orange spice tea mix recipe with tang and cloves*This post contains affiliate links. See my Disclosure Policy for more information.

When I was growing up we went to my grandma’s house almost every weekend and when I was old enough to start drinking tea the first kind I really remember having was this spice tea that my grandma made. I don’t know if she invented the recipe or not but to this day I can’t drink it without memories of sitting in her kitchen mixing it “to taste” (I always put an extra scoop in mine to make it extra sweet) from her well-used little Tupperware bin with the handwritten label.

This orange and spice tea mix recipe features just 5 ingredients, and they’re all dry and store well in a closed container for mixing on demand — whenever the mood strikes!

Also Fun Fact: NASA used Tang in early manned space flights!

I should make a new recipe card, as this one has definitely been through some stuff, but this is my Grandma’s handwriting so it stays.
