Iced Peach Tea Lemonade Ingredients
You don’t need a lot of different ingredients to prepare a Starbucks peach black tea lemonade. In fact, you just need a peach, half a lemon, black tea, simple syrup, and ice.
Adjust the quantities to make the homemade Starbucks peach tea suit your palate perfectly. If you don’t want it sweet, you can omit the simple syrup. It’s also possible to switch it for your preferred sweetener – agave syrup, Splenda etc.
What is Simple Syrup?
Simple syrup is basically liquid sugar. A lot of Starbucks recipes use this ingredient for sweetness. This is because liquid sugar blends better than grains of sugar in cold beverages.
You can either make your own or buy it, but since it’s literally sugar dissolved in water, it’s more economical to make your own.
How to Make Simple Syrup
Simple syrup is typically one part sugar to one part water. Combine 8 ounces of hot water with 8 ounces of white sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar and keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Homemade Starbucks Peach Tea Variations
The Starbucks peach black tea lemonade is made with different ingredients to this summer Starbucks drink recipe. You might like to try both ways and see which you prefer!
Starbucks uses a peach juice blend, iced green tea and lemonade. I actually prefer my copycat recipe, even though it’s different. I prefer the taste of black tea and you can’t beat using fresh peach and fresh lemon juice!
Starbucks uses a blend of green teas, lemongrass, lemon verbena, spearmint and natural flavours. Their peach juice blend is sugar, water, peach juice concentrate, ginger, and various other fruit and vegetable juices. Their lemonade is made with water, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon oil.
If you are a green tea fan, why not try the recipe using that instead of black tea? You can also use bottled lemon juice, or even try lime juice. Omit the simple syrup or use another sweetener if you have a preference.
Some More Fruity Ideas
What else could you try? Well I bet this would be just as good using apricots! Nectarines would also be fine in a DIY Starbucks lemonade recipe.
Maybe add a splash of apple juice for a different flavour? Actually there’s a drink on the secret Starbucks menu for apple lovers. Ask for lemonade up to the first line, apple juice to the second line and then a few pumps of peach syrup! That makes peach apple lemonade, which is also wonderful.
What to Serve with Homemade Starbucks Peach Tea
If I were to order Starbucks peach black tea lemonade, I might also pick out a sweet snack to go with it. I am especially crazy about Starbucks oat bars and they go with any drink. They’re fibre-rich too which means they fill you up!
If you have another preference, you might like to pair your iced peach tea with your favourite cookie or cake. Or even a savoury snack. That’s the great thing about making this homemade Starbucks peach tea at home. You aren’t limited to Starbucks snacks only!
This summer Starbucks drink recipe is just perfect at any time of the year. I also love the Starbucks Homemade Pink Drink Copycat Recipe or the Starbucks Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso.
OK I admit it, I just want to work my way through the whole Starbucks menu one yummy treat at a time!
It can get expensive though. That’s why this DIY Starbucks lemonade recipe and other DIY recipes are so good!

I need to try this! yum
Since we don’t have starbucks in italy I don’t have a clue what the real thing does taste like BUT peach sweet tea is my fave and I’ve never tried to make it myself so I’ll have to try this. Thanks for the tip on the sugar syrup, it makes more sense than using sugar in a cold beverage
So simple to make and perfect for the summertime. YUM!
This looks and sounds so refreshing! I can’t wait to make it.
My sister loves the Starbucks tea recipes, I’ll have to share this with her. I usually just get coffee but I do love peach so may need to try this too.
This sounds like the perfect refreshing drink for hot summer days!
