Why Russian? Why Tea? We don't have such tea in Russia... But! If instead of water you use RED WINE and instead of frozen orange juice you use slices of fresh orange, it will become a recipe of GLOGG - the warm fragrant wine. All you need to do is warm up the wine with the spice mix, sugar and oranges. Right before it starts boiling, remove from the heat and serve!

I grew up enjoying a similar recipe. Instead of water we used weak tea. I now make with green tea and honey as the sweetner to taste, but much less sweet than I had as a kid. Don't know about authenticity, but this is good with added rum also.

I am Russian and have never even heard about a drink like this. I didn't try making it, so can't comment on the flavor (the recipe actually looks great!), but if you want to impress a Russian guest/ friend etc. by making smth Russian, keep in mind that this is not something they had in Russia. As a previous reviewer said, if you substitute water with wine, you get a great winter-time drink (which IS well-liked in Russia).
