On these cold winter days I just want to curl up with a hot drink and a good book. Russian Tea is one of my favorite winter drinks. My mom has made it as long as I can remember and now my sister and I are making it all of the time. It’s simple and warms you right up.

I love this drink! I use decaffeinated tea bags because I gave up caffeine a couple years ago, yes call me crazy. But it works with either. Do you have a favorite hot drink during the winter? I’d love to hear what it is!
