I am sort of getting bored with my usual water or lemon water that I drink each day. I don’t want to add very many calories though. I mean, that’s sort of the point of water – low calorie hydration. This recipe is a knock off of the popular Starbucks drink but much cheaper. And with only 77 calories per recipe, this is way better for you than soda!
Passion Tea Lemonade Cooler
- 2 Tazo Passion Tea Bags
- 16 oz water
- 5 oz lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade)
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
In a large glass measuring cup, add two cups of water. Place in the microwave and heat to a boil. Add the tea bags, sugar, and vanilla extract to the hot water. Allow to steep for 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let sit on the counter until a bit cooler. Refrigerate until cool (about an hour). In a large glass, add the tea, lemonade, and lots of ice. Makes one very large cup or two average size water glasses.

Great recipe! I have tried using this same tea, but I have found the flavor to be too strong. Adding the lemonade is a great idea!
The lemonade will definitely help. You could even try making the tea with only one teabag. Or half tea, half lemonade.
