About ThailandThailand is not among the top 10 producers of tea worldwide, but it is nonetheless an important source of tea.
What Thailand lacks in quantity it makes up in quality. Thailand produces green and oolong teas; some of these teas are among the most expensive and most desired teas, and are consumed in regions such as Taiwan with a strong demand for high-quality teas. Thailand also produces organic teas. Unfortunately, most of these teas are not widely available in the U.S.
Thailand is also the country that originated "Thai iced tea", a strongly brewed black tea mixed with spices, sugar, and condensed milk and/or coconut milk. In the U.S., Thai iced tea, often brewed from teas grown in other countries, is much more well-known than tea actually grown in Thailand.
