Spark Four

Handmade Spark Challenge 4

To Teach Us Something


I had a really difficult time coming up with this challenge but I realized as I made Friendship Tea this morning that this was one of my favorite recipes and it needed to be shared (and it happens to fit the 4th challenge). 


Friendship Tea

1 cup Instant Tea

2 cups Tang (yup, the Astronaut’s drink)

2 pkgs of presweetened lemonade** (if unsweetened add 1 cup sugar)

1 tsp. cloves

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Mix Together ingredients and store in covered jar.

Use 1 heaping tsp. or more (to taste) to 1 cup boiling water. 

**I prefer pink lemonade just because it’s prettier.


   Step 1:  Dump in the two cups of Tang in a container big enough for 3-4 cups of dry ingredients.

008 Step 2:  Add your Instant Tea 009 Step 3:  Pour in your lemonade (pink if you prefer)  010 Step 4:  Add your cinnamon and cloves. 012 Here’s a side view of my double batch of Friendship Tea – Pre-mix.

013 I used a knife to do the mixing…seemed to work pretty well… 014 See, it’s still pretty after it’s been mixed! 


Next I warm up some water in one of my favorite handmade mugs (of course) and add the Friendship Tea.




be Comforted.
