I always make the effort to try popular drinks because I have a food blog and it’s a good idea to know what people enjoy.
I was really hesitant to try Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade though.
I’m not really a fan of peach flavor. BUT, this delicious drink completely changed my mind.
The fruity flavor of peach compliments the iced tea lemonade in such a great way.
I immediately set out to create a copycat Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade so I could make it at home, especially on a hot day.
Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade
This Starbucks copycat recipe has three main ingredients - green tea concentrate, peach juice, and lemonade.
Green Tea Concentrate
This Starbucks drink, like this Iced Green Tea Lemonade Recipe, uses a green tea concentrate that consists of green tea blends with crisp notes of spearmint, lemongrass, and lemon verbena.
I recommend using these Tazo Zen Green Tea Bags to make the green tea concentrate.
They taste just like the Starbucks version and they’re available in grocery stores.
Some people say that Starbucks' green tea recipe consists of this Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea. Unfortunately, it tends to be a tad more expensive than the Tazo option.
To make a green tea concentrate, simply use two green tea bags for every one cup of water.
It’s best to use filtered water. Sometimes, tap water tastes like the chemicals used to treat it, which prevents the natural flavor of green tea to shine through.
Seep the tea bags for 2-3 minutes. Then remove them.
Allow the green tea concentrate to cool for a few minutes before combining with the peach juice and lemonade.
To learn how to make a big batch of green tea concentrate to store in your fridge, go to this Iced Green Tea Lemonade Recipe and scroll down to the “Make a Pitcher” section.
This homemade recipe is incredibly simple. We don’t have to make our own peach syrup from fresh peaches or frozen peaches.
This easy recipe calls for peach fruit juice, just like the Starbucks version.
I like to use Simply Peach, which is made with real peach juice and available at grocery stores.
If you know how to make a homemade peach juice from real peaches and want to use that, you definitely can.
Starbucks lemonade drinks are usually made with a lemonade concentrate.
But, store-bought lemonades work too! And they’re way easier.
Simply pour the pre-made lemonade into the green tea concentrate and peach juice.
If you would like to make a homemade lemonade to decrease the amount of sugar or calories in this peach tea lemonade recipe, you are more than welcome to use that instead.
How to Make Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade
The best way to make this Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade is to add the three main ingredients - green tea concentrate, peach juice, and lemonade - to a cocktail shaker or a large mason jar with a tight lid.
Shake well until combined and a little frothy on top.
Add ice cubes to a tall glass.
Pour the green tea peach lemonade over the ice. Then enjoy!
If you would like to make a Starbucks Peach Green Tea without Lemonade, simply replace the lemonade in this recipe with more peach juice.
Everything else stays the same!
Is Starbucks Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade Sugar Free?
No, it is not.
A grande Starbucks Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade has 18 grams of sugar.
This copycat recipe makes the equivalent of a grande from Starbucks, but the amount of sugar varies depending on the kind of peach juice and lemonade that are used.
This Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade Recipe doesn’t include simple syrup, liquid cane sugar, or even a sugar substitute.
All the sugar is from the peach juice and lemonade.
When using Simply Peach and Simply Lemonade, this recipe (as written in the recipe card) has 20 grams of sugar in a 16-ounce drink (grande size).
Does Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade have caffeine?
Yes, it does. It comes from the green tea concentrate.
According to Tazo.com, the Tazo Zen Tea has about 31-45 mg of caffeine in 8 ounces, when prepared with one tea bag.
This recipe uses two tea bags in 8 ounces of hot water, so it has 62-90 mg of caffeine from the green tea concentrate, when using Tazo Zen Green Tea.
Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea has about 16-25 mg of caffeine in 8 ounces, when prepared with one tea bag.
Once again, the green tea concentrate in this Starbucks copycat recipe is made with two tea bags in 8 ounces of hot water.
So, when using Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea, this Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade has about 32-50mg of caffeine.
