Spiced Tea – Jar Recipe

Ingredients:

1½  Cups of orange breakfast drink (like Tang)
¾  Cup iced tea mix
1½  Cups white sugar
2  tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground ginger

~ Makes about 4 cups ~

Jar Decoration:

1 quart (or 4 cup) glass jar
eyelet lace trim or something similar
¼ picot ribbon or raffia
2 or 3 short cinnamon sticks
white glue or tacky glue
Printable Spiced Tea Mix label
Scissors
Paper punch

Spiced Tea Mix Recipe Instructions:

Stir all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Pour into the quart jar (a funnel is useful for this but not absolutely necessary) and cap with a screw top lid, firmly screwed down.

Cut the lace trim to fit around the jar lid, adding an extra inch. Glue lace in place around the rim of the lid, overlapping the extra inch of lace at the back. Alternatively, you could cover the lid with a circle of lace or pretty fabric tied in place with the ribbon.

Tie ribbon around the lace on the jar lid, then tie the ribbon around the cinnamon sticks so that they appear at the front of the jar. Thread ribbon through the punched hole on the label and tie in place with a bow.

Direction for Tag:

Place three teaspoons of Tea mix in a cup.  Stir in boiling water.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
