Spiced Tea Mix is perfect for gift giving during the holidays or for just sipping a cup of this orange-cinnamon-clove spiced tea by the Christmas tree!
One of the Christmas memories I hold dear is the Spiced Tea Mix my Mom makes to give to friends and family! It’s so easy to make!
Sitting in front of our Christmas tree, enjoying the lights and ornaments, while sipping a mug of this hot, fragrant orange-cinnamon-clove spiced tea is something I always enjoy!
This recipe makes approximately 36 ounces of spiced tea mix. I filled 3 pint sized jars… 1 jar to keep, and 2 jars to give away as gifts.
I’ve heard it called “Russian Tea” before, but have NO CLUE why… Maybe people are “rushin” to drink it? (Get it? My complete fail at a joke). My apologies… Whatever you call this tea… make it. It’s delicious!

Here are the ingredients before mixing…(Tang, Lemonade, Instant Tea, Sugar, Cinnamon and Cloves).
Here are the ingredients for this spiced tea mix after mixing…
Here is what the spiced tea mix looks like, once poured into jars… it looks pretty cool. The different layers of spices give each jar a unique look!
I enjoy giving his simple, “homemade with love”, Spiced Tea Mix as a gift to friends.
Place a simple bow on top, attach a cute gift card, and you will have a special homemade food gift for those you love!
But here’s how I most enjoy it… 2 Tablespoons Spiced Tea Mix, stirred into a mug of boiling water…perfect!
The mug in this photo (below) belonged to my mother-in-law and is special to me. She passed away and went to her heavenly home a few years ago. She is missed during the holidays, but she is thought of often.
She is especially thought of and missed when I enjoy a hot delicious drink (including this one), out of her old trusty coffee mug.
I really wish you could smell AND taste this delicious drink. It’s so warm with spices, and full of citrus flavor! Hope you will consider making up a batch of spiced tea mix for your family and other loved ones this holiday season!
