Spiced Tea Mix


With beverage prices rising at your favorite coffee shops, wouldn’t you like an inexpensive and tasty beverage you can make in your own home?

  • Store mix in airtight wide-mouth containers for best quality and easy use. Possible containers include see-through canisters and canning jars. Decorate canisters with a pretty bow, or cover canning jars with a cloth tied by a bow.
  • To cover canning jar, you need about ¼ yard (9 inches) of fabric. Cut a circle, preferably with pinking shears, so it hangs down about 2 inches from the jar top. Place the fabric under the band or over the band. Tie with a ribbon, holding the fabric in place with a rubber band if needed.
  • Print the recipe on a card and attach it to the jar.
