Tip Tuesday: Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea

Who doesn’t love tea, right!? I’m a coffee drinker and a tea lover. When you think of a refreshing tea does the Starbucks Passion Lemonade tea come to mind? I scoured the Pinterest to find a recipe that I liked and that was simple.

Admittedly, I combined a couple to get this:

Simple Syrup

2 TBS water

4 TBS sugar

Mix in a saucepan and stir until sugar dissolves or place in microwave for 20 seconds, then stir until sugar dissolves.

Directions

  1. Steep tea in one cup of boiling water for five minutes. Set tea aside to cool for about 15 minutes.
  2. Pour tea and lemonade over ice.
  3. Stir in simple syrup to taste and serve immediately.

*Note: You’ll notice in my picture above I initially used vanilla extract in my first batch and it wound up tasting like cough syrup. I made a second cup without the extract and it was marvelous.
