Growing up in the south, we would mix Tang with instant tea, or use it in brewed tea. It was very good.
Check out the Wikipedia entry for Tang. It'll make you laugh through your cold. Tang to clean your dishwasher?
Bailegirl - I'm pretty sure I saw a post about making Russian Tea on this web-site some time ago. Do a search here and I'm sure you'll find it.
I also take juices such as cranberry grape and heat it in the microwave when I'm sick. It gives me a much needed break from tea. But there is also bullion.
I just drink hot water. I know sounds horrible, but it is actually sweet, helps clear the chest.
Hot Tang for colds has been the treatment of choice for colds and flu in my family for many years. It is good and it does help.
I had never thought of this one before. It sounds great. I can wait to get to the store and buy some Tang. Some of the other hot drinks I've tried were not very good but since I like cold Tang I know I will like this one.
When I was younger, my Mom found a great recipe for "Russian Tea" using Tang and Nestea crystals, we drank this hot and it was delicious! I had tried Russian Tea at school at an "international foods" day in the 4th grade and loved it. Wish I could find this recipe now; it's really soothing when you're not feeling well.
I love this idea, but because I am diabetic I would have to limit the Tang. I drink alot of the sugar free "on-the-go" - you mix with water. So when I am stuffed up, or feel a cold coming on, I just fix the drinks as usual, then heat it up in a mug. That way I can drink several a day without affecting my blood sugar levels. Thanks for the idea with the Tang!
