Ingredients for this Starbucks golden yellow-orange colored drink!
Here are the Starbucks ingredients you will need to make this easy Starbucks lemonade green tea recipe. Make sure to scroll down to the recipe card for the full detailed ingredient measurements.
- Green tea bags– You can use whichever regular green tea you want but I decided to go with the Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea because it gave the closest drink the Starbucks one.
- Lemonade– You can use homemade lemonade or store-bought.
- Peach juice– To keep it simple we are not using real peaches but instead using real peach juice to ensure that the drink tastes really good!
- Ice- It’s an iced drink so we will need some good ice, make sure that it isn’t that stale ice that has been sitting in the back of your fridge because that will easily ruin the flavor of your drink.
- Lite lemonade- You can use a low-calorie lemonade to keep the calories in your drink low (ish)
- Green tea- You fully transform this drink if you decide to use a different kind of tea, I know black tea would go so well with the flavor profiles of lemonade and peach juice. Just be aware that using black te would increase the caffeine content of this iced beverage.

Frequently asked questions – FAQ

How much caffeine is in this Starbucks iced green tea peach lemonade drink?
This drink contains caffeine because of the use of the green tea bag but it doesn’t have as much as black tea or a cup of coffee would. For one tea bag. One brewest bag of real green tea contains anywhere between 25-35 mg of caffeine.
What Lemonade does Starbucks use in their drinks?
Starbucks uses a mixture of lemon concentrate, lemon juice, lemon oil, water, and sugar in their lemonades. You can try and recreate this in the comfort of your own home or just use storebought like I did because sometimes you want something quickly!
Can I make this drink without the lemonade?
Absolutely! If you don’t want the lemonade in your drink, or just don’t have it and don’t want to go out to grab some use a half-and-half mixture of extra green tea and extra peach juice to make up for the lack of lemonade. This way you’ll have a DIY Starbucks recipe for the peach green tea instead.
What should I do if I want my peach green tea lemonade sweeter?
If you don’t think it is sweet enough and needs a little bit more of a kick, you can always add a touch of simple syrup. Make sure to start with just a little bit and increase if needed to adjust the sweetness to your liking.
How to make homemade simple syrup?
- Mix ½ cup of granulated sugar and ½ cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and stir until the sugar dissolves.
