    Chef Kate's Note:

    Remember Lara's little kitchen in the country town in Dr. Zhivago? I believe that this is how that kitchen must have smelled --spiced tea brewing in the warmth while the cold winds rage outside. Recipe from Whole Foods.

      I've never had Russian Tea before, and now that I'm sipping on a cup of it, I think it's a very lovely tea. The only change I made was to use Lemon Zinger herbal tea bags and omitted the lemon juice. The kitchen still smells like spices.

      This brings back childhood memories of a similar recipe my Mom used to make during the winter. (Don't tell, but I think she used Tang instead of OJ). I used decaf tea because it is what I had on hand, and Splenda to cut back on calories, but other than that I followed the recipe to a "tea" :) What a great way to relive a time when life was simpler. Thanks for posting!

      Thanks for posting this! Some 20 or so years ago, I had this least it seems to be the same. Tried it tonight, and it's excellent. During the day, I'll be done with black tea, but at night, sorry, but decaf rules. Looking forward to this during some cold winter days that ain't far away!
