Thai Tea

The notorious orange-colored tea-based beverage that is served in many Thai and bubble tea restaurants is Thai Tea.

 

What is Thai Tea?
Thai tea is known as a drink that combines brewed tea, milk, and sugar over ice. The tea leaves used are typically a black tea leaf blend with other ingredients that give Thai tea its signature color.

 

Color and Flavor
Thai tea has earthy undertones but is always served with sweetener which gives it a sweeter taste to other tea drinks. The brewed tea alone is a deep red color but when combined with condensed milk (or regular milk).
