TIP: mix 1 lg can pineapple juice and the full 12 oz can of orange juice. Divide into 3 portions. Use one and freeze the other 2 until you are ready for them.

Once you drink this tea, the instant Russian tea mix will become a thing of the past. There is no comparison. This is especially good on cold winter days or when you have a sore throat and want something warm to drink.
We keep a teakettle filled with this wonderful fruity drink on Christmas Day.
