My mom used to make this when I was a kid and I appreciate you posting this so I can enjoy it as an adult. Good recipe- I subbed splenda for the sugar and used sugar free or low cal mixes and it still tastes great. Thanks again!
I can't believe I've not rated this, as I make it often. I use ground cinnamon and I prefer about half the amount of sugar or less, as both instant tea AND tang are pre-sweetened. This is a staple in my home and a favorite jarred holiday gift.
This drink did not have as stong a tea flavor as I was looking for, but if you want the orange flavor to be predominant, it's quite good.
