Guava white tea lemonade may be the most exciting drink you try all year.
Lemonade may be the most popular drink of the summer. Or maybe iced tea is what people drink the most in the hot months. If you can’t decide between a big glass of lemonade or a iced cold tea, why not drink them both? You can’t go wrong with a lemonade iced tea! Especially when that iced tea lemonade is guava flavored.
Copycat White Tea Guava Lemonade
We have to admit that we were not the first ones to have the idea to make guava white tea lemonade. In fact, Starbucks is the one who popularized this tasty drink. Rather than pay tons of money to buy this tasty drink every day, we decided to make it on our own instead.
Starbucks guava white tea is made with a blend of white teas, guava flavored juice, and sugar. While this mix is certainly tasty, we wanted to make an even better blend. Something that was free from “natural flavors” and preservatives. We also love the idea of adding lemonade to the mix.
What’s in Guava White Tea Lemonade
We tried to keep our guava white tea lemonade recipe as clean and pure as possible. Simple ingredients is always the way to go! Here is what we use in our white tea guava lemonade recipe:
- White tea
- Guava Juice
- Fresh lemon juice
You can find guava juice in most grocery stores. It is often in the aisle with Mexican foods. It should be right on the shelf along with mango juice and tamarind juice (both delicious, by the way).
You may be able to find guava juice alongside the fruit juices in the store as well.
Give the guava juice a taste before you make our white tea guava lemonade. If the juice is overly sweet, skip the sugar in our recipe.
Some guava juices are quite saccharine and do not need extra sugar.
