Bi Tua Drink ( Nam Bi Tua )

10:56 PM Posted In Edit This 1 Comment »


Bi tua is a Thai green reed that can be purchased in asian grocers. When you pulp it in water, it makes the water green and releases a bubblegum like flavour. This drink is a completely natural taste without any of the artificial flavours of factory made drinks!

20 gms Bi Tua
250 ml Water
120 gms Sugar
50 gms Crushed Ice

1. Chop the Bi Tua into 2 cm lengths, put into a food processor together with the water and blend until the fibres are completely broken into the water.
2. Sieve the liquid to remove any pulp, and put into a saucepan.
3. Add the sugar, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes, then leave to cool.
4. To serve crush the ice, pile the ice in a glass and pour the drink over it.

I would like to find a source for the bi tua. Cannot find it anywhere, even internet spice dealers don't seem to know what it is.
