The key to this is finding the right type of tea, not black tea. You can find this at an Asian market or whole foods/bristol farms. Thank you for posting this! Perfect on a warm summer day while cooking other Thai recipes from AR!

This tea is good, but it is certainly not the same sweet tea you receive at your favorite Thai restaurant, and I pretty much knew that going in, but figured I should try it before I rate it. There is a specific Thai tea that is used in this; and it's not black tea. It's actually a red tea and can generally be purchased at any Asian market. That tea makes ALL the difference in the world in the taste.

I think "black tea" needs to be more specific. Didn't taste like traditional thai tea.

Wasn't what we were expecting. Did not have the traditional Thai Iced Tea flavor at all.

If you use Star Anise, Clove, and Vanilla in addition to black tea it's pretty darn close.

Do not use black tea. Other wise it is very tasty. I will keep trying this w/ different teas until I find the one I like the best.
