I made the sugar free version of this with crystal light orange breakfast drink mix and Publix brand instant sweet tea with lemon sweeted with nutrasweet. And let me tell you it was sooooooooo good. I looked for tons of recipes for this online so I could make the best one. The initial bad rating this recipe got kindof threw me off at first (but I couldn't find another sugar free version) so I tried it. And I also tried a decaffeinated version that wasn't sugar free from another recipe I had where I used Tang and it paled in comparison. This recipe is the best! Now I'm off to try the caffeine sugar version. I think it will come out marvelously.
Me and my friend spent all the money to go buy these ingredients for our x mas baskets and let me tell you!! It was a waste of money this tea mix is HORRIBLE and now were left with nothing for our baskets.
My mom always made this around the holidays growing up and we loved it (she called it "Tang Tea"). You HAVE to use the lemon-flavored sweetened iced tea mix! Or if you use UNsweetened iced tea mix you have to add sugar as well. Otherwise it's very bitter. I imagine this is the mistake that the people who gave the recipe a bad rating made.
Excellent Recipe!!! What a shame someone would give this recipe a bad review when the problem was probably in their own choice of ingredients or their lack of knowledge. I've made this tea mix for years and given it as gifts too. My family would be distraught without it.
Patsy this is a lovely tea mix. I've had hot spiced tea in several restaurants and this certainly competes with them all. It's easy to add new spices to the mix and create new "strains" of the tea such as adding vanilla or crushed raspberry candies. As for the low rating it might be a good idea to practice ahead of time if giving as a gift to be sure of it's success. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is a really good tea mix. It's too bad someone gave it a bad review because it really has a nice flavor. Especially if you like sweet and tangy. I agree with the previous reviewer about the orange flavor being dominant. I even added a box of orange or peach gelatin (I don't remember which). Will certainly be making this around the holidays. Thanks for sharing.
