Thai Tea

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to go to Thailand, mostly to visit, but also to teach English. There was a time in my life – a span of almost a decade – where I ate Pho 7-10 times each week. I honestly never felt healthier. The broth is so filled with essential nutrients, that no matter how good or bad I felt before I ate, I always felt umpteen times better after I had a giant, piping hot bowl of Vietnamese noodle soup. Pho Tai Chin, always and forever.

There’s a hidden glassful of heaven hidden in every single Pho joint, and it’s Thai Tea. You can get it with or without Boba. Truth be told, I’m not a fan of tapioca at all, so I always get mine without Boba. You can, of course, add it to yours. I simply can’t get enough of strong black tea with vanilla and cream, especially if it’s iced. I’m a sucker for iced tea. Especially this. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
