It's really no secret that I have a Starbucks VentiShakenBlackIcedTeaWithThreePumpsOfClassic problem.
That $2.82 every.single.day. is starting to wear a pretty big hole in my pocket. I also have this fear that when we move to South Carolina, there won't be a Starbucks on my way to work #firstworldproblems. For these reasons, I decided to spend last week perfecting my own Starbucks-inspired iced tea, and I think I've got it! The best part is it only costs about 40 cents per cup!
2. Steep 2 teabags in a small coffee cup of hot water for 5 minutes.
3. Pour hot tea over ice to the top black line on the Starbucks cup.
4. Dissolve sugar in a little more hot water in small cup. I hate sugar crystals at the bottom of iced tea, and this works really well! [I've found that each sugar packet is about a pump of classic syrup at Starbucks.]
5. Add sugar syrup to tea and fill the rest of the way with water!
