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 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.

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

  3. 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! (:

  4. 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!!

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

  6. 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.
