I make my way through Target picking up the miscellaneous crap I need...pay...and then go to the Starbucks counter. The barista chick is messing with something and says in a snotty voice "We're closed."
SERIOUSLY, WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU CLOSE A STARBUCKS IN THE MIDDLE OF A TARGET ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON?!
I turned around and walked back to the tea aisle and got a box of passion tea bags made specially for making iced tea (they probably are double strength - they're bigger than normal though, each one makes 2 quarts.
On the back there's a recipe for the passion tea lemonade. While this doesn't taste 100% exactly like the real deal It's fairly close. I hear if you use Simply Lemonade, it tastes closer. However, I have a perfectly good can of Country Time pink lemonade mix rotting on the kitchen counter, so I used that.

So what you do is boil a quart (4 cups) of water. Place tea bag in a sauce pan or similar type container and pour the boiling water in. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.
|Steeping away. PS: Passion Tea smells awesome when it's brewing.|
When the tea is sufficiently cold, do your best to refrain from drinking the entire pitcher in an hour ;)
|I don't have a reusable cold cup, so a plain old glass for me, mmkay?|
Voila, this is not by any means some super secret recipe. It's on the box of tea bags :)
