Mimi’s Spiced Tea (With Free Tu BiShvat Bucket List Printable)

Every year for a while now, I’ve been promising myself that I would make some time for Tu BiShvat. And so far I have been unsuccessful. After Hanukkah I’m always wiped, and then there’s the New Year’s get back to real life spree. Suddenly, here’s Tu BiShvat and I’ve got nothing. Oops. So this year, I’m taking a small step by sharing a fun bagless tea recipe and a printable bucket list. Gotta start somewhere!

Growing up, this giant batch of my mom’s spiced tea mix would get us through the winter. From waiting for the bus to snow days to sick days, this tea was the go-to hot beverage in our house. Look, I’m not saying it’s as miraculous as matzah ball soup, but you can’t deny the help of a big boost of Vitamin C from this drink!

For storage, the recipe recommends you store the mix in an airtight container. In the spirit of Tu BiShvat, I would go even further and say store it in thrifted glass canning jars. Just add a bit of ribbon tied around the top, and they make great little gifts for loved ones, friends, and neighbors.

Now, boil some water, add 2 Tablespoons of tea mix, and have a Happy Tu BiShvat!
