Want a refreshing, summery twist on iced tea? This mango passion tea from Chick-fil-A is a delicious copycat recipe that's perfect for enjoying on a hot day. This drink takes just a few basic ingredients, and a few minutes to assemble.
This drink contains only four simple ingredients: lemonade, unsweet tea, mango nectar, and passionfruit juice.
- Lemonade: Chick-fil-A is famous for their amazing lemonade, but it's super easy to make it at home! All you need is freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, and water.
- Passionfruit Juice: I like to use Welch's for this recipe.
- Mango Nectar: I like to use Goya for this recipe.
- Unsweet Tea: Unsweet tea is simply brewed black tea without any sweeteners added. There's no need to use sweet tea for this recipe, since there's plenty of sweetness coming from the fruit juices.
- Peach Passion: use peach nectar instead of mango nectar.
- Tropical: use half mango nectar and half pineapple juice.
- Use a flavored black tea, like ginger peach.
How to Make
Let's start by making the unsweet tea. Boil 8 cups of water, pour it over 2 family-sized black tea bags, and let it steep for 6-8 minutes. Remove the bags and let it chill until you're ready for it.
Now, let's make the homemade lemonade. Squeeze 1 cup of fresh lemon juice and grab 1 ½ cups of water and ½ cup of sugar.
Stir the sugar and water with the lemon juice until the sugar has dissolved. You should end up with 2 ⅔ cups of lemonade.
Now, we're ready to assemble the drink! You'll need mango nectar, passionfruit juice, unsweet tea, and homemade lemonade.
Start by pouring ½ cup of unsweet tea into a 15-ounce glass.
Top it up with ½ cup each of passionfruit juice and mango nectar. Follow that with ¼ cup of lemonade.
Stir the drink until everything is well combined.
Garnish the drink with a lemon wheel and a paper straw. Add some crushed ice if desired. Enjoy right away!
