Kasma's Traditional Thai Iced Tea Recipe
Thai iced tea, Cha Yen or Chaa Yen in Thai, is a popular drink widely available in small restaurants and street stalls in across Thailand. This simple and refreshing Iced Thai Tea recipe comes from Kasma Loha-Unchit, Thai cooking teacher and cookbook author.
Thai iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot summers day (see our latest blog post "Ice is Nice: Thai Iced Tea & Other Cool Drinks") or can be served hot as a delicious warming drink if the summer weather is not as warm and dry as you would like!
Pantainorasingh brand Thai Tea is a favorite among Thai foodies and cookbook writers like Kasma Loha-Unchit. Using top quality tea insures that you will get the most authentic and delicious Thai taste for your own brew. We also have it as part of a Thai Tea Kit which includes everything you need.
