Why You Will Love this Recipe

  • Save $$ and Time | For about the price of one beverage at Starbucks you can purchase all of the ingredients to make gallons (okay, maybe not — but a lot) of this DIY Starbucks recipe.
  • Low Sugar | No added refined sugar and not much sugar from the peach juice.
  • EASY! Make up some of the green tea concentrate and you are ready to go!

If you use Teavana’s Jade Citrus Mint tea you capture the essence of this tea in these green tea bags! I have it on good authority that this is the tea they use.

Key Ingredients

Ingredients, directions and nutritional information in the printable recipe card at the end of the post.

Labeled ingredients for iced peach green tea; L-R Teavana Jade Citrus Mint tea, lemonade, peach nectar.
  • Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Tea | I’m not a huge fan of green tea, mainly because it quickly gets bitter. They key to brewing great green tea, is to just brew it a couple of minutes. Green tea does not have much caffeine, but it does have a little. Be sure to cool the hot tea before making this copycat recipe.
  • Real Peach Juice | I used all-natural peach nectar, no sugar added. Many recipes use peach syrup, or you can use fresh peaches, smashing them in the bottom of the glass. For the best peach flavor I suggest fresh peaches or peach juice.
  • Lemonade | I used Simply Lite Lemonade, made with Stevia so this becomes a skinnier low calorie drink too!
  • Ice Cubes | It wouldn’t be an iced green tea recipe without ice cubes! About a cup of ice should do it.
  • Garnish | Garnish with a fresh slice of peach and a sprig of mint.

How to Make Starbucks Peach Green Tea

First you need to brew your tea. Start with 1/2 – 1 cup of water (I love using filtered water, I believe it does make a difference) and bring to a gentle simmer. Pour hot water over the tea bag and allow to steep 2-3 minutes, no longer. Remove tea bags, then place in fridge to cool.

Fresh Tips

  • Make up a bunch of the green tea concentrate ahead of time and keep in your fridge. That way you can make this popular drink likkity split!
  • Add a sprig or two of mint to your hot water while steeping the tea, for an even mintier tea.

In a large glass filled with ice, pour the green tea over ice, then the pour the lemonade and the peach juice.

Give it all a stir and take a sip, adjust with a splash of peach juice or lemonade.

Serve with fresh peach and lemon slices, and a sprig of mint for a truly beautiful iced tea drink!

Variations & Substitutions

  • Real Peaches? Can’t get your hands on peach juice, make your own! In the bottom of a glass, muddle or mash 2-3 sliced and peeled fresh peaches.
  • Use any green tea of your choosing! Just don’t brew too long, look at the instructions on the package for how long to steep your green tea.
  • Out of Lemonade? Squeeze fresh lemon juice (about half a lemon) into the glass and either add a tablespoon of sugar and stir until dissolved. Or add a touch of simple syrup, try my homemade liquid cane sugar or you can even use maple syrup.
  • Shaken, not Stirred | If you prefer a bit frothier drink, then pour all of the ingredients in a large mason jar, cover and give it a few good shakes. You can do the same in a cocktail shaker, but the mason jar is less fussy and I am all about less fussy!
  • Make it Stronger | Instead of one tea bag add two when brewing.
