Literally, my husband's aunt would make this. Considering many recipes out there that are a dry mix and they are wonderful...I wanted her's that is not a dry version. Finally got it tonight when I fed her daughter. Compared it to one I finally found online & they are similar but there are differences. I will be posting the one I found online as well. No matter how you fix Russian Tea, it is great beverage when you are sick. I like to take a safe to use cup and won't break, to a tub of hot as I can stand it water. Soak & sip on Russian Tea. Then go to bed. And I do feel lil better afterwards.
