Russian Tea is my favorite hot drink during the Winter months – it has the perfect hint of cinnamon and cloves while offering a warm orange and tea flavor.  This Russian Tea Recipe was handed down to me by my mother-in-law, and it has since become my 8-year-old son’s favorite beverage when he comes inside from playing in the snow.

Here is what you need in order to make it, it is pretty simple. Just mix them all together in a jar and then you have it!
