Spiced Tea

My mom made this yummy spiced tea for my family when we had sore throats and colds. So soothing, and packed full of vitamin C.

I like to give it as gifts to friends, teachers, bus drivers, etc... 

Mom's Spiced Tea
Mix together the following:
(and give it a good shake!)

1 cup instant tea (I use decaf)
1 package mixed fruit or strawberry/banana jello
2 cups Tang orange drink
1 tablespoon lemonade powder
1 cup sugar (I usually leave the sugar out)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

~Add two spoonfuls to a mug of hot water.  Ahhh...

I love Tang!

Ready to give to a friend...
or to keep!

"There is a great deal of poetry
and fine sentiment in a chest of tea." 
(Ralph Waldo Emerson, Letters and Social Aims)

  1. Melanie, your post couldn't have come at a better time. My throat's a little sore tonight. I'm heading to the kitchen to make a cup of your yummy hot tea recipe now. Blessings to you, and hope you get well soon. :) Shanna
