Starbuck's Passion Tea Lemonade

Starbuck's Passion Tea Lemonade
Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade 
 

I've seen a lot of pins for this Starbuck's passion tea lemonade on Pinterest.  It must be really popular because I had to go to three different stores to find the Tazo passion tea.  The first two stores were completely sold out!

I also had to got to Starbucks to actually taste a passion tea lemonade because, believe it or not, I've never had one.  This recipe tastes exactly like the Starbuck's passion tea lemonade.  My family thought it was too tart, but I liked it.

The box of twenty tea bags was five dollars which I thought was a bit much, but that's because I'm cheap.  The recipe said to use two tea bags for one cup of water, then mix the tea with the lemonade.  I followed the directions the first time I made the tea.  Later, I made a second batch, and decided to try it with only one tea bag.  It worked just fine, I just had to add more tea to the lemonade.  I also made my own lemonade because it's cheaper than buying the store bought stuff.

Lemonade
1 cup sugar
1 cup lemon juice
2 quarts water

Tea
8 ounces (1 cup) water
2 bags of Tazo passion tea  

Passion Tea
1 part tea
2 parts lemonade
(*if using one tea bag, mix 1 part tea and 1 part lemonade)

Directions
1.  Steep two bags of tea in one cup of water for 15 minutes.
2.  Mix sugar and lemon juice.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  Add water and mix well.
3.  Add 1/2 cup tea to 1 cup lemonade.  Add ice and enjoy!

    1. It's probably the same amount of sugar as the Starbuck's version. The original recipe used sugar free lemonade, so that's an option if you don't want so much sugar.

  23. You don't even know how happy you've made me! I was literally just telling my starbucks girl how I wish they would make the passion tea for the keurig. She laughed and said Ha, well then no one would come in here twice a day, morning for their coffee and mid-afternoon for their passion tea! So pinning this!
