Russian Tea

This month’s recipe is sure to bring cozy warmth for the approaching chilly weather. Casey’s Russian Tea has been passed down in her family from generation to generation. This spicy beverage, filled with cinnamon and cloves, is the perfect way to start your day or to enjoy while wrapped in a fuzzy blanket and reading your favorite book. Hunker down and breathe in the spicy aromas that will gently lead you into relaxation.
