Who could have so much fun with tea. This is so good, you won't believe it. Warning, this is not the tea that mom made. I hope that you enjoy this delightful hot treat.

Not your momma's tea is right - but oh so good! I used the 1/2 cup water to brew fresh tea instead of using the instant tea, otherwise made as specified. All the fruit flavors worked well together and of course the rum was a great touch. Thanks for posting this yummy tea recipe! Made for the Comfort Cafe event, January 2009

Very good rum tea! I wasn't watching it well enough and it boiled over even on low heat! That's brown sugar for you though. Watch it well. I used Spiced Rum instead of white rum. I also added a splash of maraschino cherry juice to the glasses. I would make it with regular tea next time instead of the powdered stuff. I will make this again, maybe for Christmas. Made and reviewed for Photo Tag - Thanks! :)
