Recipe 12/50 : Thailand : Thai Iced Tea

If you've been to a Thai restaurant, you know this delicious beverage. Its strong in taste, yet sweet and very tasty. My hubby just loves this. The first thing in our menu when we go to Thai place is Thai Iced Tea. This recipes calls for Thai tea, which I found it very difficult to find, since the place where I stay doesn't have Asian store near by.So, I had to travel 40 miles to find a nearest Asian store.

I did little research later and came to know that these people have good quality that tea.
