Winter Favorite


One of my most favorite things during this time of year is this Spice Tea mix that my mother has made for as long as I can remember.  On cold winter nights this really hits the spot!


I thought I’d share this little recipe of goodness with you:


1 3/4 cups instant tea mix

2 cups Tang breakfast drink mix

1 1/2 cups sugar

Powdered Lemonade mix – amount needed to make 2 quarts

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp ground cinnamon


Mix all ingredients together and store in airtight container.

How much mix you use in your hot water is up to you.  I generally use about 1 Tablespoon per mug.  You can add more or less to your liking.

And as an added bonus, try adding some crushed peppermint to it. 


This also makes a great last minute gift.
