Spiced Tea

Spiced Tea

Just a quick belated holiday note.
For several years now, my work has prevented me for being with my extended family during the holidays. Because of this, I was especially delighted to to receive a jam jar of spiced tea from the ladies of my family. Ever since I was a child I have loved this warm sweet holiday beverage that evokes memories of cold hours spent caroling and yuletide feasts spread across a long table.
Thank you, ladies, for this little jar of holiday cheer.
Love you too.

This is my G'ma's recipe:
1 ½ Cups Sugar
2 Cups water
20 Whole Cloves                                                                       
2 Stick Cinnamon

Steep for 20 min. and add:                                     

2 Tablespoons Instant Tea

Combine with     
2 Cans (6oz.) Frozen Pineapple-Orange Juice 
2 Cans (6oz.) Frozen Lemonade

Add enough water to make 1 gallon
Serve very hot.
