    Of all the Russian Tea recipes out there, this one is the best with all the right proportions. Wonderful.

    It is just like I remember my mom making back in the 70's. It was a special treat to have it when friends came over in the evening. I love to have it on hand at my desk at work for and afternoon 'pick-me-up'! Yummy!

    We use to make a jar of this up and have it at the office and it was lovely on a cold winter day. Everyone enjoyed it.
