Recipe by SJTOOLE
"I grew up drinking this tea at my grandmother's house. I now fix it at my house on really cold days, when I am sick (lots of vitamin C!), and at Christmas. It is perfect to let simmer on the stove to make the house smell good and to serve to guests. I have no idea why its called 'Russian' tea; that is just what my grandmother always called it. Use any tea you like. I've used regular black tea, decaf, and cinnamon spice, and it's all great. If using spiced tea, you may want to adjust the amount of cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. This is also great reheated!"

family-sized tea bags
1 1/2 quarts
1 (12 ounce) can
1 (6 ounce) can
frozen orange juice concentrate
1 (6 ounce) can
frozen lemonade concentrate
Made this. Used Trader Joe's White Pomegranate tea, it gave it a lovely red color. Followed the recipe exactly except that I did not have a family sized tea bag so I just used four single-serve tea bags per family bag.
I had this same one when I was a kid and sick. Warm I just remember it as soothing and making me feel better.
