Make your guests a jar of Russian Friendship Tea for a wedding favor. Served at the Biltmore, this tea is sweet, with a touch of citrus and spice and is perfect to give at winter or even fall weddings.

Russian Friendship Tea Mix Recipe

(Russina Friendship Tea Recipe from Bake It Pretty Blog:)

2-1/2 cups Instant Orange Drink Mix (like Tang)

1-1/2 cups Instant Lemonade Mix (like Country Time)

1-1/2 cups Instant Unsweetened Tea

1/2 cup Sugar

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

(all spices are the dried, ground kind- not whole!)

In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Use a funnel to add one cup of hte mix to a jar or bag. If you want some pretty labels go to: Where there is a PDF file to print with directions on how to make the tea on the back. While you are there take a look at the rest of the great blog and site!
