Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade Copycat 

 

Have you had the passion tea lemonade at Starbucks? It's delicious! Here's how to make it!

Each box of Tazo Passion tea comes with 20 tea bags. Put them all in the bottom of a gallon pitcher. Then boil 1 gallon of water in a pot on the stove. 

  • Once your water boils, pour it over your tea bags. Let it steep for 7-10 minutes. The longer it steeps, the stronger the flavor.
  • Once it is finished steeping, use one spoon to scoop out one bag at a time.
  • Since the water is still hot, I use a second spoon to squeeze out more flavor from each bag before I toss them.
  • Once you have all your bags removed, you place the pitcher in the fridge for it to cool.
  • In order to get the right measurements, I used a Starbucks cup. Fill your cup with tea to the second line (about 9 oz). Then add your lemonade until you reach the third line (about 3 oz).
  • When you buy this drink at the store, they pump their "classic syrup" into the drink. It's a clear syrup, so I'm guessing its a basic "simple syrup". To make a simple syrup you just bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil and let cook for a minute or so until the sugar is all dissolved. Let it cool in the fridge and you get a nice sugar syrup. Add this, or any other sweetener you like, to the tea. Adjust it to the sweetness you like.
  • Pour your tea mixture over your ice.
  • Put the lid on and shake it like crazy!
  • Delicious!
