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! Read More

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. Read More

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). Read More

The tea was left out in the ingredients and the instructions! I scaled way down and added the tea where I thought it should be added. Right or wrong with the added tea this is like what I remember mom making when I was a kid. We used Tang growing up but the real orange juice made all the difference in the world! Read More
