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

HERE IS THE DEAL WITH THIS RECIPE......ALL THE SPICES AND FLAVORS NEED TIME TO BLEND TOGETHER BEFORE TASTE TESTING AND DECIDING THAT IT NEEDS MORE THIS AND THAT...... ALWAYS ADD/DECREASE TO YOUR LIKING BUT DO GIVE IT TIME LIKE MOST THINGS....ALWAYS BETTER THE NEXT DAY.

Not quite the russian tea from my childhood--but very close. I found it to be a bit too lemony, next time I will cut that down a bit. And it seems like a lot of sugar but it doesn't end up a terribly sweet beverage. Very comforting on a cold winter night!

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.
