  • Hi I actually am a former employee of Panera. I worked there for 5 years and truly know from experience. This is a good recipe but if you want to get Paneras unique green tea flavor your missing the flavor in which transforms the tea. It’s mango. That is not just green tea. It’s mango iced green tea, but for some reason the mango flavor is never mentioned . Try some mango juice and it will come closer to true Panera. Have a great day! Thanks for sharing!
