CopyCat Passion Tea Lemonade

I LOVE the Tazo Passion Tea Lemonade from Starbucks.  When I am not pregnant, I usually get an iced latte or a refresher.  But, now that I am keeping the caffeine at bay and save my daily intake for my morning cup of coffee, I was wanting a substitute.  This CopyCat Passion Tea Lemonade is amazing!  And even better, I can make it at home for a fraction of the cost!

You only need 4 things for this drink:  Lemonade, Tazo Passion Tea, Ice, and a sweetener of your choice.

CopyCat Passion Tea Lemonade - Joyful Momma's Kitchen

It is simple to make this and have it ready on hand. 

Here are the steps:

  1. Boil 8 oz of water in the microwave 
  2. Steep 2 bags of tea for 15 minutes. 
  3. While it is still warm, stir in 2 spoons of sugar (you can use any sweetener and as much or as little as you want) 
  4. Give it a taste to make sure it is nice and sweet and then stick it in the fridge.

When you are ready for a glass, just fill your cup with ice, and pour in the tea and lemonade.  I like a ratio of 1 part tea to two parts lemonade.  That is how they make it at Starbucks.  You can play with it as much as you like.

*I normally use Simply Lemonade, but the store was sold out.  This was a great substitute if you don’t mind a tiny bit of artificial sweetener.  I will continue to use Simply Lemonade in the future although this tasted exactly the same*


Enjoy your icy drink and the sunshine!! Also check out my favorite Iced Coffee drink. Perfect for sunshine refreshment!

  1. I love this recipe, but I use 8 oz tea and 4 oz lemonade, and I make my own simple syrup as sweetner. This is my go to refresher daily.

  2. What kind of tea is it that you use?
    Because I'm from Germany and we don't have this tea here... 🙂

  3. Even Better:
    Brew tea: Pour 1 qt boiling water over 4 tea bags, steep 10 min, pour over ice.
    After the ice melts:
    Add 2 tubes of Crystal Lite lemonade mix - any flavor - I like the raspberry best. (The kind used in 16 oz bottles of water) add 1qt cold water. Pour over ice ine a glass Enjoy!!

  4. Starbucks actually uses one part passion tea to about 4/5 part lemonade, that might be less tart if you give it a try. Also, try shaking the mixture or using your own simple syrup for a sweetener! (:

  5. I've been doing a spin on this using Twinnings pomegranate raspberry and crystal light lemonade and it's amazing!!!

  6. I never thought of this! Can't wait to try it. Does it taste just like the Starbucks drink? I mean, I'm sure it's close enough.
