What is Thai tea?

Thai Chai tea is a delicious blend of black tea and Thai spices. Opening a pouch of our Thai Chai, your senses will be amazed by the aroma of creamy, sweet coconut and lemongrass – delicious pieces of coconut clearly visible amongst the ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom. 

Thai tea vs Chai tea

In India, Chai is the word some languages use for tea. Traditional Indian-style chai has spices added, known as the popular Masala Chai, or "spiced chai".

Then what is Thai tea? It is also a spiced tea, but Thai tea originated in Thailand in the late 20th century. If you've ever wondered why Thai tea is orange, it is common practice in Thailand as well as American Thai restaurants to add artificial food coloring to create a bright orange drink. Thai tea is popularly served over ice with a lot of evaporated milk and sugar.

How to make Thai iced tea

Our Thai Chai tea is a wonderful blend of lemongrass, ginger, and just the right touch of cinnamon. We recommend steeping two full teaspoons per 8 oz cup.

To make hot thai tea, we recommend steeping at 212° for 5 minutes.

For the iced version, allow the tea to cool. Combine sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk and chill until slightly frozen. Use a milk frother to whisk until the sweetened milk creates a creamy froth for the rich Thai tea flavor. Coconut milk or cream can also be used, but it won't have the same restaurant-quality flavor. Pour tea over crushed ice, top with the creamy froth and add sugar for sweetness to taste. Give it a stir and enjoy! No artificial dye added here!

Refreshing but not overflavored

I was looking for a warm weather alternative to maharaja chia. This tea is light and refreshing but does not have the complex flavors I was hoping for. Probably user error.

Hi Dan - Yes, as far as our chai teas go, the Chai Green is one of the lighter ones, so great thinking for your warmer weather alternative! Adding more tea to your steep will intensify the flavors. Or If you are looking for more complex flavors, you may like Dancing Vanilla Bean ( or White Chai Spice ( - both best sellers!

Good tea

Very close to my expectation. Used to purchase a similar tea at Teavana.



Love this tea. Will order more. Have been searching a long time to find something similar to Tropica Rooboid

I’m in love with this tea

Mixed Samarai Spirit Mate with Maharajah Chai Oolong and it was so, so good. Wonderful flavor and soothing warmth. I’m loving this! My eleven year old granddaughter loves it too!
