20+ Loaded Teas You Don’t Want to Miss

Loaded teas are one craze I just can’t get over!

And no, I’m not talking about bubble tea or boba. Instead, they’re carefully crafted recipes that’ll boost your energy, focus, and metabolism.

You can find the ingredients at your local grocery store. And making a big batch is a breeze.

So go ahead and grab a pitcher because it’s time to make some deliciously loaded teas.

1. Homemade Loaded Tea

Raid your pantry for some simple ingredients to add to a glass of iced tea!

Turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and lemon perfectly accompany iced green tea.

If you want the beautiful purple ombre, butterfly tea makes the magic happen.

Boil the tea with herbs and spices, then sweeten to taste. Allow the tea to cool, and serve it in a glass over ice. 

2. Classic Loaded Tea

Ditch the morning coffee and sip on a cup of hot loaded tea instead! It’s a great way to start your day with a burst of energy.

Start by boiling water, then add in fresh ginger, peaches, and cloves.

Simmer the tea for 5 minutes, then stir in honey and lemon juice. 

This recipe is for hot tea, but can be cooled and drunk over ice, too! Serve it with fresh peach slices for extra flavor. 

3. Bahama Mama

This loaded tea has flavors of orange, pineapple, and guarana all in the mix.

With pre-made drink mixes, it has lots of antioxidants and vitamins for optimal energy.

You need a few drink mixes to make this loaded tea.

Orange Energy Rush, pineapple drink mix, guarana powder, and Sonic Cherry Limeade are all required.

Mix that all together with green tea, and top it off with aloe vera juice.

In just a few steps, you’ll be sipping on a fruity tropical drink!

4. Peach Green Tea

Loaded tea is essentially infused tea, and this tea is bursting with peach flavor.

And you’re only 5 ingredients away from sipping on it.

Green tea, fresh ginger, and peaches make up the bulk of the fruity flavor.

Sweeten this loaded tea with honey and add some acidity with fresh lemon juice. 

Enjoy it hot, or you can also serve it cold over ice!

5. Witch Please Loaded Tea 

If the punny title doesn’t draw you in, then maybe the spooky colors will!

Or, at the very least the yummy watermelon, grape, and orange combination of flavors.

This vibrant loaded tea has several drink mixes involved, along with black tea and aloe vera.

Most can be found at your local supermarket or ordered online.

Enjoy this delicious tea any day of the year, or serve it up at a Halloween party!

6. Red Rock Loaded Tea

Sweet and simple loaded teas don’t have to be loaded with sugar to be delicious.

With the right drink mixes in hand, you can enjoy a berry-licious loaded tea at home.

This loaded tea has four drink mixes for a berry, pineapple, and white grape flavor.

Layer the raspberry, pineapple, and guarana tea in the bottom, and top with the white grape drink.

This loaded tea will have you full of energy and is good to the last drop!

7. Pink Starburst

Okay, so I know that you could totally just use pink Starburst drink mix for this.

But then it wouldn’t be loaded with all of the extra goodies!

The Healthwise wild berry drink mix is full of protein and vitamins for your metabolism.

Pair that with strawberry lemonade and pink Starburst drink mix, too!

If you want a fruity pink drink, this is the loaded tea for you!

8. Mango Margarita Loaded Tea

I am always down for mango anything. And this mango margarita loaded tea can’t be topped.

Sweet and sour makes this taste (almost) like a mango margarita. With Margaritaville drink mix and mango punch, you’re well on your way.

This loaded tea also has some green apple drink mix and mango green tea, too.

Finish it with aloe vera juice for the perfect 5-o’clock drink! 

9. CinnaPom Sangria

If I had to pick just one loaded tea on this list to make, this is it.

There’s just something about the combination of fruit and spices that’s amazing.

Much like a traditional glass of sangria, this loaded tea has spices and fruits in the mix.

A little bit of pomegranate and berry combined with cinnamon syrup is beyond delicious. 

To make this more like a traditional sangria, I like to serve it with sliced fruit.

Who doesn’t enjoy the beautiful oranges and lemons dancing in the pitcher?

10. Storm Chaser

Stormy skies won’t feel so blue with a loaded tea in hand!

It’s a delicious combination of blueberry and lemonade to fill your cup.

Hi-C makes a delicious blueberry drink mix that pairs perfectly with lemonade and green tea.

The added Orange Energy Rush, guarana powder, and aloe make this a wonderful drink.

If you prefer the flavor of blue raspberry to blueberry, use Starburst blue drink mix instead. 

11. Black Pearl

You’ll sip waves of happiness with this coastal and fruity loaded tea recipe!

Though Captain Jack may just be asking where the rum is, which might be a good addition.

This tea is darkened with black tea, berry Energy Rush, blue Hawaiian Punch, and grape drink mix.

Each of these ingredients creates a sweet berry drink, deep in color like the ocean.

Guarana powder is an optional additive for these drinks, if you want an extra bit of energy.

It won’t change the flavor, but it will add more energizing nutrients. 

12. Guava Melon Loaded Tea Fresher

If I could name this drink, I’d call it a melon berry blast. The vibrant fruit flavors are a blast in every sip!

With watermelon green tea, raspberry, and strawberry, this is one very fruity drink.

It has everything you need to get you through a long day!

13. Purple Haze

If you’re into lavender lemonade, give this purple haze a try.

Like many of these loaded teas, there are a few different additions to this recipe.

Wild Berry Punch and Citrus Energy Rush make this lavender lemonade all the better.

If you’re serving this drink for a party, consider layering it with butterfly tea for a stark purple contrast.

Your guests will rave over this drink for ages!

14. Mountain Dupe

Why fill up with sugar and additives when you can sip on a glass of mountain dupe instead?

The flavors in this drink somehow nearly mimic the same original Dew flavor.

Citrus Energy Rush makes up the majority of the drink.

Then a bit of green tea powder, orange Tang, and lemon lime drink mix finish it off. 

Serve over ice for that same cold and refreshing taste!

If you’re craving the bubbles, just replace the water with seltzer water.

15. The Night Shift

If you’ve ever worked a night shift, you know caffeine and vitamins are a must have.

This loaded tea is sure to keep you awake for those long evenings!

I love this recipe because it has a great classic tea flavor. That is, of course, alongside the raspberry and strawberry drink mixes!

For an extra touch of energy, add in guarana powder. It won’t change the flavor of your drink, but it can help keep you awake all night.

16. Watermelon Squeeze

This loaded tea has summer written all over it!

It tastes like all of your favorite watermelon candies in one energizing tea, but it’s way healthier.

Watermelon green tea and Crush watermelon drink mix both create the main flavor.

Berry Energy Rush and guarana give this tea the “loaded” benefits you want! 

17. Mexican Sunset

Much like the sunset, this drink has layers of color from the many ingredients. With every layer, there’s a new delicious flavor to enjoy!

The bottom layer is full of citrus and pineapple drink mix, then, it’s topped with cherry juice.

Of course, there are plenty of vitamins to boost your energy in this drink, too!

Top your sunset with a sprinkle of tajin for a little bit of extra Mexican flavor. 

18. Basic Witch

If being basic means I’m sipping on this loaded tea, then so be it! I suppose I’m basic for a strawberry, punch, and rainbow candy drink.

It’s amazing how creative loaded teas can get. You’ll love the combination of fruity flavors in this delicious drink.

I prefer to make this loaded tea with aloe vera juice for extra flavor, but water is fine, too.

19. Pineapple Wave Loaded Tea

The tropics are calling your name, and they aren’t too far away.

In fact, this loaded tea will transform your kitchen into an island!

Mix up pineapple green tea powder, then double the Energy Rush and strawberry mango drink mix.

Guarana powder gives it an extra energy boost, and aloe juice for antioxidants.

Who knew the tropics were full of so much goodness for energy, too?

20. Hippie Juice

If you’re craving a refreshing drink, look no further! This mind-freeing loaded tea is just the drink you need on a hot summer day.

It has some serious tropical inspiration with pina colada, pineapple, and orange flavors.

Stir in a bit of pink lemonade and watermelon drink mix for a real treat.

Sip on this delicious loaded tea and sway to the beat. You won’t be disappointed!

21. Bubble Yum

If you love the flavor of fruity bubble gum, this is the tea for you!

The combination of grape and pink Starburst drink mix tastes just like Bubble Yum!

The addition of Berry Energy Rush, black tea, and guarana powder make this drink so energizing. 

The recipe calls for wild berry aloe vera juice too, but the original will do, too.

It’s a sweet, simple, and great afternoon pick-me-up!

22. Sour Patch

Sour Patch does it right: a little sweet and a little sour!

This loaded tea has the combination of blue raspberry and lemonade in every sip. 

This recipe calls for black tea, which gives it a more traditional iced tea flavor.

If you prefer green tea, it also goes well with the other flavors.

With Citrus Energy Rush, lemonade, and blue raspberry drink mixes, this loaded tea is so easy!

23. Dragon’s Breath

Don’t let the name fool you, this drink isn’t fiery at all! But it’s as exotic and wild as a dragon itself. 

With fruity raspberry green tea and dragon fruit energy drink mix, it’s full of flavor.

Layer the tea mix, cactus juice, and top with Tropical Tepache de Pina drink mix. 

The best part is all of these drink mixes are available through the Great Value brand.

There’s no need to sip on expensive drinks with delicious loaded tea like this!
