Comforts of Home Russian Tea

Tam D


This was my Mom's recipe. When I was growing up she made a batch at Christmas time. We'd spread a big puzzle out on the dining table and put the kettle on. Now it means happy times to my kids, and the comforts of home when they're away. Start a Russian Tea tradition in your family!
