Iced Passion Tea Lemonade

Passion Tea Lemonade

This lemonade recipe was inspired by Starbucks’ super popular passion tea lemonade. This delicious lemonade tea is perfect for any summer day. However, this version skips the refined sugar entirely in favor of an infused simple syrup made from honey which plays up the subtle lemongrass and cinnamon flavors found in the Passion tea blend.

Ingredients for this Recipe :

  • 4 Tazo® Passion® tea bags
  • 5 ¼ cup water, divided
  • 1/4 cup honey, preferably local
  • 4” piece lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Ice, to serve
  • Garnish: (optional) – Fresh lemon slices and Sprigs of fresh mint.

How to Make Passion Tea Lemonade :

Step One:

Bring four cups of water to a rapid bowl in a teapot or saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea bags to steep for several minutes before discarding.

Step Two:

To prepare the infused simple syrup, combine a quarter cup of water, honey, lemongrass, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken approximately 4-5 minutes.

Step Three:

Remove from heat and pour through a fine-mesh strainer to separate the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and set the remaining simple syrup aside to cool.

Step Four:

Combine the brewed tea, lemon juice, and remaining cup of water in a large pitcher. Add infused simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine.

Step Five:

To serve, fill four chilled glasses with ice before adding the sweetened iced tea mixture. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
