Honey Citrus Mint Tea: How to Make Starbucks' Former "Medicine Ball Tea" Secret Menu Item by Jessica Acree
There's something magical about sipping hot tea when you're not feeling quite up to par. I am by no means a connoisseur when it comes to the art of steeping tea leaves, but I can appreciate a soul-soothing cup, especially when coping with a seasonal case of the blahs – stuffy nose, sore throat and the general fog of sinus congestion.
Starbucks has a little cold buster I'd like to tell you about. The "Medicine Ball" was originally only part of their secret menu, but the customer creation became so popular it's now on the regular menu under the name Honey Citrus Mint Tea. Here's how to make your own version of Medicine Ball Tea at home!
- 2 Teavana loose leaf tea bags (Mint Majesty and Peach Tranquility)
- hot water
- steamed lemonade
- a touch of honey
Here's how to make it:
- Steep the tea bags in the hot water.
- Add the lemonade and honey. Stir.
Starbucks claims the flavors "mingle tastefully well together for a tea that comforts from the inside out." It will rock your world.
Honey is known to be a natural cough syrup packed with antioxidants, but you could lower the sugar count by substituting the lemonade for lemon juice.
