This is a classic for me and reminds me of summer time. Starbucks use to have Valencia syrup (orange) and I use to have a Passion ice tea with 1/2 classic and 1/2 Valencia and it was delicious. They have since discontinued the syrup. I continued to brew this at home and ice it. I don’t ever have it hot. Sometime about fruit herbals being hot doesn’t appeal to me.
I love this blend and regularly brew it up iced to up my water intake. I don’t sweeten it anymore because I find that it doesn’t need it. It’s a treat when I do get it from Starbucks and sweeten it, so I will leave it to Starbucks. I’ve also mixed this with some frozen berries and ice and served it in pretty punch cups and people have loved it, not knowing that it doesn’t have any added sugar in it. A good go to!
