We make this every year, put it in jelly jars and tie pretty ribbons around the rim. We make two or three recipes at a time. One year we made such a large "makin'", we made it in a lobster pot. Fun stuff.

1/2 cup instant tea (regular)
2 cups Tang
3 ounces Wyler's powdered lemonade
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 cup sugar

Mix all. This is my Grandmother's original recipe, and I haven't found Wyler's lemonade in years but for some reason I always transcribe this recipe exactly as she gave it to me. But anyway Countrytime or Kroger brand or just whatever brand of lemonade works just great.

It's so pretty in the jars, all the different colors make layers and striations.

This recipe makes a tea that is orange-y in taste - which surprises some folks the first time they make it, so be forewarned.
The amounts can be altered of course, to suit your tastes.
