Hot Spiced Tea (Tang-Based, Aka Russian Tea)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Fuzzys Finds

This powdered hot tea mix flavored with orange, cloves, and cinnamon has been a favorite of mine since childhood... and is now a favorite inexpensive gift for friends and family. Our family can't go through fall or winter without it! (The vitamin C, cinnamon, and cloves are all proven germfighters, too!)

I love lots of flavor so for every 1.5 Cups of Water, I add 2 Rounded Tablespoons of the Russian Tea Mixture. Comforting memories of childhood on a cold day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. A food processor makes this effortless, but I managed with a blender for years, and have even stirred it together by hand when necessary-- although it's not quite as pretty when done that way.
  2. To enjoy: stir 2-3 heaping teaspoons into a mug of hot water and adjust to suit your own taste. Ahhh!
  3. This mix starts to harden in the jar after six months or so, so drink up! Servings and Yield are approximations only.
