Passion Iced Tea Sparklers

Happy Thirsty Thursday!

Nothing is better than Passion Iced Tea from Starbucks in the summer. However, now living in the suburbs I can no longer walk out my front door and grab an iced tea from Starbucks across the street. The other day I was at the grocery store and saw that TAZO came out with passion iced tea bags. What is great about these bags is that you only need one bag to make 4 quarts of iced tea.

Of course I couldn't just have plain iced tea, I had to spice it up a little to make it perfect for sitting on the back porch.

  • 1 Tazo Passion Iced Tea Bag
  • 1/4 cup agave or honey
  • Ice
  • 2 cups sparkling sater or seltzer
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • Strawberries

  • Boil water for iced tea and add agave or honey; once boiled add tea bag and steep for 30 minutes to 1 hour (depending on how strong you want your tea!). 
  • Remove tea bag
  • Fill glasses with ice and mint leaves
  • Pour iced tea over ice filling half way
  • Top iced tea with sparkling water and stir
  • Garnish with strawberry
And most importantly enjoy!!
Happy Pinning!
