    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.

    Really enjoyed this lovely refreshing iced tea. Instead of instant tea I just made up a cup of tea and then added the other flavours to taste. I struggled to buy instant tea here in Australia. I also used ground cinnamon.

    It's nice to see this recipe here. I love it! Mom used to make this for us as children and I still do every winter. The hot tea is very soothing on a sore throat.
