Ultra-lite Backpackers' Spiced Tea

Pack enough for 9 liters in about 1/3 cup. Sugar free, carb free, fat free, and weighs next to nothing.  

  • 2 tubs Crystal Light Peach Tea
  • 1 tub Crystal Light Pink Lemonade
  • 2 tubs Sugar Free Tang
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Dump all the powders together, mix well making sure there are no clumps.  
  • Add about ½ tsp of powder per 8 oz. of hot water.  Or, if you're not into measuring while camping, fill your Jetboil with the amount of water you want to drink, heat it to the temperature you want, and add the spiced tea mix to suit your taste!
  • I store my mix in a used spice bottle with a shaker lid, and just use the shaker rather than trying to measure it.
