Difference between Thai milk tea and regular milk tea

  • The Ingredients are different. The main ingredients of Thai milk tea include black tea powder, condensed milk, fructose, fresh cream, etc., especially the unique Thai deep-roasted black tea.
  • Thai tea as a special aroma of Thai tea, and the taste is denser and smoother. Due to the addition of different spices and syrups, the taste is richer.
  • The color is different. This is my favorite part, I love the color of Thai Tea so much. The color of Thai milk tea is brighter, orange-red or bright orange, different from plain regular brown sugar milk tea.

This Thai tea boba is based on Thai milk tea and adds chewy Boba pearl, giving it a richer taste. It’s also very simple to make and it only takes ten minutes to get you to Thailand. I used black tea instead of Thai tea, and added milk and condensed milk to to replicate Thai milk tea perfectly.
