Passion-Fruit Lemonade Tea

It is now less than three weeks until the start of Fall. Summer has seemed to go by so quickly! Whereas I am looking forward to harvest-time very much, I'm also hoping to enjoy the last few weeks of summertime to the fullest : )A beautiful hibiscus growing in my grandparent's backyard.

This is a very cool and refreshing way to enjoy what's left of the warm summer days. You can make this into a delicious tea-lemonade combo, or just an iced tea (in case you would like to omit the lemonade concentrate, as it is slightly less than healthy for you, haha!).

Passion-Fruit Lemonade Tea

Adapted from Meemos Kitchen
Makes 2 quarts

3 Tazo Passion Tea bags (or tea of choice)
3 cups water
1 can (12 oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate*

*If you would like to make this an iced tea instead of lemonade, just substitute 1/2 - 3/4 cup of sugar (or honey sucanat) for the concentrate.


In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Remove from heat. Steep tea bags for 5-15 minutes, till desired strength is reached.

Add lemonade concentrate and stir, (or add sugar, adjusting sugar to desired sweetness). Pour tea mixture into a 2 quart pitcher. Add enough water to bring total liquid amount to 2 quarts.

Chill minimum of 2-4 hours. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
