Instant Spiced Tea

This is a recipe that my grandma had gotten from a friend, that has been passed down and made every Christmas season. It is easy to make, really tasty, and makes for a great little Christmas gift if you package some in cute containers.

This is one of those recipes that when you taste it, it makes you think of a hundred different memories collected in the vault of your mind over the years. With one sip you’re transported to holidays of years past. While it is nothing fancy, it is perfect in its simplicity and it gives you a wonderful taste of the holiday season year-round.

2  3/4 c. sugar

3 c. Tang drink mix

3-3oz packages (or 9 oz of a Kool-Aid type) Lemonade mix

2 Tbsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp ground cloves



Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well to distribute the ingredients. Use 2 Tsp per 8 oz. of hot water, or to taste.
