Ingredients to Make Starbucks Medicine Ball
- Teavana Peach Tranquility Tea
- Teavana Jade Citrus Mint
- Peppermint extract or Peppermint Vitality (optional)

- If you like mint, definitely add the peppermint extract! It’s such a nice and refreshing taste!
- The sliced lemon is also a good addition and sometimes I even squeeze a bit more of the lemon juice into the drink as well.
How to Make Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea
Add the water and lemonade to a microwave safe bowl and place it in the microwave and heat until hot.
Put the tea bags into a mug and pour the hot water/lemonade mixture over the top.
Let the tea bags steep for about 3 minutes or so.
Take the tea bags out of the mug and stir in the honey. This is also a good time to add the peppermint extract, if you’re choosing to use it.
Add a slice of lemon for more lemon flavor and enjoy.
You’ll find a lot of ingredients that many people take when they feel a head cold coming on. This is why the tea has been named “medicine ball”. There isn’t really any type of medicine in it, but good ingredients that are synonymous with people taking them when they have a cold.
It just might. The flavors of the mint and lemon can help with clearing out the sinus area and the added honey is great for soothing a sore throat.
Since there isn’t anything medicinal in this tea, you should be able to drink it as often as you want. This is especially true if you have a head cold or sore throat.
How to Reheat Medicine Ball Tea
If you make this tea and it happens to cool down before you’re able to eat it, no worries!
Just heat it for a bit in the microwave for a bit and it’ll be good to go.
Make sure to give it a good stir after you reheat and be careful with taking your first sip as it’s going to be hot.
