Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea Recipe – Make Your Own!

Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea

This week on the TODAY show, Jenna Bush Hager shared the Starbucks drink she swears by as her go-to whenever she has a cold. The Starbucks Medicine Ball used to be only on the secret, customer-created menu. But, due to its popularity, it was officially added to the menu in 2017. 

Ultimate Cold Buster Tea

You can get this ultimate cold buster drink at your local Starbucks by ordering a Honey Citrus Mint Tea, but if you’re not feeling up to heading out you can also make your own at home, as long as you have stocked up on the ingredients ahead of time – or you arrange a quick grocery delivery. 

Teavana Peach Tranquility Tea

The good think about this hot and comforting drink is that it tastes really good! The key to making it just like the in-Starbucks version is using Teavana tea sachets. The soothing part comes from the combination of the calming chamomile from the herbal Peach Tranquility and the invigorating citrus of the Jade Citrus Mint green tea.

Teavana Jade Citrus Mint

Adding in lemonade and honey gives this tea its finishing touch. You can use any type of lemonade you like, but my favorite is Simply Balanced organic lemonade from Target. Another good option is Simply Lemonade. They’re both very good!

To make Medicine Ball tea at home, we start with a large tea cup. You can play around with the proportions a bit, but this recipe makes enough to fill a 12 oz mug to the top. Here’s the recipe…
