Costco Tazo Iced Passion Tea is the same as you get from Starbucks! Delicious and refreshing!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco bought Tazo Iced Passion Tea, this is the same beverage they use at Starbucks in case you’re wondering! I was excited to see it at Costco because that means I can make a similar beverage to the one from Starbucks in the comfort of my own home for a fraction of the cost.
I found the passion tea on the side of the store near the front, it was beside the oat milk and almond milk. The item number is 1099979.
Two words that came to mind immediately when trying the passion tea are delicious and refreshing, in addition, it’s not very sweet at all or full of sugar which I appreciated. The Tazo Iced Passion Tea from Costco tastes more like a tea than a passion fruit drink, for instance, you can really taste strong hibiscus flower notes as well as orange, cinnamon, black pepper and ginger. The passion fruit flavor is more muted.
In conclusion, this tastes more like a refreshing cold herbal tea than a super-sweet fruity beverage. It goes amazingly well with lemonade or mango juice.
I paid $9.99 Canadian for a package of three 946 mL containers. This isn’t bad at all considering it’s a concentrate so you dilute it.
A Grande Iced Passion Tea from Starbucks will cost me $3.41 Canadian where I’m located so by buying your Tazo passion tea from Costco you’re saving a ton of money!
To prepare your iced passion tea you just shake the container and mix equal parts passion tea concentrate and water. You can also add lemonade, other fruit juices or even use the tea to make some fun cocktails! Anyone else think this might make a pretty awesome Cosmopolitan? To make the Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade you would mix the concentrate with lemonade and ice.
Once opened store in the refrigerator, the best before date on the tea concentrate I bought is about a year from the date I purchased it.
1/2 cup of passion tea concentrate is 20 calories, zero grams of fat, five milligrams of sodium, five grams of carbohydrates and five grams of sugar. Zero grams of protein and fibre.
This is surprisingly low in sugar for a concentrate! It also has ingredients that are straight-forward, therefore there’s no shocking questionable ingredients!
Give it a try!
If you’ve ever had the Starbucks Iced Passion Tea Lemonade or Tango and enjoyed this I recommend picking up this concentrate from Costco to make your own delicious, refreshing drinks at home for a fraction of the cost.
Do you have any unique ways to use this? Have you had it? What did you think?
