Many of you may indulge with a glass of Thai Ice Tea when eating at a Thai restaurant. It’s a spicy blend of strong black Asian tea, vanilla, and spices such as star anise, crushed tamarind, cardamom, and occasionally others. The tea is sweetened and then topped off with condensed milk or half and half. It’s a perfect complement to spicy food. Traditionally in restaurants, the tea is also a bright orange as food colors are added to most Thai tea mixes. The traditional tea restaurant style is packed with calories and additives.
