Russian Tea

What you need: 

3 lemons
3 oranges
2 tablespoons whole cloves
2 cups sugar
2 cups pineapple juice
8 cups weakly brewed tea

What you do: 

1. Squeeze juice from the lemons and oranges. Pour some boiling water over the cloves and let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Strain the juice and cloves. Add vegan sugar and pineapple juice, and mix well.
3. Add the tea and heat to boiling. Serve hot.
This is a favorite recipe from my childhood that has now become part of a holiday tradition. Every Christmas, when I go home to visit my parents, my mother and I sip this tea and eat vegan Christmas cookies as we decorate the tree together. Enjoy!

My mom makes this with instant Tang, instant tea- lemon flavor.  It's good but this is EVEN BETTER!  I just used orange juice instead of fresh oranges and added more OJ for the pineapple juice- yum.

I made this with apple juice because I didn't have pineapple juice, and thank you! It was DELICIOUS!  :)>>>

Any suggestions for a substitute for the Pineapple (I can't stand the stuff)?

It would be delicious with apple juice...

I've also had a dry version that tasted somewhat similar to this but it was given to me. I just got done making this and I LOVE it! While I was making it my mother kept going on about how good is smelled and she had to try some as well! We both love it and I will be making this a lot! Thank you :)

What sort of tea do you use?

(This sounds so nice. Like Sangria/mulled wine... but more wholesome.  :) )
