Is there a place i could get Thai Ice Tea (with or without bubbles) in Montreal? I really really miss my thai ice tea.

  1. i think they serve some at tapioca the near guy concordia area, but i've never tried it. i love thai tea, but haven't had the chance to drink any since i've been here.

    1. I have never seen it here, so I make my own with chai tea & sweetened condensed milk.

        A few Thai restaurants have it but in general it's a rare find. I am referring to the original version not the one with bubbles. The last place i saw it was at a Thai restaurant in Rosemere, Laval. Sorry not verry helpful to you. Maybe check out online menus of thai restaurants at restomontreal.ca?

          Do you find any of the Thai ice tea in Montreal good? I usually get mine at Talay Thai restaurant, but I don't have any other Thai ice tea to compare it to.

            No, the few times I have had it here, it has been below average. It has a smoky/ashy taste that I find revolting; not at all like what I had in Thailand and some places in the US.

              Now I know what you mean(smoky/ashy taste). Any Thai Ice Tea in Montreal, that doesn't have that?

              1. re: BLM

                I haven't come across any that don't have that taste. I have given up on finding a decent one here.

      2. I just checked my takeout menu for Talay Thai, and they have Thai iced tea on the menu - #67, $2.75.

        5697 Cote-des-Neiges, corner Cote-Ste-Catherine (a stone's throw from the Jewish General!)

        1. La Thailande on Bernard also has the original Thai iced tea.

          1. I just bought some imported thai ice tea in a can from a place called Thaiphoon (i think) on union street between pres. kennedy and maisonneuve. i think there is an entrance to the mcgill metro station next door.

            it was pretty good, but a bit stronger than what i am used to, so, i added milk to it.
