Frequently Asked Questions

What is Thai tea mix made of?

Thai tea itself, when prepared from loose leaf or tea bag form, is made from strong brewed black tea infused with ingredients such as cardamom, star anise, vanilla, and tamarind.

Can I make a batch of Thai tea in advance and store it for later use?

Yes, you can prepare Thai tea itself in advance and refrigerate it for convenience. However, the smoothie should be consumed right after it is made.

Storage Tips

To store any leftover smoothie, place it in the fridge. While refrigeration will slow down the melting process, it’s important to note that it won’t completely prevent the smoothie from melting.
