A post from 2012 but the recipe is still delish & the book is fantastic. . . . .
For as long as I can remember, every year we had Christmas Tea. I’m not sure where my mom got the recipe, but we all loved it! It is warm and citrusy and good!
Making Christmas Tea is a tradition our family continues. Each year we make tons and tons of tea to share. Last night was my 2nd round of tea making.
All packed up and ready to go…
In the 80s Tom Hegg wrote a book called, A Cup of Christmas Tea.
This book tells the story of a young man’s “obligation” turned into a great blessing. When my children were still at home one of our traditions was to slow down for an evening, read the book and enjoy a cup of tea together.
It is a short and sweet book and if you’d like to hear it read, check out the YouTube video below…
2 cups Tang
1 1/2 cups sugar (white)
1/2 cup instant tea powder
1 cup powdered lemonade mix
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well and store in an airtight container.
Use 1 -3 T of mix in a mug. Stir in boiling water. Adjust to taste.
Sit down and relax and enjoy a cup of Christmas tea.
