Thai Iced Tea

A sweet and refreshing homemade Thai Iced Tea recipe made with Thai tea mix, sugar, and cream. Add tapioca pearls to make easy bubble tea!

Jorge took me on one of our very early dates to a Thai restaurant.

It was my first time ever having Thai food and I had zero clue what anything was. 

We sat down and I scoured over the menu. We ordered drinks and he asked for a Thai Tea.

I figured it was a hot tea (which is soooo not my thing), so I went for the safe option of diet coke.

A few seconds later, the waitress returned with my diet coke and a neon orange iced drink for Jorge. ‘

He laughed at the face I was making and told me to just try it. After one highly sugared – neon orange sip, I was hooked.

It is now one of my absolute favorite things to have when we go for Thai.

Don’t tell Jorge, but I actually sometimes just ask to go have Thai food for the Thai Tea alone… ;-)

Luckily, you can also make it at home if you can get your hands on some Thai Tea Mix.

You can usually find it at an Asian market or you could always order it online from amazon.

Some people say you can use a strong black tea in place of it…but it doesn’t taste the same to me.

    The worst thing about living in the UK, was that not all Thai restaurants offered thai iced tea! One of the blessings of having to move back to the states, it’s so addictive!

    So I’m embarrassed to say that I have never tried Thai iced tea. I feel like I am seriously missing out on lifeQ

    I tried Chai tea for the first time a few days ago, and it tasted too sugary for me. Is this thai tea as sweet as the chai? The photo is so beautiful!

    I tried Thai iced tea for the first time a few weeks ago. I’m not kidding when I say this: I am a changed woman.

    I’m so excited you posted this! I was just telling my husband about this tea the other day. I’m running out to get the ingredients ASAP. Thank you so much.
