easy peasy gift idea

i am reposting a post from last year around this time for my Russian Tea recipe.  i have had many people ask for it and it makes a great gift to teachers, girlfriends, coworkers, etc.  it's easy peasy and everyone loves it!

i needed a little something for a few of my girl friends for christmas this year.  as i have mentioned in a previous post, i feel like i need to be a little more crafty.  so, for these gifts i decided i would make something.  my mom has a great recipe for russian tea.  it's kind of like a citrusy cider...super easy and really yummy.  my plan was to put the russian tea in a glass canning jar with fabric on top.  as you can see i actually did it and they turned out pretty cute!  i had some left over amy butler fabric {which i absolutely love} and most of it was already cut into squares, making it perfect for the jars.  i also had some yarn {from an unfinished yarn wrapped wreath i started a few weeks ago} to spruce the jars up a bit.  here's the end result...

i was proud that i had actually finished a "crafty" project!  here is the yummy recipe:

russian tea
2 cups sugar
2 cups tang {target didn't have tang, so i used orange kool-aid...the kind in the canister.  Reasor's does sell Tang!}
1 cup instant lemonade
1/2 cup lipton instant tea
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves

mix ingredients together.  use 4-5 teaspoons in a hot cup of water...enjoy!

we give this recipe


  1. so cute! look how crafty you are!

  2. I have been using this recipe for a number of years if a person can't tolerate neo citran for whatever reason this recipe will help do the trick. I made it for my step-dad who was on heart meds and it helped without any side effects from his meds.
