Servings 4


  • cups water divided
  • 4 each Tazo® Passion® tea bags
  • ¼ cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 4 inch piece lemongrass finely chopped
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • Ice to serve

Garnish: (optional)

  • Fresh lemon slices
  • Sprigs of fresh mint


  • Bring four cups water to a rapid boil in a teapot or saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea bags to steep for several minutes before discarding.
  • To prepare the infused simple syrup, combine a quarter cup water, sugar, lemongrass, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer to separate the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and set the remaining simple syrup aside to cool.
  • Combine the brewed tea, lemon juice, and remaining cup of water in a large pitcher. Add infused simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine.
  • To serve, fill four chilled glasses with ice before adding the sweetened iced tea mixture. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
