Brief History Of The Berry Hibiscus Passion Tea

Although Starbucks introduced the Very Berry Hibiscus refresher in 2012, and the Iced Passion Tea has been around for some time, the Berry Hibiscus Passion Tea has not been a trendy secret menu item, with just a few of us who seem to be interested in it. Removing the Very Berry Hibiscus refresher from the Starbucks menu in 2021 means the end of this tea, at least at Starbucks.

Is the Berry Hibiscus Passion Tea still available at Starbucks?

No, the Berry Hibiscus Passion Teas are no longer available at Starbucks since the company discontinued the berry hibiscus refresher, a crucial component in 2021.

Ingredients

What’s in the Berry Hibiscus Passion Tea? This tea consists of Passion Iced Tea and the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher with light ice.

  • Passion Iced Tea is an infusion of water, citric acid, hibiscus flowers, natural flavors, licorice root, cinnamon, lemongrass, apple, fruit juice extract, and ice. I make this by pouring 8 ounces of boiling water on a Tazo Passion tea bag and letting it steep for 5 minutes. I then pour the brewed tea over a cup of ice.
  • Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher: this Starbucks refresher had a berry refresher base, ice, and freeze-dried blackberries. You can make the base using store-bought white grape juice concentrate, citric acid, and green coffee extract. Add freeze-dried blackberries, all from Walmart.

What Sizes Are Available?

Starbucks serves tea in different cup options, including a tall size (12 ounces), a grande size (16-ounce), a venti size (24 ounces), or a Trenta size (30 ounces) cup.
