Wow, this must be the genuine recipe. There are so many variations of hot spiced tea recipes floating around on the net. I have never seen one from an actual Tang ad before.
This is the right recipe- my family used to make this when I was a kid, growing up down south. We used the recipe from the Tang jar. I’m so glad I found this- I’m living in the Yankee North, now :-) and will be making up batches to give as Christmas presents.
I remember my mother making hot tang for me when i was sick. I cheat on the recipe and use chai tea and mix it with tang =)

My Mother used to make a Russian Tea Mix with Tang. I think it had Instant Tea(or Bigleo Constant Comment Tea?), Brown sugar, cinnemon, nutmeg, clove ( maybe apple pie spices)- those are the flavors I remember. I’ll check with my sister over Thanksgiving & try to remember to repost.
