Thai Iced Tea - A Family Feast

Thai Iced Tea

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


1 ½ ounces (just shy of 2/3 cup) Thai tea leaves, or black tea leaves

2 quarts boiling water

½ cup half and half

½ cup sweetened condensed milk


In a bowl or sauce pan, combine dry tea leaves with the boiling water and let steep 30 minutes.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheese cloth and refrigerate the brewed tea until chilled.

Combine the half and half with the sweetened condensed milk.

To serve, fill iced tea glasses half way with ice and fill chilled tea to ¾ of the glass.

Top with the cream mixture and stir.

The sweetened condensed milk is sweet enough that you don’t need additional sweeteners.
