This recipe was given to me two Christmas's ago from a very good friend. She said to pass it on. So I am.

My daughter made this as a small Christmas gift for her friends. She made it as a sand art mix by layering the ingredients in a small baby food jar (4 oz. size). She added a circle of Christmas fabric over the lid secured with a rubber band and then tied a piece of wired star garland around the top to cover the rubber band. They are very pretty and make 10 servings. (Scale recipe to 10 servings to get the perfect amount to fit in the jar.) Read More

I used to drink this as a kid and was reminded of it reading a memoir. It smells the same; mmm. I'm letting the flavors blend as suggested before sampling. I did use 1 cup lemon instant tea since I didn't want to buy both lemon and plain instant tea. Read More

A wonderful idea for small Christmas gifts. As the only large containers of instant tea I could find were sweetened, I reduced the sugar considerably (1/4 cup) and it still tastes great. Read More

This is a quick recipe that is very tasty. I too am making up several to give as gifts in decorative mugs for the holidays. Dry mixes are great for gift giving and I appreciate those who submit them! Read More

Loved flavor but way too sugary. I will modify sugar next time with more unsweetened products. Has an orange spice flavor was was nice and fast. Had to add an extra cup of unsweetend tea and Lemon Kool Aide Packet due to high sugar taste. Read More
