Russian Tea

"I love this tangy beverage on a cold winter's morning when I want something tasty and hot, but don't want coffee! It makes a great gift from your kitchen, too! If calories are your concern, use an artificially sweetened orange drink mix, eliminate the sugar and sweeten to taste with sugar substitute."

I used unsweetened Koolaid and the mixture was still very sweet. Very good, but too much sugar for my taste even without the sweetener in the Koolaide. Will make the next batch with a 1:1 rati...

This is the age old recipe I grew up with. It is a staple at our house, especially around cold and flu season as the cloves in the mixture, soothe sore throats. Instead of the 3 oz. package of...

2 cups of sugar when the tea, lemonade and tang are sweetened? YIKES!!! I didn't use the sugar and added a about 1/2 tsp of ground ginger. Very tasty!

Perfect - exactly as my mother used to make me as a child! Sometimes we add red hots to give it that little extra kick.
