Russian Tea

Serves 6
Time 10 min
To makeover this traditional holiday favorite, we replaced the powdered orange drink mix and sweetened powdered tea with orange juice and black tea. Whole spices and some sugar add just the right warmth and sweetness.

  • 6 whole cloves

Bring water, cinnamon stick and cloves to a boil in a medium saucepan; remove from heat and add tea bags.

Steep, covered, for 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags and whole spices.

In a small saucepan, heat orange juice, lemon juice, sugar and nutmeg. Warm until the sugar dissolves.

Add the juice mixture to the tea.

Taste and add more sugar if desired. Reheat (if needed) and serve.
