Why "es teh", not "teh es", if "tea" is the main word? It's like "tea ice", "ice from tea" :-)

We normally say es teh. When it comes to iced drinks, we usually use es in front of the name of the drink, like es jeruk, es kopi, es cendol, etc. But, in certain regions in Indonesia (I think in some parts of Sumatra or Kalimantan), people say teh es rather than es teh.
