Starbucks Brews for the Witch on-the-go

Disclaimer: No, I don’t work for Starbucks. Also, no, no one is paying me to write this.

Everyone knows modern life has a way of sneaking up on you, so what’s a witch to do when you’re out and need an extra magical boost? Honestly, if you happen to go Starbucks a lot–you can make simple brews to help yourself out!

Also, these brews are super helpful if you’re a closeted witch and you’re looking for other ways to flex your craft without drawing to much attention to yourself.

☽Study Boost/Get Shit Done Spell☾

  • Your favorite type of Coffee, OR  Black Tea, (English Breakfast tea, Earl Grey tea) OR Green Tea ( Emperor’s Cloud and Mist or Green Tea Latte)
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg

Once you get your drink order, go the condiment bar and mix some cinnamon and nutmeg into your drink. Stir clockwise while envisioning you completing a task you really need done and say in your mind : “I will [insert what you want to do], I will get the task done! So mote it be!”

Coffee and tea are known as stimulants. Cinnamon is good for success and is a “fiery” spice–so you get you the boost you need. Nutmeg enhances the properties of cinnamon. This spell can also be done with iced drinks.

☽Self Love Spell☾

  • Passion Tango Tea
  • Vanilla powder
  • Honey

Grab your drink order, go the condiment bar and mix some Vanilla bean powder into your drink. Stir clockwise while envisioning filling yourself with love, “I know in my heart am worthy of love, I give the gift of Love to myself. So mote it be!” Once your done add a little honey!

Passion tea actually has hibiscus, cinnamon and rose hips which are normally used in love spells. The addition of the vanilla bean and honey enhances the love effect of the drink.

☽Calm yourself Spell☾

  • Peach Tranquility* OR Calm Chamomile* OR one of their Mint teas (Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea or Mint Majesty)
  • Honey
  •  Milk

Grab your drink order, go the condiment bar and mix in some Honey and a splash of your favorite Milk. Stir clockwise while taking a deeeep breath, envisioning yourself feeling calm and say in your mind “I feel calm, may this feeling of peace wash over me! So mote it be!”

Peach Tranquility/Calm Chamomile has well…Chamomile in it, which is known to soothe nerves. If you’re not a fan of Chamomile, mint has soothing properties that work great for this spell.

*= please do not drink Chamomile if you’re driving.

There you go! I hope these brews help out some people whilst they’re out in public and are in need of some witchy assistance.   

Holy heaven above ! ! ! This tea is called the “medicine ball” aka a creation on the “secret” Starbucks menu! If you have a sore throat/cold I HIGHLY recommend; this was exactly what Josh & I needed after feeling crappy all week 🙌🏻☕️

The “medicine ball” contains:
1 jade citrus mint tea bag
1 peach tranquility tea bag
½ water ½ steamed lemonade
+ honey!

Headcanons on what the GoM+ Kagami would order from a coffee shop depending on the season (minus Kuroko because it's obvs XD)

these are all off of the starbuck’s menu bc……. yeah. Some of these drinks may not be available in your country. Or mine. But they exist. 

Disclaimer: i have no idea what i’m talking about throughout the whole thing. I drink one drink only. No matter the season. Sometimes I mix it up with the iced version of the drink. 


Winter: Toffee Nut Latte (he likes the crunchy bits)

Spring: Iced Vanilla Latte (it’s cold with a little bit of caffeine to it, so he’s fully energized to start practicing basketball in the morning. Really wakes him up). 

Summer: Hazlenut Frappuccino (He loves the taste, and it’s cold. It’s perfect. So simple, yet so effective). 

Fall: Mocha Frappuccino (he has a lot of body heat, so the cold drink doesn’t bother him. Plus it tastes yummy. What more reason does he need?)


Winter: Peppermint Mocha (it makes him feel christmas-sy. After drinking some he goes and wraps himself in christmas lights. He’s very into christmas)

Spring: Green Tea Creme Frappuccino (it’s such a nice spring green colour. Also since it’s warmer he can break out the colder drinks)

Summer: Orange Mango Smoothie (do they have smoothies in coffee shops? Starbucks does. Anyway, he likes to think that it’s refreshing and just the slightest bit healthier than coffee). 

Fall: Pumpkin Spiced Latte (because obviously??)


Winter: Eggnog Latte (Midorima likes to stay traditional during Christmas. So eggnog.)

Spring: Earl Grey Tea (the changing seasons mess up his immune system, so he needs to drink a lot of tea so as not to feel like death)

Summer: Iced Tea (they don’t carry that red bean soup in coffee shops, right? so iced tea is his summer go to)

Fall: Toasted Graham Latte (It makes him feel cozy… don’t laugh)


Winter: Gingerbread Latte (not too sweet, but very flavourful. Like him. Plus Aomine is secretly really into christmas)

Spring: Iced Cappuccino (he likes cappuccinos. But this one is cold. Amazing)

Summer: Iced Cappuccino (he doesn’t bother with change)

Fall: Cappuccino (It’s a really straightforward drink. He can’t remember all the complicated names)


Winter: Christmas Cookie Latte (Liquefied cookies? Sign him the fuck up)

Spring: Double Chocolately Chip Creme Frappuccino (double the chocolate chips? yes please)

Summer: Caramel Frappuccino with two pumps of chocolate and some vanilla bean sauce (summer is when he experiments. He just lists a bunch of random things from the menu and sees what he ends up with)

Fall: Caramel Macchiato (it’s warm and sweet. Like him)


Winter: Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate (It’s soothing. And warm. Don’t question his decisions)

Spring: Jade Citrus Mint Iced Tea (It has a distinct spring freshness about it that really appeals to him)

Summer: Shaken Ice Black Tea (It’s cold and flavourful. It gets the job done). 

Fall: Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino (the cinnamon makes him feel very “fall”. It calms down his urge to go lay in a pile of leaves)




Made some hot tea since it’s cold and rainy tonight. 

For any Teavana fans out there, I used to work at one and this was a popular blend for those who caught a cold or just wanted something soothing to drink at night. Mind you, I make 16oz cups of tea but if you’d like less, just cut the portions in half.

Jade Citrus Mint & Citrus Lavender Sage

  • a tea maker or something with a filter to strain the tea from the loose leaves
  • hot water 175° F (if it’s too hot to drink, it’s to hot to steep tea)
  • 1-2 tsp of German Rock Sugar (if you like it sweetened)
  • 3 tsp Citrus Lavender Sage herbal tea
  • 3 tsp Jade Citrus Mint green tea
  • steep for 2 minutes and remove tea leaves promptly 
  • enjoy
