When I was growing up we went to my grandma’s house almost every weekend and when I was old enough to start drinking tea the first kind I really remember having was this spice tea that my grandma made. I don’t know if she invented the recipe or not but to this day I can’t drink it without memories of sitting in her kitchen mixing it “to taste” (I always put an extra scoop in mine to make it extra sweet) from her well-used little Tupperware bin with the handwritten label.
This orange and spice tea mix recipe features just 5 ingredients, and they’re all dry and store well in a closed container for mixing on demand — whenever the mood strikes!
Also Fun Fact: NASA used Tang in early manned space flights!
Grandma's Recipe: Orange & Spice Sweet Tea
A quick and easy mix for an instant hot drink of sweet orange, cinnamon, and clove.
Mix all ingredients together
Mix in hot water to taste (3 tsp per 6-8oz)
Store remaining mix in cool, dry place with a tight-fitting lid
I should make a new recipe card, as this one has definitely been through some stuff, but this is my Grandma’s handwriting so it stays.
