Mix ingredients and store in a jar with tight lid. To serve: Add 2 teaspoons to each cup of boiling water.

This tea is called Friendship Tea because it makes such a large quantity, you'll want to share it with friends. It is a sweet spiced Russian tea. At least that's what my Pastor's wife, when I was a teenager, told me.


  1. Haven't made this for years. Used to keep it all the time. This recipe was popular in the 70s and 80s.
