Thai Iced Tea

I really enjoy it. A new, nice Thai place opened in the new Wegmanns Shopping Center, I tried it at lunch last week, good food. Their Iced tea tasted like water, I sent it back, got a Sierra Mist. I was really disappointed as a good glass of Thai iced tea is hard to beat...your thoughts?

    Took me awhile to like it.  The color is the first thing about it that is a turn off to me.
     
    Thai iced coffee is my first pick, but when it's not available  I now order the Thai Iced Tea.
     
    Have you considered offering it with BBQ?  Great with Thai Barbecued Chicken.

    Kind of a pita to make correctly, and not inexpensive!

    I love to visit there..It is a drink made from strongly-brewed black tea. Other ingredients may include added orange blossom water etc.

    A good Thai tea is indeed hard to beat. It's one of my all-time favorite beverages, but it can be kind of easy to mess up if you're not careful with the sugar and cream. 
     
    If you're into Thai Tea and want to try your hand at making it at home, I recommend Wang Derm Thai Iced Tea bags. You can sometimes find them at World Market, but if your local brick-and-mortar store doesn't stock it, you can always buy a box or two through their website. Wang Derm's recipe is pretty tasty, and it's fairly inexpensive, which minimizes the risk involved in those inevitably lackluster first few batches while you figure out how much sweetener and sugar you like to use.
     
    I don't have any proportions worked out, which I guess isn't especially helpful, but I usually like to play it by ear and sweeten each serving depending on my mood at the time.

    The first time I ever tried Thai iced tea was in May 1988 in downtown San Francisco.  I won't ever forget it, either.  When the Chinese restaurant I was eating in brought me my drink, it looked like they scooped up the contents of the glass from a very dirty mud hole.  You could see the contents of the stuff swirling around in the glass.  I wondered what I had gotten myself into.  But once I took a sip, that was it!  That was some of the best stuff I ever put in my mouth.  Refreshing.  Gently sweet.  I think I've only had it once or twice since, but it was never as good as that first experience.
