This is an instant tea mix that can be given as a gift in a large jar. It tastes like mulled cider.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

I keep a jar of this mix in my pantry all year long. It is great on a cold rainy afternoon with a muffin for a snack. The spices are perfect with the orange. Read More
