Description

This recipe is a personal favorite that puts all those boring, flavorless teas to shame! Perfect for every season!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Water
  • 1 cup Loose Thai Tea
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¾ cups Sweetened, Condensed Milk

Preparation

Note: If sweetened condensed milk is too sweet for you, you can use evaporated milk or cream instead and just sweeten the tea before adding the milk. If you are lactose intolerant, you can sweeten the tea with sugar and add soy milk instead. Just be sure to add the sugar after the tea has steeped. Agave nectar works just fine, too.

In a medium-sized pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the loose tea and vanilla and remove from heat. Be sure to stir so that all leaves have been submerged in the water. Allow to steep for about ten minutes.

Strain the tea in a pitcher using a mesh strainer and place in the fridge to cool. (If adding sugar, do so at this time and stir till sugar has dissolved. See note below.)

When ready to serve, fill glasses with ice to the top. Pour in the tea until the cup is 3/4 full of liquid. Add a few tablespoons of the sweetened condensed milk. Leave a straw or a spoon so that each person can mix it on their own.

Enjoy!

Note: If you are not using sweetened condensed milk, then I recommend you use about 1/2 cup of sugar, adding more to taste.

digigirl- I usually get my hands on loose thai tea (or coffee-whichever you prefer) from Safeway… but i’m sure you could find it at an asian specialty shop or something. if not, there’s always ebay or amazon. usually you can find the best prices on ebay for those types of things.

Beautiful picture! I love Thai tea but have only had it at restaurants and have always wanted to make it at home. Where do you get your Thai tea mix? I haven’t been able to find it anywhere!

Yum! I LOVE all things Thai, I plan on trying your recipe out! The place I used to get my Thai coffees from always tasted so bitter. Thank you!

Made this late last night using my favorite Thai tea mix (Pantai brand; found in local Asian markets) but didn’t taste it until this morning. It was actually pretty good… So good that it taste just like how it’s made in restaurants. Can’t really tell the difference =)
