How to Order Tea Like a Pro at Starbucks

When ordering espresso beverages at Starbucks, most customers know exactly what they want such as "a grandé, quad, nonfat, one-pump, no-whip mocha." But many customers don't realize they can personalize tea beverages too. 

Here are some tips from Starbucks baristas on customizing iced tea, and ordering like a pro. 

To begin, choose a Black, Green, or Passion Tango™ iced tea. Each iced tea is handcrafted and shaken 10 times to bring out the delicious taste in every perfectly chilled cup. Teavana® Shaken Green and Teavana Shaken Black teas may be ordered sweetened or unsweetened for a delicious and refreshing zero-calorie beverage any time of day.


Iced Tea Meets Lemonade

Try pairing your favorite iced tea with lemonade. Made with Teavana Black Tea, Mango Syrup and a hint of sweet passion fruit, the new Teavana® Shaken Iced Mango Black Tea, when shaken with lemonade, is perfect for summer all-day refreshment.

Just Add Juice

Combining Teavana® Shaken Iced Passion Tango™ Tea with apple juice delivers juicy, thirst-quenching refreshment accented by the tartness of apple.
