My father used to make Russian tea (Tang + instant tea + cinnamon stick) when I was a child. This is a better, more adult version. I think the tea bags need to soak longer than 5 minutes to give it a strong tea flavor. Otherwise, we've followed this recipe twice with great success, and I'm making it again tomorrow for another holiday party.

Excellent beverage. I served it at my annual Christmas party with rave reviews, even though I cheated and used store bought (no pulp) orange juice.

I made this for a Super Bowl party and everyone loved it! I brewed the tea for about 15 minutes instead of 5. I used store-bought orange juice, and, since I was out of cinnamon sticks, I just sprinkled in some Saigon cinnamon. I will definitely make this again!
