That’s my poison of choice as well at Starbucks, though I’m hardly in there anymore. I might have to pick up some syrup and make some myself now that you’ve put this up here. Sweet.

Ricky

Haha, do you know what syrup they replaced melon with? I’m guessing they are using classic now? I still have a bottle of melon left and then I’ll be out =(

takgoti

No, I’ll have to ask next time I’m in, which might not be for a while. This is a maybe spring mostly summer drink for me anyhow.

I order their iced-tea lemonades on a pretty routine basis – they’re cheaper than most of their other drinks. My favorite is the green tea one though.

Cofftea

I’ve ordered their passion lemonade, but I prefer unsweetened ginger green lemonade. I tell them to use as many tea bags as they would for a regular iced tea. (2 for a tall, 3 for a grande and 4 for a grande). The exception to the unsweetened part is during the holidays when they have gingerbread syrup.- I don’t add lemonade to that though. Funny we went to Starbucks on the same day!:)

@takgoti, Agreed. I usually get this drink or fraps in the summer, but I was staring at the menu for a while. I really couldn’t decide what I wanted. Actually I just realized I could have bought a Vanilla Rooibos Latte or a some loose tea bag. They have satchels now! WohOooO =)

@Jillian, really? You like the green tea lemonade the best? I tried it once and I didn’t like it. My green tea lemonade always comes out really bitter. I guess the green tea doesn’t subdue the lemonade enough for me. I like the black tea lemonade actually. I usually get that over passion, because I find passion to be tooooooo sweet.

@Cofftea, unsweetened is a no no for me. I’ve tried it a few times, but cold drinks need to be cold for me. I love their green ginger tea hot.

Cofftea

@Ricky what does unsweetened vs unsweetened have to do w/ temperature?

Ricky

It’s just a matter of preference. I like hot drinks to be natural and cold drinks to be sweet. I mean you’d never drink juice hot.

Cofftea

Ok gotcha. That isn’t what you said. You said “Cold drinks need to be cold for me”. And I thought, “Well duh”. So I thought you meant it like how I don’t like cold pizza. It starts hot so it should stay hot. I can’t stand this one hot, it burns my throat.

Jillian

@Ricky: They must be making yours wrong because it’s not bitter at all to me, but it has a rather clean sort of taste to it. Maybe they just add more syrup at my Starbucks! :D

This sounds so good I had to go buy some Tazo tonight. I think I am going to mix mine with lemonade and grenadine.
