Recipe ingredients and directions:
0.5 c Thai tea
3 c Water
14 oz Sweetened condensed milk
1.5 c Evaporated milk or Half-and-half
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.
