Passion Tea Lemonade

"I got this recipe from a friend of mine who is the manager of our local Starbuck's. It is now my children's favourite lemonade drink. Great with a shot of vodka for a more grown-up beverage."

  3. This is awsome on a hot summer day!! I'm in love with this easy to make tea. No need to add any sugar at all, I think it's sweet enough. This is just wonderful! Very light and refreshing taste.
  4. I made this for my PAC baby! This is a really refreshing drink & is very simple to make. We don't have frozen lemonade concentrate in the UK so I used sprite with a lemon ice cubes & a touch of sugar. I also couldn't find any Tazo Passion Tea bags so used some of our regualr 'passion fruit with a hint of peach'. I can't wait to make this in the summer! Thanks J.Ko for another great recipe! :)
  5. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I love Starbucks passion tea lemonade-now I can make it at home! I only steeped for about 7 mins and I didn't have the lemonade concentrate, so I added about 36 oz of organic lemonade and topped the rest with water. Thanks for posting! This will be a frequent summer beverage!


<img src=""> I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, (I often refer to it as God's Country) with my husband, Jeff, kids Breagh and Brendan, and our two Standard Poodles; Kazz and Michelle. <img src=""> <img src=""> Wondering about my public name? It's a joke between a friend and me ... a twist on J. Lo (singer/actress Jennifer Lopez) - not that I can sing or anything! I am a nurse by profession but I am currently an at-home Mom. I will be taking my nursing refresher course this winter (January 2008), so I will be combing through the 'Zaar files looking for good make-aheads and crockpot friendly meals. I don't have a particular favourite cookbook, other than the one I've compiled for myself. I do, however, enjoy looking through cookbooks for inspiration. I've taken many of my favourite recipes and saved them on disc; as I find more good "make agains" I add them to my collection. I have also found many excellent recipes here on 'Zaar. Thank-you, all, for your wonderful contributions! I enjoy Highland and Irish dancing, learning about new cultures, sewing, gardening, camping and, of course, cooking and baking! We have hosted young Korean students for the past few years and I have really acquired a taste for Korean cuisine. Most of it is quite spicy-hot, but, like many asian foods, there is a nice balance of other flavours (sweet, sour, salty) happening also. Try it sometime! As for rating recipes; I follow the 'Zaar guidelines rather than making up my own - it just takes the guesswork out for those reading the reviews. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src=""><a href="¤t=kidfrecipeswap.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
