This Starbucks iced guava black tea copycat recipe tastes just like the original drink! A refreshing black iced tea with a tropical guava twist. You can also easily make the iced guava black tea lemonade version, which has some fresh lemonade added to complement the fruity guava.


  • 1 ⅓ cup black tea
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar 
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 ⅓ cup guava nectar
  • handful of ice


  1. Make the tea: Add the chilled tea, simple syrup and guava nectar to a glass filled with ice. Stir and serve.


  • White tea variations: Starbucks used to sell white tea versions of this drink (iced guava white tea). This is basically exactly the same drink but white tea is used instead of black tea. See the blog post for more details. 
  • How to make an iced black tea lemonade: Replace half the guava nectar with lemonade. Hold off adding the simple syrup until the end— if you are using a store bought lemonade, it may be sweet enough that you don’t need any extra sugar. 
  • Make it sugarless. This drink doesn’t need sugar. It actually tastes delicious without it. If you want to make it sugar free, leave out the simple syrup. 
  • Make a large batch of simple syrup. Instead of making just enough simple syrup for this recipe, you can make a large batch and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to several weeks. This will make it faster to prepare drinks later on.
