Delicious Homemade Hot Spice Tea Recipe

Spice Tea RecipeAs the cool weather moves in, we turn to warm, even hot, drinks.  One of my personal favorites is my own homemade Spice Tea recipe.  The recipe is easy to mix together and a hot cup of spice tea is extremely easy to make once the recipe is ready.

My sister originally gave me a jar of this tea and I immediately requested the recipe.  I have now been making it for over 30 years.  It has become a staple in our winter pantry.  When my sister comes to visit, we still enjoy a cup of hot spice tea together while we visit.

    I leave the sugar out. I am diabetic so I try to keep sugar low. You can get Tang in sugar free also.

    Is the lemonade mix sweetened? Just want to make sure I buy the right item. Thank you.
