HERE IS THE DEAL WITH THIS RECIPE......ALL THE SPICES AND FLAVORS NEED TIME TO BLEND TOGETHER BEFORE TASTE TESTING AND DECIDING THAT IT NEEDS MORE THIS AND THAT...... ALWAYS ADD/DECREASE TO YOUR LIKING BUT DO GIVE IT TIME LIKE MOST THINGS....ALWAYS BETTER THE NEXT DAY.

Needs more tea and sugar - this is very very very tangy - we added another 1/2 C of tea and over a cup of sugar and it was much better.

Not quite the russian tea from my childhood--but very close. I found it to be a bit too lemony, next time I will cut that down a bit. And it seems like a lot of sugar but it doesn't end up a terribly sweet beverage. Very comforting on a cold winter night!

I like to add crushed Red Hots cinnamon candies. Measure 1/8 cup candies, place in a sandwich bag between a dish towel and crush with a hammer. Add to mix. Allow mix to set a few days for flavors to compliment each other.

Does anyone have any suggestions...Tang has been reformulated and now is "ultra concentrated". I tried substituting orange cool-aid mix for the Tang and it was horrible, way too strong.

It doesn't get any easier or any better than this! Everyone loves to receive this as a gift. It smells sooooo good in a steamy mug...really warms the body and the heart. Thanks Laura!

Great gift idea. I put in small gift jars and placed Christmas cloth over the lid and tied with pretty ribbon. Very cute!

I'm making this to give to all my sons' teachers for Christmas. I love the way this recipe is presented in quantity, with instructions for the gift tag. My mom, a retired teacher, received this as a gift from one of her former students and really enjoyed it.
