Why You’ll Love This Iced Tea Recipe
Nothing says summer like a refreshing iced tea drink on a hot day. One of my all-time favorites is the Starbucks iced peach green tea lemonade, but I personally don’t love the price tag or the sugar content.
As a Registered Dietitian I’m definitely not anti-sugar, but lower sugar drinks just leave me feeling better, so I tend to opt for them. This copycat Starbucks peach green tea has all the same delicious, citrusy sweet flavors without as much sugar (this version only has 2 grams of sugar).
Plus, you only need two simple ingredients for this Starbucks dupe. It’s so quick and easy to make- there’s no complicated steps or ingredients.
This iced green tea lemonade is also a great lower-caffeine option. An 8-oz serving of green tea only has about 35 mg of caffeine. This recipe calls for 16 oz, but you can adjust as you need to!
Get ready to elevate your hot summer day drink game with this lighter, yet equally satisfying twist on the Starbucks classic. Let’s dive in and create a healthier, homemade version of the Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade you can make the next time you need to cool down.
Iced Tea Lemonade Ingredients
Peach-Flavored Green Tea: Personally, I love the Bigelow brand and these tea bags are the ones I always grab. These are also a great option. I love using the peach-infused tea bags because they give you the same peach flavor without the added sugar of using peach juice.
Lemonade: You can grab any pre-made lemonade that you enjoy, but I like to use a low-sugar version. The Simply Light Lemonade from Simply Lemonade is my favorite. Or, True Lemon lemonade packets or Minute Maid Zero Sugar lemonade. You can use your own homemade lemonade too!

How to Make Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade
- Brew the peach-flavored green tea. Prepare 16 oz of peach-flavored green tea according to the instructions on the tea packaging. Allow it to steep and cool to room temperature.
- Fill a large mason jar (16 oz) or tall glass with ice cubes, and pour the green tea and lemonade into the glass. Stir gently to combine (you can also use a cocktail shaker).
- Enjoy! Garnish with fresh peaches or lemon slices if desired.
One of the best parts about this green tea lemonade recipe is that it’s SO customizable. Here are some of my favorite ways to change it up.
- Add slices of real peaches, frozen peaces, or even freeze-dried peaches.
- Add a scoop of freeze-dried strawberries.
- Use real peach juice or peach syrup if you don’t have peach-flavored green tea bags.
- Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in addition to the splash of lemonade for an even fresher, brighter citrus flavor.
- Use black tea, regular green tea, or any other variation of tea that you love.
- If you don’t have any lemonade on hand, squeeze some fresh lemon juice and add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup or honey (or a touch of simple syrup).
- Make a big batch! You can double this amazing summer tea and prepare a pitcher of iced green tea ahead of time and store in the fridge to enjoy for 2-3 days.
