How to Make Thai Tea

 Likes  Comments

Thai course is incomplete without ending it with a Thai iced tea also known as Thai milk tea. After a spicy Thai dinner, this icy dessert drink will soothe your burning gut. Although the beverage is called Thai iced tea by many, some prefer to have it without the ice calling it simply, Thai tea.

There are two ways of making Thai tea. One method is by using the Thai tea mix, which contains tea leaves and a variety of spices and herbs like cinnamon, vanilla, star anise, etc. This mix can be easily found online or in any grocery store. The second method gives you the liberty to make Thai milk tea without the Thai tea mix. However, it requires black tea and a bit more ingredients. Both would ultimately, taste equally yummy!

Instructions
Using Thai tea mix
  1. Bring 1 cup of water to boil in a saucepan or a pot.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of Thai tea mix to a tea sock.
  3. Pour the hot water over the tea and allow it to steep for 30 minutes.
  4. Pour the tea into a glass and add 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  5. Add 2 teaspoons of condensed milk (or half and half) and stir.
  6. Add 2 teaspoons of evaporated milk and stir.
  7. Professionally made Thai iced tea usually contains a little froth or bubbles on top. If you wish to give that professional look to your Thai tea then, take two pitchers and pour the tea from one pitcher to another with a little elevation. You may choose to skip this step but we suggest you try it, it's fun!
  8. Fill another cup halfway with crushed ice, then pour the tea on it.
  9. Finally, you may give it a creamy touch by sprinkling some more evaporated milk on top.
  10. Enjoy your Thai iced tea with some cookies!

Recipe Notes

You can skip adding ice if you wish to serve the tea hot.

If you'd like to maximize the concentration of tea, allow it to steep for about 2 hours.
