Christmas Friendship Tea-Day 81 of the 100-Day Countdown to Christmas

I had forgotten all about this until I came accross the recipe in my recipe box. I remember my family receivng some for Christmas , years ago,  from a neighbor. I've seen the same receipe referred to as 'Russian Friendship Tea', 'Friendship Tea' and 'Christmas Friendship Tea'. Whatever you may know it as, it's delicious! This is a version I found on and is exactly the same recipe I had in my box.

This tea has a mixture of orange breakfast drink(Tang), Lemonade mix, sweetened iced tea mix, cinnamon, allspice and cloves. It has a wonderful orange scent and the combination of the spices and drink mixes is delicious!
