    Default Russian Tea

    I didnt see this elsewhere on here... if it is, sorry.
    A blast from the past.
    I remember making this with Tang as a kid. Probably in scouts.

    My twist... Sugar free. And I would'nt have know if it was not for the fact that I made it.

    Gonna be a stable in my kit.

    Tasty...

    1 jar of Lipton Diet instant tea w/ lemon (3oz jar that makes 10 quarts)
    2 packages of Crystal light classic orange (the ones that make 2 quarts-NOT the individual size ones)
    1 tbsp + 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
    2 tsp of ground cloves

    Mix 1 to 1.5 tsp (depending on how you like it) per cup of hot water.

    ENJOY

    never heard of such a thing.... but i am a tea fanatic and have been meaning to make a leather pouch for loose tea (green, green jasmine, red, maté, etc.) and a tea ball (though i already own about 4) to take with me on hikes. Plus the added benefit of using wild harvested materials without small bits getting in your tea, which isn't all that bad, just a bit annoying.

    My brother, sister and I decided, since Russia isn't known for tang, we renamed it astronaut tea. I like the recipe. I'll have to share with my mom as my dad is diabetic

    what is this nonsense? I first heard this tea recipe)))) this recipe is similar to what that Chinese tea blend. In Russia, a classic drink black tea, sometimes add lemon or honey.

    After reading this thread, I told the wife about it. Here is what we came up with:

    2 cups Tang
    1/2 cup Lipton tea mix with lemon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 tsp cinnamon

    I don't normally drink hot liquids so I tried it cold. Not bad. My wife suggested I try it hot. Wow, those flavors popped!! Thanks for the idea!

    Grew up drinking stuff like that.

    Try instant coffee and tang with spices of choice for something different.

    Also hot chocolate and tang.

    The citrus is the key.

    guess one could mix tea and orange and lemon zest in a tea ball and make a decent version that way.

    Add mullen and /or purple top clover flowers for help keeping sinus etc open and with breathing if one has stuff like cold, flu, broncitus etc.

    (Note since flu season on us. burning purple top clover and breathing the smoke opens up lungs and helps with congestion, mullen also but better as a tea )

    Thanks for bring up the idea, gonna go hit the kitchen and see what I can combine up.

    Yeah, it pretty much has nothing to do w/ Russia at all. I have no idea why it is even called that.
    Regardless, I like it.
    As I googled it, as expected similar recipes, some different names and no explanation.
    And this whole time I just thought Russians liked tasty warm beverages!!! :-p

    Why isn't there any Vodka in this Russian refreshment?
