The weather in Thailand can be so hot and spending a few minutes outdoors can leave you with your sweat dripping. For a lot of tourists, getting used to the extreme heat is a challenge and though it is tempting to head on to an air-conditioned room, the best way to cool down is actually to make a stop at the nearest street vendor stall and get a small plastic cup of Thai iced tea.
Thai iced tea is rich and milky and has an earthy orange color – it is one of the favorite summertime drinks of many people. This and other Thai drinks are versatile and can be best served cold or hot. They can also be served as frozen shakes.
