Last month, we released our Organic and Fair Trade Certified Thai Iced Tea to celebrate National Iced Tea Month. It was a resounding success! We’ve received rave reviews and Thai Iced Tea has become our #1 selling tea. Our Thai Iced Tea is a blend of strong black tea and ground anise, vanilla bean and cardamom. By choosing to use ground spices, we’ve created a wonderfully spicy blend that can easily hold up to the addition of sweetened condensed milk to create a traditional restaurant-style Thai Iced Tea. However, many customers are surprised that our Thai Iced Tea blend is delicious simply on its own.
One customer exclaimed: “ …it is so delicious it doesn’t even need all that other stuff [dairy and sugar]!”
Plus, NO artificial colors or flavors! Did you know that the deep orange color of Thai Iced Tea served in restaurants is usually attributed to artificial coloring? Well, no longer! We’ve developed an organic tea blend that includes no artificial colors or flavors. As a result, when dairy is added to this iced tea it will not turn orange, but a beautiful, natural light brown!
Thai Tea Parfait and Thai Bubble Tea. Our Thai Iced Tea has been so popular that it has inspired other creations! Olivia May at From the Kitchen of Olivia has created an amazing Thai Tea Parfait recipe inspired by Christina Tosi’s Momofuku Milk Bar. Olivia's Thai Tea Parfait has a creamy gelatin base, with a cloud-like mix of Thai tea, dulce de leche and tamarind, which is layered with fresh coconut curd and a crispy almond topping. Yum!

Our own Taylor Caldron shared his recipe for Thai Boba "Bubble" Tea. In order to create Thai Boba Tea, all you need to do is follow a regular thai iced tea recipe (included), with one extra step! It's all about knowing WHEN to add the boba. Check here to find Taylor's Quick Recipe for Thai Boba Tea.
