Spiced Tea Mix
photo by NorthwestGal
- Ready In:
1 1/4 quarts
- 2 cups powdered orange breakfast drink mix (I use Tang)
- 1 cup instant tea powder
- 3 ounces powdered unsweetened lemonade mix (about 1/2 cup)
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground cloves
- cinnamon stick (optional, for stirring)
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until all of the ingredients are well blended.
- Store the mix in an air-tight container.
- When ready to serve, place 3 teaspoons of the mix in a coffee mug and add 1 cup of hot water. Stir with a whole cinnamon stick, and serve while hot.
- NOTE: Measurements are approximate; adjust ingredient amounts to suit your taste preferences.
- GIFT-GIVING TIP - This is a wonderful treat that is suitable for gift-giving. Place about 1 1/2 cups of the mix in a decorative glass jar, a strong cellophane bag, or a pretty holiday tin. Tie a festive holiday ribbon around the neck of the jar (or top of the bag), or secure a pretty bow to the top of the tin. For special touch, attach 3 or 4 cinnamon sticks to the ribbon. Be sure to add a label to the package with instructions to place 3 teaspoons of the spiced tea mix to a coffee mug and add 1 cup hot water.

Made this for an early Yuletide gathering with friends & also included a small amount as a 'guest gift' along with the recipe! Thanks, much, for the great gift idea as well as a great tasting beverage! It makes for a very satisfying just-before-bedtime sipper, too! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This site used to be awesome. It was at the top of its game when it was called Recipezaar, but that was many years ago. The site was purchased by Scripps and belly-flopped into mediocrity. A few of the faithful members remained, hoping to wait out the storm of corporate nonsense. But alas, it never got better and just continued on its terminal path to nothingness. So most of the loyal members have vanished and made homes at better recipe sites.
