Starbucks Copycat Recipe

Starbucks Medicine Ball

Make it like Starbucks!

This Starbucks Medicine Ball AKA Honey Citrus Mint Tea is so easy to recreate at home with a few simple ingredients. It's soothing, sweet, & delicious, just like the one you get at Starbucks!

What is the Medicine Ball?

The Medicine Ball is a fun name for the Honey Citrus Mint Tea on the  Starbucks menu. It's made with citrus green tea, peach, tea, lemonade, & honey. People call it the "Medicine Ball" because they claim it can cure a cold. But this is, of course, not proven. It is delicious & soothing, but because of the lemonade & honey, it does have quite a bit of sugar in it!
