*Tazo tea bags contain the same spices and tea listed in the Starbucks concentrate.
**I use 1 TBSP of maple syrup or honey because I like to use natural sweetener in my drinks. If you prefer some sugar it is a great choice as well because it has a light flavour. 1 TbSP is quite sweet so youcan always start with half a TBSP and add more if you need it.
**Also I find 1 TBSP of maple syrup makes this drink sweet enough for my taste. It is great without any sweetener at all and often I have without the added sugar. For a more authentic Starbucks taste use 2 TBSP of maple syrup.
