Spiced Tea Mix


Fancy a cup?

I love spiced tea. It’s one of my favorite holiday drinks. It is warming and spicy goodness in a happy little cup.

Making spiced tea is fairly easy.



Here’s what you need to make your very own spiced tea.

This recipe will fill about 2 pint-sized canning jars, with a bit left over…you know, for taste testing.

How to make it.

  • 1 cup of (unsweetened) instant tea *regular or decaf* <~~~ Bahahaha! I said decaf….
  • 2 cups of Tang or powdered orange flavored drink mix *not a sports drink*
  • 2 cups of sugar, or 1 1/2 cups if you like your tea less sweet
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of dried orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon of dried lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Place into a gift-able glass jar.

Directions for use:

Stir in 2 TBSP (or less to taste) of mix per cup of boiling water. Stir. Sip. Enjoy!



  1. Awesomeness!

  2. I would have never thought to put Tang in the mix!

    • Heh! Tang…if it’s good enough for Astronauts, it’s good enough for spiced tea mix. 😉

  3. Don´t think I´ve ever had spiced tea – sounds lovely. PS. I made the hand scrub the other day (used lemon, salt and almond oil) and it´s wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • You’re most welcome!! I’m glad you made it your own.

  4. All those spices do sound fantastic in tea!

  5. I love spiced tea but never put tang in it..will have to give it a try

  6. wow…I’m catching up on my blog reading…this season is so busy! And so are you with all these great gift ideas!!
