Why You’ll Love This

  • So simple to make: Iced tea lemonade is a very easy recipe. All you need to do is combine peach juice, simple syrup and tea with ice and serve!
  • Customizable: It’s easy enough to change flavours. Instead of peach juice, you can try any other type of juice, omit the syrup or even serve this warm rather than iced.
  • You can save money: Starbucks is great but it’s not exactly cheap, especially when you go multiple times a week. Making your own tea works out much more affordable, and the flavour will be every bit as delicious.

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, so you can prepare your own copycat Starbucks peach green tea lemonade and other drinks.

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. Not only is this great in ice peach green tea lemonade but it’s delicious in so many cocktails and refreshing beverages.

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. Starbucks black tea peach lemonade is one of their very tastiest drink options.

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 in your black tea lemonade Starbucks style, 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! Passion iced tea lemonade is a great recipe to serve along with this peach tea.

How to Store Peach Juice Iced Tea

  • Store: This green tea lemonade can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days (without the ice). Give it a good shake or stir before serving.
  • Freeze: You can freeze it if you want to. Try blending it frozen to make a thirst-quenching slushie type drink or else thaw, shake or stir and serve over ice.

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!

Iced Tea Starbucks Style FAQs

Do you have to use simple syrup to sweeten the iced tea?

The main reason for using it is that regular white or brown sugar won’t dissolve in cold liquids, so you need something liquid instead. Feel free to sub another kind of liquid sweetener or even a splash of regular or sugar free coffee syrup. If you don’t want to sweeten your black or green tea lemonade you can simply omit the sweetener altogether.

Should you use tea bags or loose tea to make the iced tea?

This is completely up to you. I like to make tea in advance, using tea bags, then keep it refrigerated, so I can drink it as it is or rustle up iced peach green tea or black tea whenever that craving hits!

  1. 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.

  2. 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
