If you’ve ever wanted to make peaches a part of your Starbucks experience, you’re in luck. The well-known coffee franchise has several peach-infused items for the fruit’s biggest fans. We’ve compiled a list of them — 11, to be exact — for you to turn to the next time your day could use some fruity flavor.
What’s So Great About Peaches, Anyway?
Juicy peaches have more to offer than delicious flavor. According to the Cleveland Clinic, the yellowish-orange stone fruit (that means they have a stone-like pit in their centers) also has a host of nutritional and health payoffs.
Besides being packed with vitamins and minerals like vitamins A and C and potassium, peaches are also linked to heart health, improved digestion, decreased inflammation, strong immune systems, and more.
So, when you eat peaches by themselves, add them to dishes, or blend their juice into your favorite Starbucks drink, you’re doing more than enjoying their sweetness; you’re reaping the fruit’s many benefits!
Roasty Roundup: The Best Must-Try Peach Drinks at Starbucks
Regular Menu Items Packed With Peach
The Starbucks peach drinks listed below hold spots on the store’s regular menu. Though peach seems like a summery flavor, you can order these peachy treats year-round. Sorry, java fanatics. You won’t find any cups of coffee on our list.
The caffeine-free herbal Peach Tranquility Tea probably comes to mind first when someone mentions peach drinks at Starbucks.
The sweet, fruity tea blends peaches with candied pineapple, chamomile blossoms, lemon verbena, and rosehips. The beverage’s flavor is distinct enough to stand alone, but if you want an extra-sweet treat, you can add a bit of honey blend to your cup.
Honey Citrus Mint Tea
You probably know this delicious drink by its secret menu name, the Medicine Ball. When the folks at Starbucks added the customer favorite to the permanent menu, they changed its name to Honey Citrus Mint Tea. But the recipe — Jade Citrus Mint and Peach Tranquility teas steeped in hot water, steamed lemonade, and a few pumps of honey blend — remained the same.
Customers trust the warm, cozy drink to soothe sore throats and kick their immune systems into high gear during cold and flu season. But you don’t have to be sick to treat yourself to the Honey Citrus Mint Tea; try it the next time you want something less caffeinated than your usual latte.
Iced Peach Green Tea
Starbucks’s next peach option is the Iced Peach Green Tea. This drink brings minty green tea, sweet peach juice blend, and approximately 25 milligrams of caffeine* to your cup — sounds like it could be the most refreshing part of your day, right?
Another Starbucks peach beverage is this drink’s close relative, the Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade. It’s got the same flavors as the plain peach-flavored green tea, except adding lemonade gives it a citrusy twist.
*This measurement comes from a Grande (16-ounce) serving. Anything smaller has a lower caffeine content, while a larger quantity of tea has higher caffeine levels.
Teavana Sparkling Unsweetened Peach Nectarine Green Tea
Not every Starbucks location has bottled tea, but some do. Teavana’s Sparkling Unsweetened Peach Nectarine Green Tea is one of them.
This drink is on the healthier side of the spectrum, as it’s sugar-free. But that doesn’t mean flavor-free. You can still taste green tea, peach juice, and nectarine juice. It’s also carbonated; the fizzy bubbles in the bottle make it pretty to look at while offering extra refreshment.
Peachy Secret Menu Recipes
Now, we move on to Starbucks Coffee’s secret menu peach drinks. These concoctions came from the minds of the franchise’s clever customers, so you won’t find them listed anywhere at your local store. You must list each ingredient to the barista when you order one.
Iced Peach Black Tea
The plain Iced Black Tea is a permanent menu fixture at Starbucks. However, this variation of it is not. Peach lovers can enjoy this item by ordering the Iced Black Tea with peach juice blend.
While the recipe is simple, the drink is far from meh. Classic black tea plays well with peach flavors, and serving the mixture over ice makes it more refreshing and energizing.
Iced Peach Black Tea Lemonade
Iced Peach Black Tea Lemonade is another secret menu item. The drink is very similar to the Iced Peach Black Tea, except it contains a splash of lemonade. That additional ingredient adds a bright citrus kick and extra sweetness to the tea.
Lemonade gives us all the vacation vibes, so stop by Starbucks for one of these lemon-loaded teas before hitting the road for a vacation or lounging by the pool all day.
Fuzzy Peach Refresher
Next up is the Fuzzy Peach Refresher. The drink’s pretty pink hue gives us all the springtime vibes. Peach-loving Starbucks fans raved over this drink when it made its rounds on social media in 2021; see for yourself if it lives up to the hype.
Order this ice-cold treat by asking for a Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher with no water or inclusions. Then, have the barista add a combination of peach juice, a few pumps of vanilla syrup, and a splash of coconut milk to the cup.
Peach Apple Lemonade
We like Starbucks because the iconic coffee house chain serves more than just coffee drinks. Items like the Peach Apple Lemonade give customers some variety.
This drink is a decaffeinated peach sensation — even the kiddos can sip it! — made of lemonade, apple juice, and peach juice blend. Putting these ingredients together creates a sweet, refreshing drink you can order any time without worrying that it’ll keep you up at night.
Peach Cobbler Avalanche Frappuccino
When a massive hankering for homemade peach cobbler hits but baking is the last thing on your mind, turn to the Peach Cobbler Avalanche Frappuccino.
Ask for a Vanilla Bean Créme Frappuccino with peach juice and a few pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup blended into it. Have the barista top it off with whipped cream and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon; the topping adds to the drink’s dessert-like effect and goes the extra mile to satisfy your peach cobbler craving.
Peaches and Cream Frappuccino
The Peaches and Cream Frappuccino is part of Starbucks’s nearly endless secret menu of peach drink options. It only has two ingredients, and we bet you can guess what they are.
Yep. Peaches and cream — well, peach juice blend and the creme-based Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. The creamy, peachy drink is worth adding to your “Must-Try Beverage” list. Since there’s no coffee or caffeine in the mix, having one is like drinking a peach smoothie or milkshake.
Le Peach Frappuccino
Starbucks Coffee’s Le Peach Frappuccino is like the Peaches and Cream and Peach Cobbler Avalanche Frappuccinos above. However, it contains hazelnut syrup, and that ingredient shakes the drink up a bit.
The nutty syrup’s bold flavor complements the blend of peach juice, Frappuccino creme base, and vanilla bean powder well. The recipe also calls for a few pumps of vanilla syrup that lend extra sweetness to the drink and help curb particularly strong sugar cravings. Topped with whipped cream and cinnamon, the Le Peach Frappuccino is a popular secret menu pick among peach-loving Starbucks customers.
Frequently Asked Questions
It’s time for a peachy Q&A! Here’s more information about Starbucks Coffee’s peach drink options.
Does Starbucks Have Peach Juice or Peach Syrup?
Past Starbucks recipes called for a few pumps of simple syrup to add peach flavoring to a beverage, but the company discontinued peach and mango syrups in 2017. Nowadays, the international coffeehouse chain relies on a peach juice blend to flavor beverages.
What Brand of Peach Tea Does Starbucks Use?
Every tea Starbucks Coffee sells, including those packed with peachy flavors, comes from Teavana. However, that wasn’t always the case. Before that, Starbucks exclusively used Tazo tea. But Teavana tea made its way onto the stores’ menus in 2012 when the Seattle-born coffee giant acquired the company in late 2012.
Starbucks sold both Teavana and Tazo teas for the next five years, and in 2017, the brand announced it would begin a single-tea strategy. Starbucks sold Tazo to Unilever and shifted all its attention to Teavana, where it remains.
Where Can You Buy Starbucks Peach Juice Blend?
Nowadays, Starbucks Coffee uses a dash of peach juice blend to imitate the taste of ripe peaches in its beverages. Unfortunately for anyone trying to perfect a peachy copycat recipe, the coffee giant doesn’t keep extra peach juice around to sell to customers, and you can’t find it for sale online.
Your best bet at bringing the taste of peaches into your homemade concoctions is to add a few pumps of peach syrup made by brands like Monin or Torani. The result won’t taste exactly like something from Starbucks, but you’ll still get the hints of peach you’re looking for.
Fulfill Your Peach Fantasies at Starbucks
Starbucks has no shortage of delicious drink recipes made with a splash of peach juice blend, from peach tea drinks to peachy Frappuccinos. Order one of the beverages above to curb your cravings for peaches and Starbucks at the same time.
