Homemade Holiday Gift: Russian Tea

I can’t even believe that we’re only a couple days away from Christmas! This entire year has just flown by. And our January is already filling up, so there’s definitely no resting in our house after the holidays are over!

Are you done with all your shopping? I still have a few small things to get, and really no time to do it. But I’m sure I’ll figure something out! One thing I did get done are these homemade gifts for my co-workers. Each year, I like to make some sort of goody for my colleagues – they mean so much to me. One year I did peppermint bark. But this year and last, I made my mother-in-law’s Russian Tea. And I think it’s the winner.

It’s like pure comfort in a hot mug.
