The Mystery today is where does the time go? This is the time of year when the days are shorter, the hours go faster and there's more and more to do! I hope you still take time to enjoy tea parties, and do take a look at the many changes on the website
I came across this tried and true recipe for Spice Tea. The aromas of the spices are a treat to the senses, and it's so easy to make.
2 27 Oz. jars of Orange Drink (like Tang)
12 oz. Lemonade dry mix (like Countrytime)
1 Cup Instant Tea
2 cups sugar (or sugar subtitute - amount will differ with brand)
1 tspn cloves
2 tspns cinnamon
Mix all ingrdients together. Add 2 tspns of tea mix to 1 cup hot water.
If you are using a mug, use 3 tspns of tea mix.
Be sure to store in an airtight container.
Craft idea: Fill a glass jar, like a canning jar, with the tea mix and cover with lid. Cut a square of fabric and place over the top of the jar. Wrap a piece of ribbon or twine and tie with a bow. Print the instructions on a gift tage and voila! You have a homemade gift!
