Russian Tea, Anyone?

With the recent snow storm threats here in the South,
I feel it's only proper that I share something
I am beginning to consider an essential accessory for wintery days at work.
When it is cold outside, there is little I enjoy more than a nice hot drink.
Coffee is always a staple, but sometimes I start craving somethin' a little different ...
My Nana's Russian Tea has been the perfect fix lately.

SO, I spent this past weekend stocking up on a supply for the upcoming week.
It has been just the mid day pick-me up I have needed to push myself
 through the remainder of the workday and back home to my muchkin!
Nana's Russian Tea

7 cups water (bring to full rolling boil)

3 regular size tea bags
1 tsp whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
cover, simmer for 5 minutes

Stir in 1 cup truvia (more or less depending how sweet you like it)
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
*try fresh squeezed for a clean recipe:)

Tip: I store this in the refrigerator and bring to a boil everytime I want a fresh cup.
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I have:)
No pressure, but I'll love you forever if you will whisper a prayer
and cross your fingers for a few weekend snowstorms!;)
