Sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve posted, life has been busy and to be honest, I really didn’t know what to post about. I like being helpful. (Or just plain weird.) So today, I’m deciding to be helpful!
Raise your hand if you like Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade.
You raised your hand right?
If you didn’t, then you’re the one that’s weird. (Sorry.)
I love PTL SO much but I hate forking up 4 dollars to get it and I always end up with a lot of ice anyway.
So I decided to try making it at home.
And guess what???
I worked! It tastes just like it!
(Maybe I should start a Brewing with Cassie, I wouldn’t fail so much as I do with Cooking with Cassie…)
Anyhoo, I give you guys my secret.
So I have one of those fancy ice tea pitchers from Teavana:
Mine is purple though. Because, duh.
If you don’t have one of these then just use tea bags or another big infuser.
The thing I like about this one though, is you can make hot tea in it and it won’t warp.
So that’s what I did!
I took a 3/4 cup of Teavana’s Passion Tango Tea and put it in the infuser part.
Then I added 5 teaspoons of Teavana’s rock sugar. (This tea on its own is VERY tart)
I filled the jug with hot water and brewed it for 5 minutes.
Then I took the infuser out.
While it was brewing I made lemonade in another pitcher!
(I just got some of the frozen lemonade from the grocery store)
Then I took a third pitcher (I know, I have a lot of pitchers. But doesn’t everyone??) and poured half of the Passion tea in, then half of the lemonade. Then I poured the rest of the lemonade in with the Passion Tea.
Et Viola! 2 full jugs of Passion Tea Lemonade!
I had to put them in the fridge for a few hours to chill but you can always just put some ice in your cup if you want it cold right away.
And there we have it folks. I have enough tea to last me two weeks. (Just kidding, Matt really likes this. YES!)
And I never have to worry about my cup being too full with ice.
If you have any other questions or have other questions about brewing tea hot or iced, just let me know!
