tazo passion tea lemonade
Tazo Passion Tea Lemonade is one of my go to drinks at Starbucks. It’s cheap, low in calories, and very refreshing. I love the sweet and citrusy combo. I have made this drink at home before with Crystal Light but I was looking for something a little more healthy.
I love how quickly this drink comes together and how yummy it is. It just makes any day feel like summer – and not the muggy summer I am experiencing right now – but one of those perfect California nights, where the air is dry and the breeze is crisp.
And to make this drink even more fun, add a cute, striped paper straw to it. It’s sure to make any day brighter.
Can you see I enjoy the simple things in life? My mother has always said I am easy to please, just get me a roll of washi tape or put a cute straw in my drink, and I am one happy camper.
So pour a glass and enjoy your sweet, snotty nosed, teething baby laugh at you, or whatever you find yourself doing today.
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 tazo passion tea bags
- 3 Tbsp sugar* (or sweetener of choice)
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
Steep your tea bags in your hot water for about 6 minutes. I just go ahead and do it in my quart sizes mason jar. Once steeped remove your tea bags and add in your lemon juice and sugar. Let your sugar dissolve and taste to make sure it's to your desired sweetness, if not, add more sugar. Once you find that perfect balance of sweet, fill the rest of your jar with ice. At this point you can either enjoy your yummy drink or place it in the refrigerator to get extra cold. Enjoy with in the next 24 hours.
*I used organic cane sugar because that's what I had on hand. I've also used stevia and a stevia/sugar combo. They have all turned out great.
