A subtle black tea with a hint of fruity flavor. A great way to wake up.

  • To Honeybear: I have the following recipe for "instant spiced tea" which my mother used to make often.

    2 cups Tang orange drink mix
    1/2 cup instant tea
    1 1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    Mix all and store in airtight container. To serve, use mixture at ratio of 2 teaspoons to 1 cup boiling water; 3 teaspoons for larger mugs, etc., or to suit your taste.
