Can anyone point me to a reputable merchant that sells Thai teas? Or perhaps a variaty sold by Adagio?
Specifically I'm looking for a black tea with a very orange to red coloring. A few of my favorite thai resaurants use loose leaf for their Iced Tea, but won't share a source for it.
Fully oxidized tea leaves for a robust cup.
Did you see them make the thai tea so that you are sure that it was actually made from loose tea? Regradless try http://www.enjoyingtea.com/enjoyingtea/ ... aitea.html I have personally ordered tea (not this product however) and have always been satisfied with my order, hence they are the first place that I go to for things that Adagio does not sell.
Thai tea is basically black tea, several different spices, and orange food coloring. It's not a natural color . You should be able to find it in any asian supermarket on the tea isle. It normally comes in a 16oz bag. It brews to be rather bitter, so you have to add lots of sugar. More of a dessert than an everyday drink.
