Starbucks At Home: How-To Make the Honey Citrus Mint Tea

One of my favorite cozy-time drinks is the Honey Citrus Mint Tea from Starbucks. You may also know this drink by its nickname, Medicine Ball. I find this tea so soothing when I need a little pick-me-up or a drink to cuddle up with. It’s the kind of drink that I like to have especially during snowy or rainy days. It tastes fruity, tart, and extremely refreshing. The best part? It’s super easy to make at home!

Seriously, you don’t have to be a barista to successfully make this beverage. Plus, you can most likely find everything you need to make it at your local Target.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Step 1: Heat up a cup of equal parts water and lemonade

You don’t have to be too scientific with the measurements here. I typically just grab a mug and fill it halfway with lemonade and then fill the rest with water. I microwave it for about 60-90 seconds. You can heat this mixture over the stove as well; it just takes a little longer.

Step 2: Add honey to your mug

After the water and lemonade mixture is heated, I stir in a bit of honey. I use about a teaspoon. If you prefer sweeter tea, add extra honey. If you want it more tart, add less honey.

Step 3: Add one of each tea bag to steep

It’s the mix of 1 Peach Tranquility tea bag and 1 Jade Citrus Mint tea bag that really gives you the delicious sweet yet minty flavor. I like to let these tea bags steep for about 3-5 minutes.

Step 4: Enjoy

Once your tea is done steeping, you can remove the tea bags or leave them in for continued diffusion. Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your drink!
