Herbal Tea Lemonade a Starbucks Knockoff
I am a HUGE lemonade addict… Yes, it’s that serious. I would rather drink lemonade than any other beverage on the planet. There is just something special about that sweet pucker of lemon flavor that I just adore. I tend to like my lemonade high on the pucker meeter, leaning more for the tart rather than the sweet.
As much as I love regular, fresh squeezed lemonade I don’t love all the calories and sugar that come along with that. I tend to keep the good stuff only for special occasions. Starbucks has a shaken lemonade that I just adore. It’s a combination of herbal tea and lemonade and it’s divine. Again, this is more of a drink reserved for special times due to the sugar content and the high price tag. Soooo, what’s a girl to do when she has a craving for Starbucks shaken Passion Tea Lemonade… I DIY it of course!
I have experimented with a few different flavors on top of the Passion tea and have found three that I just love. Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion is my all time favorite paired with lemonade and then my other two favorites are Tazo Passion and Vanilla Rooibos Parfait.
I brew up some tea using two tea bags, steeped in roughly two cups of hot water. Then I transfer the tea to a bottle and add more water until the bottle is full. My bottles hold a little more than 1 quart of liquid. If your container is larger, you may want to steep more than 2 tea bags.
To make the herbal tea lemonade, fill a large glass or jar with ice and a single serving Crystal Light lemonade packet…
Then I pour the tea over the lemonade mix and the ice, stir and enjoy!

My all time favorite herbal tea lemonade is the peach tea mixed with raspberry lemonade… To die for flavor!! What I love about this drink is the burst of fruit flavor without any of the guilt!! What are your favorite flavor combinations?
