"Teh panas"

Translation:Hot tea

Teh panas is "hot tea" ....why is "iced tea" es teh? Where should the adjective be placed...before or after the noun?

It might seem strange, but because Indonesia has a huge variety of ice drinks (e.g. es buah), in this case the 'tea' describes the ice; whereas panas describes the tea. You are correct in thinking that the adjective comes after the noun it describes.
