I think I should stay out of the pantry! It’s keeping me busy!


Of course – I was low on one of my favorite tea mixes – and with me drinking as much tea as I do – I am always making this one:

 


MY ORIGINAL ORANGE TEA MIX


In bowl, whisk well:
1 cup instant tea powder
2 cups Tang
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons grated orange rind**


Depending on the tea cup/mug size – boiling water and a spoon or two of mix.
Also great iced!


Fancy it up with a slice of fresh orange on the side of the glass.

 


MY ORIGINAL LEMON TEA MIX


In bowl, whisk well:
1 cup instant tea powder
2 cups powdered lemonade mix
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind**


Depending on the tea cup/mug size – boiling water and a spoon or two of mix.
Also great iced!


Fancy it up with a slice of fresh lemon on the side of the glass.


**Save money and make this yourself!


I absolutely REFUSE to purchase grated lemon or orange peel in the stores – it's a total rip-off!


Always buy the best looking citrus you can with bright skin; scrub well; dry completely; grate onto paper towels and allow to dry – spread it out. It will dry in a day or two – and if you want – spread out on a baking sheet and dry in a low (190 – 200* F.) oven until dry. Transfer to paper towels (spread out) to cool completely before storing in a jar in the pantry.


It's amazing just how cheap you can do this! 

 

You could make this using an artificial sweetener if you want.  I do not like artificial sweeteners – they are not good for you.  So I make my own mixes and I don't buy any Crystal Light, etc.
