To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

FALL SPICED TEA MIX
Fall is the perfect time to have a mixture of Spiced Tea on hand.
Mother's recipe was the absolute best which I make every October.
But one of my dear friends said she makes a variation of this
recipe and keeps it on the counter for her afternoon tea break!
What a marvelous idea!
Of course, when you catch the sniffles
it will certainly offer you comfort!
FALL INSTANT SPICED TEA MIX
1 jar of instant tea, unsweetened
1 container of Lemonade mix (I use Country Time)
1 container of orange drink mix (Tang)
Allspice or Cloves
3/4 cup tea
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup Tang
1 cup lemonade mix
1 t. cinnamon
1 t, cloves
I normally double this recipe, I also substitute Allspice for Ground Cloves.
You can adjust the strength according to your individual taste,
but we normally add 2-3 T. of mix to one mug of hot water.
