Here's the recipe for one of the gift mix jars I will be giving for Christmas. I saw many soups, drinks, and cookie mixes at a gift show a week or so ago. They took canning jars, covered the tops with fabric edged with pinking shears and tied with a ribbon. They looked lovely and were selling for $8 - 10 a jar. Anybody else have mix recipes?
To serve: For each serving mix 3 teaspoons spiced tea mix and 1 cup boiling water in mix until mix is dissolved. Garnish each with a twist of lemon or orange peel and a cinnamon stick if desired.
Makes about 5-1/4 cups mix.

Can anyone give tips on making spiced teas without using powdered drinks? We especially like Constant Comment, which has a black tea base with spices and orange.
Also, what is the best way to prepare and store homegrown mint for mint tea?

I was gifted with two teas that suit your question. One was a China black tea with ginger (dried cubed /tiny cube) and some cinnamon stick. The other had dried orange and lemon (peel and pulp)and vanilla (either flavoring or bit of pod, I couldn't tell). Constant Comment might have some cloves, etc, in it. Google it.
I dry my mint and then keep it in a glass spice bottle. I then fill a tea ball with the mint and steep it in a cup of hot water for a cup of tea.
Combine Tang, cinnamon, cloves, and other spices with black tea for making a delicious hot or cold drink. This is a guide about spiced tea recipe using Tang.
