Starbucks Green Tea Lemonade Copycat Recipe

Aug 26, 2014
PSL has made it's way back to Starbucks this week and fall will be here soon. Now we can enjoy Green Tea Lemonade and have a little taste of summer year round with the homemade recipe!

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more to taste
  • 1 green tea bag
  • ½ cup boiling water 
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)
  • ¾ cup cold water
  • Ice cubes



1. Add 3 tablespoons sugar and green tea bag to the boiling water. Allow the tea to steep about 3 minutes or so before discarding the bag. Stir to make sure the sugar has dissolved.
2. Add the lemon juice and ¾ cup cold water to the sweetened green tea mixture.
3. Stir to combine well. Taste and if it’s too tart, add more sugar to taste.
4. Once you get the right level of sweetness, pour about half of the yield over lots of ice and enjoy.

Makes about 1 ½ cups Green Tea Lemonade before ice.


  1. Oh yum this look delish! I never do starbucks because I don't want to get hooked on spending $5/day on anything!!

  2. Omg thank you!! I just had a PGTL today and am already in grieving that they will be leaving soon, haha! Can't wait to try this :)
