Orange Spice Tea Gift Mix & Free Valentine Gift Tag

Confession time.
I've not hardly made coffee at home since December. It's not because I wanted to cut down, it's because I've had something very yummy to take it's place! I was at my friend Valerie's house in December and she had a hot drink bar....cocoa, chai tea (uh, it's yummy too!) and orange spice tea.  She'd given me some of the orange spice tea before so it was the first thing I went for remembering it being good!
Well I decided to make some for my siblings for Christmas and kept the leftovers and have been enjoying it ever since! 
(I also won some of her chai tea at Bunco in January so who really needs coffee? Ha!)
Well you know me, I gotta share the goodness! And  I thought I'd gussy it up for Valentine's Day with a free printable gift tag! Here's the recipe....

Valerie's Orange Spice Tea Mix
*passed down from her Grandma!

2 cups Tang
1/2 cup instant tea with lemon (no sugar)
2 cups sugar
1 packet Koolaide lemonade
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground clove

Stir together or run through a food processor or blender for a finer powder. 
Pour into you favorite jar to gift and add a tag!

*To make: mix 1 tbsp with 1 cup hot water and enjoy!
(I wrote this on the back of a tag.)

This is just stirred together.  
When I spooned it into the jar it automatically layered somewhat! 

Since this mix is orange, I thought it'd be fun to make the tag an orangey color and not do the traditional pink or red. And Lil' Hunkie requested to make cookies on Tuesday night so I saved some back for props! 

And now for the tags! This is my first time making tags to share so they are a little big. 

And here's just a single image...

The lovely teacup graphic came from the awesome Graphics Fairy!
Feel free to re-size these but they are for personal use only.

My Blogiversary is coming up quick...Valentine's Day in fact and I've been collecting things for a giveaway and yep, adding a jar of mix to the pile! So stayed tuned!!

Happy Thursday lovelies!
