9 Famous Thai Drinks to Quench Your Thirst

Thai Drinks sweating with ice are excellent in quenching your thirst while roaming around the Land of Angels. There’s a wide variety of sweet and colorful Thai Drinks you can buy on the street to freshen yourself from the unbearing heat of the country. But take note that most Thai Drinks you will find have a sweet flavor, so if you have a sweet tooth, it’s favorable for you, on the contrary, if you are not a fan of sweet beverages, you can still find the not-so-sweet liquid to satisfy yourself.

Let’s name a few of the many delicious Thai Drinks so there’s something for you to look forward to when you spend your vacation in the Land of Smiles. 

Nam Anchan (Butterfly Pea)

Nam Achan is among the typical Thai Drinks you can have. This drink is very attractive for its blue color extracted from the flower Clitoria Ternatea. This herbal tea changes its color from blue to purple when you add lime juice to it. 

Thai Drinks: O-liang ( Thai Iced Coffee)

Are you a coffee lover but with a twist? With the unforgiving hot weather in Thailand, you will enjoy a rather iced coffee than the usual hot coffee you are having during the cold weather in the Autumn/Winter. Thai Iced Coffee is among the popular Thai Drinks made from ground sugar, various grains and seeds like cardamom, corn, soybeans, rice, and sesame seeds, and ground coffea canephora. The beverage is well-known for its aroma and a smoky note from the high-roasted grains.

Coco Yen (Iced Cocoa)

One of the favorite Thai Drinks is coco yen. People love drinking this while strolling around, waiting for the bus to go to work, school, or somewhere, and is usually served in a plastic cup. The combination of bitter and sweet flavor makes the drink so refreshing which is why many locals and even tourists buy this beverage.

Cha Yen (Thai Iced Tea)

You can find Cha Yen in most restaurants that serve Thai Food and is famous in Southeast Asia. This refreshing drink consists of ceylon tea, sugar, and milk with cubes of ice.

Cha Manao (Lime Iced Tea)

People who don’t like sweet Thai Drinks can try Cha Manao. Unlike cha yen -which has milk in it so it has a sweet flavor- lime iced tea consists of freshly squeezed lime juice so expect a sweet and sour taste from it.

Sugarcane Juice or Nam Oy

Have you tried chewing sugarcane and sip its sweet juice when you were young? It is refreshing to go back to your childhood and think of the time where you were munching the sugarcane from your garden, right. But if you don’t have this experience, no worries because in Thailand you can try chewing the raw sugarcane. However, if you’re not in the mood to do it, you can buy sugarcane juice. Warning: Consuming the juice is a bit challenging because of its super-sweet taste.

Nam Matoom (Bael Juice)

Dried bael fruit is the main ingredient of this delicious drink and you can find it on the small stalls on the street or in many Thai restaurants. It is considered the best summer Thai Drink because of its cooling components and also good for health. 

Pink Milk: Thai Drinks

Pink is mostly the favorite color of girls or ladies which makes this drink a favorite among young girls and even adults. The contents of this yummy Pink Milk refreshment are red syrup, sweetened condensed milk, water, and milk.

Nam Bai Toey (Pandan Juice)

With the fragrant smell of pandan leaves, it is usually used in many food preparations to give the food a good smell. Pandanus is also among the Thai Drinks which is beneficial to the health especially to the heart.

When you go to Thailand, you will notice that they pour the juice or any beverage in clear plastic and put the straw in it then they sip the juice. Isn’t it nice to try it if you haven’t done it in your whole life? This can be considered an unforgettable experience, so go on, dig in and have a good time
