Starbucks medicine ball tea recipe tips:

  • Microwave. You can also heat up the lemonade and water together in the microwave if you prefer.
  • Adjust to taste. You can easily add in more honey or use less to adjust the sweetness to your preference.
  • Double the recipe. This recipe is for 1 serving. You can double or triple the recipe to make multiple cups.
  • Lemonade. We used Simply Lemonade but feel free to use your favorite brand at the grocery store.
  • Tea Bags. We suggest using Teavana tea bags for a drink most similar to Starbucks. While you can use other brands, Teavana has the best flavor and results in the best drink in our opinion.

Variations:

  • Peppermint Extract. For extra mint flavor, add peppermint extract to the hot tea.
  • Peppermint Tea bag. If you want the extra mint flavor but don’t have extract, use a tea bag instead. This will still give you peppermint flavor.
  • Fresh Lemon. I like to top my cup of tea with a slice of fresh lemon. While optional, it is so refreshing and adds a special touch.
  • Iced Beverage. You can actually enjoy this recipe chilled as well. Simply serve over ice.

How to store:

This drink is best served right after making it. However, it can be stored in the fridge up to 24 hours.

When ready to enjoy, reheat the beverage in the microwave until heated through. Just make sure to use a microwave safe mug and heat to the desired temperature.

Is Starbucks Medicine Ball good for sore throat?

While it may not cure a cold, it can help ease a sore throat. Fluids help you stay hydrated and the hot tea will feel good on your throat. Hot tea is packed with antioxidants that can help a cold.

The honey is an added benefit and also helps to soothe your throat. The jade citrus mint green tea peach tranquility herbal tea is an amazing combination. Lemon is full of Vitamin C to help boost the immune system.
