Russian Tea

Yesterday I delivered all the neighbor presents.  This year we made jars of Bay Leaves from our yard for everyone.

Each year I come up with a different idea for Handsome’s coworker presents; but each year

he comes home to let me know that everyone is expecting Russian Tea. ha!

If you haven’t ever had Russian Tea…it really is a treat;

and people love it as a present.

I like packaging it in these little 8 oz. mason jars…purchased from Target.

They are the perfect size to fill for gifts.

So, in case you need some last minute neighbor, teacher, friend, hostess, etc. gifts….

Here’s the super easy recipe:

Russian Tea

2 cups orange Tang

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup Nestea {instant}

1 pkg. Lemon Twist {or Lemonade Koolaid}

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. ground cloves

Directions:  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and store in an airtight container. If you cannot find instant can substitute any other instant tea….and if you cannot find Lemon Twist you can substitute one package of Lemonade Koolaid. You can also substitute Splenda for regular sugar if you need to due to health concerns, etc.

To make:  put 2-3 spoonfuls into 8 0z. of hot water and enjoy!

I made these little vintage paper tags to go on our gifts this year.

Here is the download if you would like to use it.  You can either sign it or upload it to Picnik and add your name to the picture.

Be sure to print it on cardstock.

I used Marcelle Script, in case you want to match the print.

Merry, Merry~
