The Most Common Drinks in Thailand – Quench Your Thirst

The beverage culture in Thailand is quite exciting. Besides Thai beer that is extremely popular among visitors, the country offers a variety of colourful and delicious drinks for teetotalers.

 

Here are some of the best options;

 

Cha Yen

This is a very sweet Thai iced tea. Cha Yen is made out of black tea and sweetened condensed milk, served with ice and some evaporated milk on the top. This is a bright orange drink often served in Thai restaurants such as the ones in resorts like Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort.

 

 

Cha Manao

Directly translated as lime tea, this is perfect for all tea lovers. This is brewed similar to Cha Yen but instead of the condensed milk, it is mixed with squeezed lime. This is common beverage found anywhere including street venders, city hotels, beach resorts and at riverside restaurants in Bangkok.

 

Nam Manao

This is simply lime juice served with water and sugar. It is the perfect refreshing drink to ease the humidity and heat from tropical Thailand and to even out spicy Thai curries. Most restaurants serve the drink with sugar syrup on the side to sweeten it as you like.

 

Sweet flavoured milk

This is a scrumptious drink made out of milk, coloured and flavoured syrup and ice. It’s a very sweet drink that compliments most flavorful Thai dishes.
