Updated June 1, 2021

With more than 170,000 ways to customize beverages at Starbucks stores, customers have several options to find a refreshing iced tea that fits their lifestyle and taste preferences. Starbucks offers a variety of iced teas including black, chai, green and passion tango options, all deliciously hydrating just in time for National Iced Tea Month in June, National Iced Tea Day (June 10) or any warm summer day.

As always, there are several convenient ways to order Starbucks new summer menu. Customers can use the Starbucks app to locate a store, view store hours, order ahead and use contactless payment, as well as determine the most convenient available pick-up option, including: in-store, at the door, drive-thru, and curbside pickup where available. Those looking for Starbucks® coffee without leaving home can place an order for delivery through Starbucks® Delivers via Uber Eats (check the Uber Eats app for availability and restrictions).

Here are a few ways to customize your iced teas at Starbucks all summer:

Adjust the sweetness

Starbucks iced teas are now made unsweetened as part of the standard recipe (starting at 0g sugar and 0 calories for black, green and passion teas). Customers can select the level of sweetness by adjusting the pumps of cane sugar at no additional charge. To customize the level of sweetness when ordering iced tea beverages in the Starbucks app, customers can select “sweeteners” within the beverage recipe page to select a sweetener substitute such as honey, SPLENDA®, Stevia in the Raw®, Sugar or Sugar in the Raw®.

Add a splash of lemonade

Take your iced tea up a notch with lemonade! Ask your barista to top off any iced tea beverage with a splash of lemonade for a subtle burst of flavor or make it an iced tea lemonade for a bolder beverage (additional charge applies).

Go for a creamy tea latte 

Milk and tea are a deliciously creamy combo to enjoy all summer long. Try one of Starbucks iced teas with milk, like the Iced Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte, Iced London Fog Tea Latte, Iced Chai Tea Latte or Iced Matcha Tea Latte for a refreshing, classic flavor experience, and customize with the milk or non-dairy milk of your choosing. 

Bring the tea experience home

For those looking to stay cool at home, find Teavana tea sachets down the grocery aisle and brew any of your favorite flavors iced by using two sachets for every 8 fl. oz. of water – we suggest bright, fruit-forward flavors like Beach Bellini, Mandarin Mimosa or Peach Tranquility.
