Just like Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade

Well this little baker has gone back to the classroom so there are a lot more papers to grade and a lot less time for baking.  I love bringing something yummy with me to work like a fancy flavored ice tea or an iced coffee to make the day go by faster and the middle schoolers easier to take at 7:30 in the morning.  I love Tazo's passion tea and was thrilled to see an iced version for the summer.  Paired with lemonade, it's an awesome treat but at over $3, it's a bit pricey.  I decided to scour the web for some imitation recipes and after some tweaking, decided that this is pretty darn close.  For another yummy iced beverage, check out my dear friend's recipe for an iced mocha at Memories by Christine.

On a totally unrelated note, check out my friend Sarah's new blog called Monday's Love.  Both the author and the blog are completely wonderful.
