If you know what Thai Iced Tea is, then you exactly what this tastes like. It’s naturally sweet and potent, with a little bit of spice from the anise, tamarind, and cardamom that’s blended with it( more crushed than anything else for flavoring). Like the label suggests, this is indeed authentic Thai tea, and is good on it’s own, but best with sugar and sweetened condensed milk. Tea snobs might either be offended, or occasionally indulgent in this cuisine staple. Someone new trying teas might like this and if they do, it’s more of a cultural experience than one purely for tea tasting.
Like I said before, this tea is VERY sweet, and the coloring is very deep, so clothes would be possible stained with a vibrant, orange. That’s the color of this tea, and becomes lighter and more beautiful with condensed milk. The first scent and taste that comes to mind is coconut, though the note is strong enough almost to be a flavor. The same can be said for the creamy, malty texture of this tea. Then there’s some leading vanilla, anise, tamarind, and cardamom in the background. A part of me is curious what this tastes like Gongfu because it’s so heavily flavored, but Western style might be better because it’s intended to be strong enough for sweetened condensed milk and sugar.
