Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade Recipe

Ingredients and Substitutions

Green Tea Concentrate.  There are many different green teas available to choose from. When you are shopping for your tea bags at the grocery store, we recommend looking for a green tea with spearmint.

If you are not able to find a green tea with spearmint, you can choose a regular green tea, or green tea with lemon. 

Peach Juice. There are several different types of peach juice you can choose from. We recommend using a peach nectar, in order to get the full peach flavor.

You can use any type of peach juice that you enjoy, or even make your own by boiling peaches and making them into a puree. 

Lemonade. There are also several different options when it comes to lemonade. An easy option is to pick up a bottle of the Simply Lemonade from the refrigerator section at the grocery store.

You can also make a bottle of lemonade from concentrate, or use powdered lemonade and mix it with water, such as CountryTime Lemonade. 

We often choose to make our own homemade lemonade, by squeezing lemons into your water and adding sugar to taste. Whatever type of lemonade you choose to use, make sure it is fully prepared before adding it into this drink recipe.

Ice Cubes. There are also many different ices you can choose to add into your lemonade. You can use basic ice from your icemaker, or buy filtered ice, or chewy ice. 

How to Make Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade:

Step 1: Make Green Tea Concentrate

To begin making your peach green tea lemonade, start by heating water to brew the teabags in. You can do this by bringing water to a boil on the stove top or microwaving a little bit of water for a few minutes until it is very hot. 

Once hot, add the tea bags and allow it to steep for a few minutes. This will make your tea concentrated. 

We want to use a little bit of water to brew the tea in so that it is extra strong. After the tea has brewed for about 5 to 8 minutes, remove the tea bag and let the tea cool. 

Step 2: Add Peach Juice, Lemonade and Tea

Now, into your glass add peach juice, lemonade, and your green tea concentrate that has cooled. Stir the mixture to combine it. 

Step 3: Scoop in Ice & Shake

After your peach juice, lemonade, and tea have been stirred together, add ice as you wish, then serve the drink right away and enjoy!

Storing this Iced Tea

For the best results of storing the drink, we recommend keeping it either in a large mason jar in the fridge, or in a pitcher in the fridge. 

If you wish to keep your iced tea at room temperature, but still have it nice and icy, we recommend storing the tea in an insulated Tumblr or insulated cup. This will help keep your beverage nice and cool no matter the room temperature. 

Tips & Tricks

Brew strong. The main key to making your drink turn out fabulous is to brew the teabags in just a little bit of water and let the tea cool before adding your other mix-ins to the drink.

This allows you to have the tea flavor, without making the drink too watery. 


How to Make a Big Batch

You can also make a big batch of this recipe, simply by multiplying the ingredients in the recipe card below.

To make a half gallon of iced tea rather than a cup, we recommend using approximately eight teabags in 4 cups of water to make the tea concentrate. 

You can then add 2 cups of peach juice and 2 cups of lemonade to the mixture before stirring to combine.

This will give you 8 cups of the tea mixture before adding ice. Add ice as desired. 

Cold Brew Tea

You can also cold brew the green tea if you prefer. To cold brew the tea, you can simply add the teabags to the same amount of lukewarm water.

Then place the tea and water together in the fridge. Refrigerate overnight, then remove the teabags and add your cold brew green tea to your drink mixture. 

Added Fizz

If you like the bubbliness of carbonated beverages, you can also add a bit of carbonated water into this mixture for the fizz.
