Thai Iced Tea

  • 1/2 cup Thai tea 
  • 3 cup water 
  • 14 oz Sweetened condensed milk 
  • 1 1/2 cup Evaporated milk or half-and-half
  • Place the tea in a bag of muslin or other 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.
  • 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. 
  • Just before serving, fill each glass with cracked 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.
