Thai Iced Tea

I was first introduced to Thai iced tea when I was about 19. I hadn’t eaten out hardly at all as a child other than pizza because I grew up in a small rural town and my parents didn’t love to eat out so we never really ventured to different kinds of restaurants. When I moved to D.C. for photography school I became best friends with a fellow photography student, her name was Michelle and she is still my best friend today! Michelle knew all the best restaurants and introduced me to so many wonderful things! Thai was one of her favorites and quickly became one of mine too! But my favorite thing of all that we got was Thai iced tea, it was delicious and such a special treat. When I moved back home after school I always craved Thai tea and would look for Thai restaurants every trip or vacay we would go on. I found a place about 45 minutes away from our house that I could get it at and enjoyed treating myself to it several times a month when we would head that direction until about two years ago when caffeine started bothering me. Caffeine never affected me at all until I was like 33 and then all of a sudden I would feel terrible or not be able to sleep any time I drank it much after noon! I knew I didn’t want to be done with Thai tea in my life so I decided to come up with a way to not only make it at home but to be able to make it with very little caffeine. The Qbubble Thai tea powder has tea extract in it which may have a little caffeine in it but however much is in there it has not bothered me and I make the base with decaf tea so now I can drink it any time I want!
