There is a popular Thai iced tea mix you can get from Asian grocery shop (pictured) - this is for us, a very poor grade tea and also there is unidentifiable colour and flavour in it. We have spoken to Thai tea enthusiasts and chefs and no one seems to know what is in it, but all can agree there is too much colour in the tea to be natural, and so as the flavour.
However if you like this Thai tea taste, you have to buy this stuff to make it ;)
