Art of making Thai Iced Tea

I am obsessed with Thai Iced Tea and I think it’s more to do with the flavor. They have a distinct flavor which I love and it is also very addictive. I always get these in Thai restaurants, Though I love it, I still don’t like the sugary taste of it since they do add a lot of sugar. So I decided to try it at home. I researched online and found that Pantai Thai Tea is a good brand to use. I found them on Amazon and it as like $7 so I decided to see if I could find it in Asian Market. And I did find it from our nearest Asian Market and it was $3.99 and I was like :yay: and I was so freaking happy I found it.

When I opened the package the first thing which I noticed is the smell. It smells flowery but I just can’t hit on the exact smells. After lot of research (yes, I wasted my time doing it), I found that they add Dok Nom Maew which is a flower found in Thailand. But today they add artificial flavoring which taste like that. Also a thing to keep in mind is that it has food coloring which gives it a distinct orange color tea. Personally, I don’t mind it. I did find a recipe but I did find it too sweet. So with trial and errors I finally found a recipe which works for me 🙂 .
