Thai tea is made from strongly brewed black tea leaves and served with milk and sugar. Drinking it regularly can benefit you. Though not as high in antioxidants as green tea, the black tea in Thai tea has cancer fighting antioxidants which will fight off viruses and diseases in the body. Moreover, it contains caffeine, which acts as a stimulant. When caffeine is consumed in moderation, it provides you with increased concentration, alertness and energy. In addition, it may play a vital role in preventing a future stroke or heart attack by helping your arteries to expand and become healthier. And since it is also quite low in sodium, it won’t aggravate your blood pressure if you already have high readings. Here are some places where you can satisfy your Thai milk tea craving, in dessert form.
