Hot Russian Tea Mix Recipe

The latest lifestyle trend, or the buzz word that everyone talks about, is slowing down, “cozy,” and simplifying. I know, I hear it and see it all over the internet. I’ve actually written about it frequently here on RE, as we live in a very quiet are of Bend (at least for 9 months of the year).

Speaking of cozy, it’s that time of year for teas and coffees. This cozy Hot Russian Tea Mix Recipe is a great idea for holiday gifts!

Easy Hot Russian Tea Mix Recipe

We get to experience “cozy” where we live. A small mountain home, one great room where everyone gathers (or 2 decks for summertime). When Paul and I first moved to Bend, we talked about the feeling of small, simple, quiet, new.

Even though we were busy with friends, our fixer upper (this summer), travels, and family, the days are still very quiet and slow, but not without meaning. (Want to come to dinner? wink-wink This photo was 2 winters ago on our back deck!)

A practice for me in the morning is to have my coffee (or tea) and listen. Listen before I start. What does the day have for me? Morning time is very important, because our intentions can take us running! (2 winters ago – so much snow!)

October a month to plan

October is a month to live in the present. To not miss the magical moments that we could never have prepared for, because we’re so tightly woven to our goals and agenda.

Like being flexible, and having last-minute company over for dinner. I’m also hosting 9 of my girl cousins for a “cousin reunion” (coming up) that I’m very excited about.

Goals are importanting, but talking is different than doing. Paul and I met a very nice man who moved to our area the same time we did. Selling their family home, downsizing, wanting a more cozy lifestyle, with less stuff, and more experiences with people. Can you say a big AMEN to that?

It was a lot of work to get to where we are today. Intention, planning, action, praying, believing, trusting, and waiting.

How to make Hot Russian Tea Mix Recipe

This afternoon, I’m sitting down to get some work done, and I’m sipping on a cup of  tea.

  1. Combine the ingredients together in a giant bowl.
  2. Mix together and store in an airtight container.
  3. Fill a mug with boiling water, stirring in 2-3 teaspoons of mix.
  4. If all you can find is presweetened lemonade, then use the amount of dry mix needed for a 2
    quart pitcher according to the package instruction, and leave out the sugar.

This recipe is an oldie but goodie, from my dear friend Jeannie. I wish we could have a cup of tea together today. But because we can’t, I’m heating up the water, and enjoying a gift that she gives us every year for Christmas.
