Ingredients (serves 1)
1 tablespoon Thai black tea (loose-leaf or bag)
1 cup of boiling water
2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk
2-3 teaspoons evaporated milk or creamer of choice (half and half, coconut milk, etc.)
1 cup of crushed ice
1. Place loose leaf tea in an infuser or 1 tea bag into a mug, then pour in 1 cup of boiling water.
2. Steep the tea for about 5 minutes, until it turns dark red in color. Remove the infuser or bag.
3. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir. Then, add evaporated milk (or creamer of choice) and continue to stir the tea until fully mixed -- the tea should become creamy orange in color.
4. Pour over a glass of ice and serve. *You can also skip the ice and serve it hot
Pro Tip: To give your Thai iced tea a final creamy touch, drizzle some additional evaporated milk onto the top of your glass!
