  • Combine water, lemonade, and tea sachets into a saucepan and heat over medium heat.
    Snip off the tea sachet tags before putting the sachets in the saucepan. Make sure the sachets are fully in the water and not floating on top. Heat for 5 minutes.
  • Remove tea sachets and add honey.
  • Pour tea into a mug.
    A serving size of this drink is 20 ounces so use a large mug or pour yourself a refill after the first.



At Starbucks, you can ask for this drink with pumps of peppermint syrup. At home, you can use two drops of peppermint extract instead.
