Passion Tea Lemonade (like Starbucks)

Vickie Parks


This makes a wonderful flavored iced tea beverage, and the bright red color makes it look so appealing. Depending on the brand of tea you use, the passion tea blends have the flavor of hibiscus, lemongrass and apple that meld together for a delightful exotic taste sensation. This iced tea is the perfect summertime drink that'll bring that scorching heat down a notch on a hot summer day. And making them at home is a lot more economical than buying them at your local Starbuck's.
