There is no better gift than Friendship Tea. My Mom shared this recipe with me years ago and I have given it as a gift since then. I love the way that Friendship Tea tastes too. Of course anything with Tang in it reminds me of my Aunt Ida. You can make up a large batch and prepare it for gift giving. It makes a fabulous Christmas Gift packaged in a Mason Jar with a ribbon attached like above. Regardless if you choose to make it for yourself or for a gift it will be a beverage that everyone will enjoy.
Everyone has a different way of packaging this spiced tea mix. I liked the way these were packaged in "re-cycled" containers covered with contact paper and 3-D Christmas design teapot stickers attached to the front. My Mom received this as a gift. The perfect sized container would be a cocoa container or you can purchase tins at the dollar store.
If you are looking for a homemade gift that doesn't cost a lot but that your friends will truly enjoy consider making a batch or ten of this Friendship Tea to give. Trust me everyone who receives it will know it came from the heart.
