I have no idea what makes iced coffee or iced tea "Thai". Peanut oil? Coconut? Utterly at a loss. :?
I have never had Thai tea or coffee, and I have no clue what goes into them. I should look it up. Thai coffee is perhaps a little rarefied for my simple Midwestern tastes anyway.

I've had Vietnamese coffee a few times (hot)...and it was made with sweetened, condensed milk. Very good.
EDIT- Just checked online, and it looks like Thai coffee is very similar, only with cardomom as well.

Wasn't able to pop by yesterday...one of those days, and you all know what I mean. :D Working from home today, though, and exceptionally happy to be on the porch with the laptop. So, this rusticated Sav Bing's Favorite is loaded with PS Amsterdam that's dry and crispy...just the way I like my non-aros. :thumbs: And ya know, it's a great little pipe. Not much for capacity, but easy to keep lit and light enough to be the perfect clencher. When I first got it, it had a real varnishy taste to it. Almost got rid of it, but someone here (Fr_Tom, perhaps?) advised me just to smoke the funk out of it. That I did! And man, I'm glad I kept'er! Happy Thursday, all!
PS- This isn't a pic of mine, but it's identical. And sorry for the ginormous pic. :(
Same pipe. This time smoking the remnants of PS Amsterdam mixed with the remnants of Uhles Perfection Plug. Not too bad. Club soda on the side.
Same pipe. This time burning good ol' SWRA. Cool water on the side.

Thai iced coffee?
I'm a Thai iced tea fan myself. Haven't had the coffee yet

I could post my wife's recipe but that might not be a good idea. Lol... Google is your friend.

As long as it'd not that stuff made from cat poop I'd drink it.

I don't have a clue either, I just know that I like it. The tea is always very milky, sort of sweet, and an odd reddish orange color. Now that I'm thinking about it I want some :lol:
