Default Russian Tea

One of my family's favorite drinks this time of year is what I call 'Russian Tea.' I put it together in a canister, and all they have to do is boil water. You'll need Tang (powdered orange drink mix), instant tea, sweetener, ground cinnamon and ground cloves.

For those who can't drink or don't like alcohol, there's nothing like a warm mug filled with hot cocoa, marshmallows and a peppermint candy cane stirrer. IMO, the best recipe is on the Hershey's Cocoa box (the one without the sugar).
