My friend Amy asked me for the recipe for Russian tea, so I thought I would also share it here. I got this recipe from Fred's mom years ago, and I love it. I use decaf tea though so I can drink it at night, which is when I think it tastes best!
Boil 8 cups of water and 2 family-size or 6 regular tea bags for 10 minutes. Boil 5 cups of water, 1 and 1/2 cups sugar, and 20 cloves for 10 minutes. Combine into larger pot and add 12 ounces frozen orange juice, 2 and 1/2 cups pineapple juice, and 4 tablespoons lemon juice. Makes 1 gallon--keeps 6 weeks.
Go on, try some. You know you want it.
