1 lb. 4 oz.)
one envelope of lemonade mix (the kind without the sugar included)
2/3 c. instant tea granules (unsweetened)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon

Use a 1 qt. jar with a lid, or larger - I use an old canning jar, you could recycle a spaghetti sauce jar or the like

Pour all the ingredients into the jar. Screw the lid on, shake it a whole lot to mix thoroughly.

Put 2 spoons of the mix into a mug, add boiling water, and stir to dissolve the mix.

Yes! I love this stuff too!

My kids also like it when I substitute fruit punch for the lemonade pack. It's like a fruity spicy cider.

And you're right it's PERFECT for a cold. Or anytime in the winter, really.
