Russian Tea

I was a bit of a tomboy growing up but every now and then I liked to be girly and invite my friends over for a tea party.  My favorite tea that my mom made was Russian Tea.  My friends loved it too!
Here's what you'll need to make Russian Tea for your little girl's tea party (or just for yourself!):
  • 3 cups powdered orange drink (such as Tang)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup instant tea
  • 2 packages lemon jello
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • large mixing bowl
  • air tight storage container

The above recipe makes quite a bit of tea so if you don't think you'll drink it very fast, I would cut the recipe in half.

  • Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Make sure to mix well.  
  • Store the powdered mix in an air tight container.  
  • Serve 3 tsp mix per 1 cup of hot water (or mixed to taste).
That's it!  Super easy and super yummy!


  1. My mom always made this when we were kids. She called it sugar and spice tea. I'm feeling the need to go whip some up! Thanks for the memory.


  2. I didn't know that's what that is called! I currently have a batch in my pantry (we just call it spice drink lol). The kids love it though, and there's nothing better on these cold Minnesota days : )

  3. I remember a different version of this......instead of using the lemon jello, you could always substitute a couple of packs of lemonade kool aid.
