Russian Tea


Yesterday was the old Russian New Years celebration, so in honor of that, I figure Russian Tea would be a good post for today. Russian Tea is a spiced orange flavored drink that is good warm or cold. Old recipes call for instant tea, but since it is very hard to find, I have adjusted this recipe for a Tea Mix. This tea would also be a lot more sugary than the original recipes would have called, but over all, it is a great tea mix. Warming and comforting when warmed, and flavorful and refreshing when served chilled. This recipe makes about 11 cups of mix, or about 5-6 large glasses.


What You Will Need

  • 2 Cups Tang, Orange Drink Mix
  • 2 Cups Lemon Tea Mix
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Cloves
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Nutmeg


1. Mix together Tang, tea mix, cloves, and cinnamon, in a mason jar and store at room temperature. To make one cup of tea, add 3 Tbsp mix. To make a large glass, use 6 Tbsp mix to taste. Serve Hot or Cold.
