I asked this a year or two ago, but didn't really get any responses.

What is your favorite brand of Thai tea?

    Do you mean the packages of tea leaves or the ready to drink?

    I guess my fave of the tea leaves is Sunlee because it's the only kind I can find in the Asian groceries close to me!

      The dried stuff in the bag that you steep to make a drink.

      (I hesitate to say just tea leaves because they also use other flavorings and coloring.)

      Haven't seen Thai tea in groceries, perhaps specialty Asian stores would carry it.

      Possible substitute:
      Brew Twinings or Stash Chai Spice Tea. Add condensed milk and sugar and pour over crushed ice. Stick in a straw.
