Copycat Recipe: Starbucks Iced Passion Tea

Hi guys!
Today I’m showing you how to save money at Starbucks by creating their Ice Passion Tea at home! I created a mini tutorial and adding a printable recipe card just in case you want to take this recipe with you. :) haha

Things you will need:

1

  1. Iced Passion Tea (Concentrate or Teabags)
  2. Sugar
  3. Water
  4. Ice
  5. Small pot
  6. Whisk
  7. Measuring cups
  8. Shaker (optional)

 

Making Starbucks’ Classic Syrup (simple syrup):

Essentially, their ‘classic syrup’ is just a basic sugar and water combo. The ratio is 2:1. Two parts sugar to one part water. You don’t have to make nearly as much as I am but I like to have mine ready so I don’t have to make it every single time I want a glass of tea.

In your small pot, bring 1/2 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil, whisking constantly. Once it starts boiling, immediately remove from heat and let cool. Or else you’ll get caramel :)

Preparing the tea

Pour 1/2 cup of the Tea concentrate and 1/2 cup cold water into the shaker. Now go back to your cool classic syrup and add one tablespoon to the shaker (more or less for your taste). Shake with ice. Pour into glass and enjoy! 5

I hope you give this a try! It’s my favorite tea right now! The classic syrup works well in any iced tea you like. Thanks guys! Enjoy!

    Wow this looks delicious! I may have to make this, not sure if I can find the tea passion concentrate but I can probably find a substitute! :O
