    Who likes cha yen/thai iced tea?

    Along with a foot massage, a Thai iced tea is one of those daily rituals. Unfortunately it's loaded with sugar, but I usually get them to tone it down. Anyway I found this video which appears to be the real deal so thought I'd share.



    BTW I should mention that the tea brand featured here 'Number One Brand' contains food coloring. Get yourself some Ceylon tea instead as that's what's used in the original Thai iced tea.

    Yeah...the sugar is a killer in those...and I am not a fan of condensed milk in tea...I much prefer it black

    I like quite a few flavours in the standard Dilmah "fruit" tea range...I just steep those in boiling water and have them either hot or let them cool down then put them in the fridge until really cool then add a few ice cubes when i want to have a nice cold refreshing bevvy...no sugar needed for me but the "fruit" flavours are are additives...so I guess not 100% natural...

    still..its hard to find a tasty 100% natural drink that is not water...even freshly squeezed fruit juices are choc full of sugar...fructose at least, rather than refined, but still too intense in sugar to have apart from the odd small treat

    Am I the only one here who loves it? Actually I called it thai iced tea but I've seen it in other Asian countries too referred to as "Teh ice". Same stuff.

    The iced tea we get over here is rubbish. Lipton's ready made shyte.

    As soon as I get my bits through from amazon I'm going to experiment with just a bit of sugar 1st. Would rather not use condensed milk, even though it's yummy. When I was younger and my mum would be using some for cooking I'd eat that stuff by the spoonful. True story. 555

    Not really tea , but in Phuket I had a hot drink made with blue flowers , think they were blue pea or the Latin name Clitoris Ternatea ( hard to get your tongue around ... )

    Clitoria I think. Guessing that was an autocorrect typo.
