Yes but I would add the lemonade mix it is missing. I think it is 3/4 cups It's got sugar added and you don't need the extra sugar in it.
Very tasty tea but I doesn't dissolve well.
My 5 children grew up on this and I'm trying to find the recipe I lost when I moved. This is CLOSE, but I made it with an ice tea mix that was LEMON flavored and included the sugar (or sugar free sweetener). I also added a pkg. of PINEAPPLE flavored Koolaid. I made large batches of the mix at at time. My adult kids wanted my original receipe.
This is even better, believe it or not, if you add Red Hots candy to it! I took a Russian class in high school, and we used to make Russian tea and sip on it during class. Our recipe was the same as this one, except we added Red Hots. Dee-LISH! I still love to make it!
My husband and I used to make this a long time ago, when it first came out. Everyone I know has made this and loves it. Our daughter is now 32 and expecting our first grandchild. My husband and I are supposed to bring the drinks for her and her husbands baby shower. I thought of this and wanted to put it in a large punch bowl. It was going to be at their house so it would be easy to add boiling water. But, she works at a museum at the University and those people wanted to come also. Now the baby shower is at the museum and probably around 60 people. I am still going to serve this because I know everyone will love it. I am not sure if there is a way to add boiling water and keep it warm.
I printed the recipe before Christmas to make for Christmas eve and morning. Turns out some of our friends had enjoyed it years before and were happy to see it again. I ended up making several more batches for myself and as gifts. I'm already saving jars in anticipation of giving it as gifts next holiday season! It smells wonderful and feels like such an indulgent winter treat--even down here in Florida.
We've made this for decades now, & it's always a good choice for a hot beverage.
this is a great change from the usual morning coffee, and excellent for those chilly evenings.
I made this recipe with the sugar free Tang, and used spenda instead of sugar. I used the individual tubs of Tang, Package makes 6 quarts of tang, and I used 2 packages, then because it tasted too tangy, I added 4 times more of all the other ingredients. next time I make this recipe I will try just using one of the little tubs per batch, because the sugar free is so much more concentrated. I used a large coffee cup full of water which was approx. double what the recipe called for and only used a level table spoon of the dry mixture.
Very easy to make and delicious! Even my picky hubby who doesn't like tea really enjoyed this. But my co-worker from St Petersburg Russia said she doesn't know why it is called "Russian Tea." Apparently she never drank any tea like this there!
