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!

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.
