Gatorade Tea

One of my favorite drinks in the winter is Gatorade Tea.  Because of my POTS and dysautonomia I am supposed to drink Gatorade every day; it helps to keep my blood volume up.  A few years ago I started making Gatorade Tea, which is basically Russian Tea made with Gatorade instead of Tang.  It's a great way to have a hot drink while still consuming the electrolytes I need.  I want to share the recipe for those of you with dysautonomia who may also benefit from this drink in the winter.


Gatorade Tea

2 Cups Gatorade
1 Cup instant black tea
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves

Mix ingredients well and store in airtight container.
Put 2-3 heaping spoonsful into a cup of  hot water.  Stir and enjoy.

The tea sounds yummy.  I have been putting 1/4 teaspoon  of salt of my flavored tea.  I'm unablr to have gatorade due to the sugar. I wonder if propel would work?
Take care of yourself I know from my experience when I get run down it takes along time to return to the way you were prior if  you do   pam

I don't remember every seeing an orange flavored propel, but if they make one I'm sure that would work to make the Russian Tea.
