Beat the Heat, Add Passion!



I’m used to having  four seasons, fall, winter, spring, and summer. I feel like it allows me to dabble in my love of warm seasonal teas.  However, I made a decision almost a year ago, to move to Texas and forgo, well my version of winter and fall. No more snow or watching the foliage change 😢.  I have to adapt and learn to make iced tea.

I moved late July 2015 and bypassed most of the 100° weather, yay me!  This year, will be my first experience with the Texas heat. I’m sure my leather seats and lack of tinted windows, will be lovely, not!  Such is the day in the life of a first world struggle.🌎

However, I still want my tea and don’t want to dabble in the southern sweet tea full of sugar and calories. Don’t get me wrong, it tastes very good, but most likely lacks real nutritional properties.

I did some research on Pinterest and came across a pin from Joyful Mama and found this recipe and tweaked it a little to make it more of my taste, plus the store was out of lemonade. So, those of you who are Starbucks fans will like it, it’s a copycat of Tazo Passion Tea Lemonade from Starbucks, without, spending a lot of money. I spent about $10 and I will have plenty left over to make later. Happy sipping.


4 ounces of Tazo iced passion concentrate

Tazo iced passion teabags brewed according to directions.

4 ounces of Minute Made 15 calorie Light Mango passion fruit drink

Optional: Stevia and strawberries.

I use a diffuser bottle that I got from Amazon and I can add fruit like the picture above.

You can always add more or less of the ingredients to suit your taste.
