The recipe I use for the mix is one that my Mom gave me. 1 Cup Instant Tea (unsweetened) 2 Cups Tang 1 Cup Lemonade Mix (Countrytime, etc) 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl or large sealing bag; mix well. Serve 2 TBS mix in a mug of hot water. Mmmmmm, good!
