I have tested and tried many of the tea recipies such as this one. It can be called russian tea, friendship tea, orange tea. I call it Christmas Tea. With the help of this recipe, I think I have perfected it this year (I give it as gifts every year). I never add the extra sugar-it makes it too sweet for me and those who request it from me. You can always add to the instructions that they may sweeten it to their liking. I did add a little touch of my own that made it devine this year. I tripled the recipe and added a 9.5 oz bag EACH of red hot candies and lemonheads into the mix-after mixing the rest of the ingredients. Then using a canning funnel, I pack the mix into 1/2 pint, pint and quart jars, depending on where they are going to. SIMPLY DEVINE! This will be my Christmas Tea recipe from now on!

Make sure you use instant tea without sugar. If you use instant tea with sugar omit the 1 cup of sugar called for in the recipe. This tea is great to warm you up on those cold winter days.

Tasty and comforting, especially when you're chilled or have a sore throat. Also nice (and inexpensive) to package in a decorative container and give as gifts.
