I started drinking
Starbuck’s shaken iced Passion Tango tea lemonade a few years ago. From the very first time I became addicted to
it and couldn’t get enough. However I
slowly became disappointed with it when certain Starbuck’s locations (most)
used way too much ice to make it. The
result was a drink that I could literally finish in one gulp. Of course you could also ask them to make it
with little ice or no ice at all, but then the drink is simply too warm and won’t
be as satisfying.
So rather than be disappointed
over another ice packed Passion Tango lemonade I decided to make it at home
instead. The secret ingredient is the
type of tea you use, which in this case is Passion Tango tea from Teavana. Of course that tea is expensive, so I decided
to substitute it with the version Tazo makes (this tea is also expensive and
difficult to find in the 24 filter bags).
Regardless of the brand you use just make sure it has ingredients such
as hibiscus, any form of citrus flavour, and cinnamon. For the lemonade portion I like to use the
version from Simply Lemonade with raspberry.
