Russian Tea (non-tea)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Tower_Keeper

Although this doesn't have tea in it, it is a very fragrant holiday drink which my whole family loves. I got this from posted by Cynthia. I would suggest using a small stockpot to cook it in.

This drink recipe looked interesting to me so I made it last night and like it a lot. It's different than any drink I've ever had and has holiday spice flavors I enjoy. This recipe makes about 3-4 quarts so I plan to cut the recipe in half next time I make it.
