Starbucks Iced Teas

  • Iced teas are popular and available all year, not just the warmer months.
  • Teas are brewed as a concentrate and water or lemonade is added once the order is placed. You can ask for reduced water or lemonade for a stronger tasting iced tea.
  • Common customizations include ordering an iced tea with extra ice or light ice (less ice), extra lemonade, or with light (less) lemonade.
  • Iced tea with lemonade tend to be more popular than just plain iced tea and non-flavored iced teas (like Iced Green Tea) are more popular than the flavored ones (like Iced Peach Green Tea).
  • Iced teas are no longer made with sweetener by default as they were in the past but adding cane sugar or classic syrup is common. Iced tea lattes are still made with sweetener.
  • All teas are from Teavana, except for the chai concentrate, which is from Tazo. Iced Chai Tea Lattes are made from the pre-sweetened chai concentrate. Iced Matcha Tea Lattes are made from a sweetened matcha powder.

Iced Teas at Starbucks, Ranked

15. Iced London Fog Tea Latte
Ice + 2% Milk + Earl Grey Tea + Vanilla Syrup
Caffeine in a grande: 40 mg
Calories in a grande: 140
Sugar in a grande: 25 g

The main reason this iced tea is the least popular is because as soon as the barista says “we have to steep your tea hot first, so it’ll take a little bit for your drink to be ready,” people switch their order to Iced Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte.

14. Iced Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte
Ice + 2% Milk + Royal English Breakfast Tea + Cane Sugar
Caffeine in a grande: 40 mg
Calories in a grande: 140
Sugar in a grande: 25 g

This is supposed to be brewed hot, then cooled down with ice before adding the milk, but most stores will just use the black tea concentrate and dilute it with milk instead of water.

13. Iced Matcha Lemonade
Ice + Lemonade + Matcha Blend
Caffeine in a grande: 80 mg
Calories in a grande: 120
Sugar in a grande: 27 g

This one’s a bit of an acquired taste. It’s the least popular iced matcha drink.

12. Iced Matcha Tea Latte
2% Milk + Ice + Matcha Blend
Caffeine in a grande: 80 mg
Calories in a grande: 200
Sugar in a grande: 28 g

The matcha blend is made of sugar and matcha. Matcha can easily clump so if the powder isn’t mixed or shaken well, you may be chunky bits.
