Comforting Spice Tea

SPICE TEA...ENJOY!!!

The other day I told you of a Spiced Tea my husband enjoyed during the cool weather, here it is and I trust you will enjoy it also.

SPICED TEA

2 CUPS TANGE OR OTHER ORANGE FLAVORED POWDER BREAKFAST DRINK

2 CUPS LEOMONADE OR OTHER LEMON POWDER DRINK MIX

1 CUP REGULAR OR DECAF. INSTANT TEA-LIKE LIPTON INSTANT TEA (*NOT FLAVORED INSTANT)

2 TABLESPOONS GROUND CINNAMON

1 TEASPOON GROUND CLOVES, ALLSPICE AND NUTMEG

 

FILL WITH SPICED TEA AND TIE A RIBBON AROUND IT. NICE!

IN A LARGE BOWL COMBINE TOGETHER ALL INGREDIENTS AND STIR TOGETHER WELL. SPOON OUT INTO SMALLER WELL SEALING JARS. THIS WILL LAST FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.

 

CUP OF SPICED TEA...ENJOY!!!

IN A MUG POUR HOT WATER TO YOU LIKING AND ADD 1-2 TABLESPOONS OF SPICED TEA…YOU MAY WANT TO START WITH A SMALLER AMOUNT FIRST, I KNOW A FEW PEOPLE THAT LIKE 3 TABLESPOONS PER MUG FULL. I SAY MUG RATHER THAN CUP BECAUSE NOT MANY PEOPLE USE ‘TEA CUPS’ ANY MORE. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE THAT STILL FEEL IT TO BE SPECIAL, AS I DO, TO USE A ‘TEA CUP‘, 2 TEASPOONS TO 1 TABLESPOON WILL BE QUITE ENOUGH…BUT DO TASTE AND EXPERIMENT. YOU CAN GARNISH WITH A SLICE OF ORANGE OR LEMON OR CINNAMON STICK OR A COMBINATION. HAVE FUN!!

 

ADD A PIECE O FABRIC AND TIE A RIBBON OR TWINE...EVER SO NICE!!

FEEL FREE TO READJUST THE SPICES TO YOUR OWN LIKING. 

*I HAVE NOT TRIED TO EXPERIMENT WITH SUGAR FREE ORANGE OR LEMON DRINKS. THEY ARE JUST TOO SMALL IN VOLUME FOR ME TO TRY….SORRY TO YOU THAT NEED TO DRINK SUGAR FREE DRINKS.

 

SAVE A JAR FOR YOUR SELF AND ENJOY.

*BY ACCIDENT I LEFT ONE IN THE VERY DEEP BACK OF THE CABINET AND FOUND IT THE FOLLOWING SUMMER….HEY IT WAS STILL GOOD AND WE ENJOYED IT.

 

Lord bless you and may His hope warm your spirit and his grace comfort your soul and heart.
