Kickin' It Up A Notch ~

Greg loves my spice tea mix ~ and drinks it every morning, and some afternoons and evenings!

I've posted the recipe here before for one batch ~ but we have to remake it too often, so now I do the basic x 5.  Heres the recipe

1 jar instant tea ~ I use the unsweetened, decaf
5 cups sweetener of your choice ~ Greg likes Splenda over Stevia
1 Crystal Light container Lemonade ~ all the packets
1 Crystal Light container Orange (the Walmart brand is Sunrise) ~ all the packets
3 tablespoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves

Dump all this into a large bowl and whisk the ingredients.  Put into airtight containers to store.

a regular coffee cup takes a little over 2 teaspoon fulls ~ a travel mug takes 4 teaspoons

Now for the kickin' it up part,to your mug of spice tea ~ add 2 drops lemon essential oil and 2 drops orange essential oil ~ yumminess in a cup! 

Hope you have a warm, cozy holiday weekend with your loved ones!


  1. I love that spiced tea mix. I may have to make some up to get me through the dark months ahead. ;)

  2. I'm just getting on after months off blogs! So i'm catching up. I search a couple weeks back for your muffin recipe and Shelby made some for a catering event. My friend, that is the best muffin recipe!
