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.
-3 QT. Water
– 8 tea bags (regular not family size)
– 2 cinnamon sticks
– 1 tsp. cloves
1. Bring ingredients to a boil and then turn off heat and let steep for 10 minutes
2. Add in
– 1 1/2 cups sugar
– 3 cups orange juice
– 1/2 cup pineapple juice
– 4 teaspoon lemon juice
3. Heat up, serve and enjoy
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!
If you love a good warm drink in the winter be sure to check out my recipe for Hot Chocolate Mix. It makes a lot and you will always have hot chocolate on hand!

I don’t drink tea but this looks like it could be awesome for the winter. Especially on those nights when it’s too cold to go outside!
Yes it really is!

I can imagine this is wonderful. I bet it smells amazing as well! We are always looking for new hot drinks. Thanks for sharing
It does smell amazing! I hope you will try it out and enjoy it!

We received a powdered version of Russian Tea as a gift one year. I think it was made with Tang! It was very tasty and I imagine your version with orange juice (instead of Tang) would be delicious. Perfect for those cold winter days.
Yes my mother in law makes it with Tang. This version is delicious! Thank you for coming by!
As I drink tea all the time, I must try this recipe, especially when it has cinnamon!
Yes it is delicious! Enjoy!
I’ve got a bit of a cold and this sounds perfect right now! Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from the Wine’d Down Wednesday blog hop.
Yes it is perfect for that! Thank you for coming by and checking it out!
Thanks! Bookmarked to give it a whirl. I am thinking a Christmas Eve-opening-presents-drink. 🙂
Yes! We have it on Christmas Eve as well. I love it! Hope you enjoy 🙂
This looks great! Sounds spices and wonderful. I’ve never heard of using juices with my tea before (except for a little twist of lemon). Thanks for a great recipe!
It is a delicious recipe, I’m planning to make it tonight.
This sounds interesting, but good! Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next time.
It is delicious!
OMG, this looks so delish! I’m a tea drinker and I think I’m going to try this next time my mother-in-law comes up! We enjoy our tea so this will be a nice change.
I hope you will both enjoy it!

I hope you love it, we do!
