I just made a batch of Southern Spiced Tea to get us through the holidays.

I'm enjoying a cup now, and it really is yummy!

Here's the recipe:

Southern Spiced Tea

1 cup regular Lipton Instant Tea mix
1 cup Tang orange mix
1 cup Country Time Lemonade mix
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg

Mix all together in a mixing bowl and put into jars (like Mason jars). Use 2-3 teaspoons to a coffee cup of hot water. Enjoy!

(This also makes a good, inexpensive gift for co-workers, friends, and neighbors! Just tie a ribbon around the top of the jar and it's ready to give!)

YUM-O

Thanks for that recipe.

For a refreshing summer time treat...add 1 bag of Bigelow Plantation Mint to your regular tea bags you use for iced tea. It adds just a touch of mint sweetness and is very refreshing on a hot summer day. Of course I love it anytime of year.

That does sound good! We grow fresh mint in the summertime and use that, but that's a good suggestion for winter hint of mint tea!

We call that Russian Tea in our family. My grandmother (KY hillbilly) would make it in the winter time. Thanks for the recipe though - I had lost it.
