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 lemondade, we just use the smaller .23 ounce sugarless lemonde mix.
A couple of days ago I started craving this tea--my mom made it when I was a kid. It turned out great--I used decaf unsweetened tea mix tang and countrytime lemonade which is sweetened so I reduced the sugar to 1 cup. It turned out great!
This hot beverage tastes like Christmas to me. I have not had it for years. My husband and I "stole" away for lunch at a sweet little local tea house this week. As I was looking at the tea menu, I saw "Russian Tea". I wondered if it was this recipe and it was! My husband and I sipped tea and enjoyed our lunch date. It was the very first of December and the Christmas music was playing . Oh, the taste of the tea and the music really put me in the Christmas spirit- praise God for His indescribable gift of Jesus! Enjoy!
Growing up we always had this stuff in the house. I hadn't had it in years and decided to make a little gifts for my co-workers. It was delicious but a little too sweet for me. I made it in 2 batches the second batch I added half the sugar it called for and it was great. (I do not like sweet tea.) My 11 year old son is hooked on this stuff now. FYI: it is the little packets of unsweetened lemonade that should be used in the recipe about.25 oz. each.
I've wanted to make this recipe for years (since I saw a similar recipe on the back of the Tang container) and finally did! I used the 1 tiny little Kool-Aid unsweetened pack like the others and subbed allspice for cloves because that's what I have. I was surprised by how much I enjoy this drink it tastes like those apple cider mix packets you can buy only cheaper and better. I now have a big empty peanut butter jar full of this tea mix and will look forward to drinking it every day. Thanks!
I changed the recipe to my taste. 1 1/2 c of tea 2 c Tang 2 pkg Koolaid Lemonade (non-sweeten) 1 c sugar 2 t cinnamon 1/2 tsp allspice and it made my taste buds happy. It taste more like the Russian Tea that I drank at the Texas RenFest.
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 ratio of Tang to instant tea, a package of unsweetened lemonade Koolaid, and the spices and will add sugar to taste. This is still a good drink, just a little too sweetened for my taste. Update-changing the ratio as mentioned did not improve the flavor. This is still pretty sweet-will continue to look for a similar drink that has the flavors with less sweetness.
