Creating Custom Starbucks Iced Tea Drinks

The reality is that the Starbucks iced tea options can be a bit limiting. After all, they are a coffee chain! This doesn't mean that you have to restrict yourself, though! Here are some concoctions that you can whip up on your own:

21. Passion Tea with Apple Juice

Apple juice is such a great addition to passion tea. It adds crispness and sweetness, while still being pretty healthy. It elevates the natural flavors of the passion tea, allowing all of the components to mingle together beautifully.

22. Passion Tea with Raspberry Syrup

Maybe you are just looking to add some sweetness (and tartness) without making the tea any juicier than it already is. Well, then raspberry syrup is the perfect thing to add to the mix. It works well with the rest of the flavors so that you don't have to worry about it hijacking the other notes. Start with a single pump to determine how to strike the right balance.

23. Black Tea with Peach Juice

Peach really does go with all kinds of tea, including black. Thus, the addition of peach juice can really brighten up the tea. What's more, you won't even need to add sugar to the mix because the juice will be plenty sugary.

If you aren't a big fan of juice, then consider a couple of pumps of peach syrup instead. It will still offer up delightful flavors, while giving you a serious boost of sugar. If you are opting for the peach syrup, you may want to think about adding some lemonade to the concoction as well. You will be surprised by how well all these different notes work together!

24. Mango Black Tea with Coconut Milk

Yes, this can sound like a rather unusual concoction but you will be surprised how well these flavors work together. In particular, they combine to make the ultimate tropical treat. This makes it great for a warm day, just before you hit the beach. The coconut milk certainly lends a lovely creaminess to the mix.

25. Iced Chocolate Black Tea

This isn't available in the States but is found in Hong Kong and Singapore on occasion. Here, black tea is blended with mocha syrup, vanilla syrup, and cane sugar syrup if you choose. It can seem a little daring but the robustness of the black tea really brings out the chocolate flavor. And, don't forget to top it off with whipped cream for an ultra-decadent treat!

There you have it - the best iced tea drinks that you can order from Starbucks. It doesn't matter if you are a fan of tea or not, these concoctions are sure to get you on the right track. Go ahead and give them a try, you won't regret it.

Of course, there is no need to limit your options, either. If you are feeling particularly creative or adventurous, you now know how to whip up your own treats. Feel free to create from scratch if you like!
