This bright orange colored beverage is more popular in the U.S. than it is in Thailand. In it, raw tea leaves are combined with roasted corn, vanilla and, in most cases, orange food coloring. Evaporated milk (not to be confused with the sweetened condensed milk used in Thai coffee) is traditionally used in this intensely sweet, mega-strong tea infusion.
