 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Thai tea
  • 3 c Water
  • 14 oz Sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 c Evaporated milk or
  • -half-and-half


Here is the recipe for Thai Iced Tea. It comes from "Thai Home Cooking
From Kamolmal's Kitchen" by Wm. Crawford and Kamolmal Pootaraksa.

1. Put the tea in a bag made of fine cloth. Bring the water to a rapid
boil, pour it over the tea, and let it steep for 3 min. Pour the liquid
back through the tea 5 or 6 times until it is a deep orange color and is
flavored strongly.

2. Strain the tea well, pressing out all the liquid that you can. Add the
sweetened condensed milk to the warm liquid and mix it well. Allow the
mixture to cool to room temp.

3. Just before serving, fill each glass with ice and fill it half to three
quarters full of tea. Add evaporated milk or half-and-half to fill the
glass, and stir well. VARIATION: If you prefer a darker colored and
stronger flavored tea, substitute 3/4 cup granulated sugar for the
sweetened condensed milk.

(Thai Coffee is prepared the same way substituting coffee for the tea.)

Thai tea can be purchased in oriental food markets. It comes in one pound
cellophane packets.
