Thai Iced Tea

Thai Iced Tea is the perfect drink for spring and summer. It doesn't taste like regular iced tea that we've all grown up with. Instead it has milk as well as a nice blend of spices you wouldn't typically find in ordinary iced tea, and that is exactly what makes Thai iced tea so special.


  • 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup black tea leaves (depending on how strong you prefer tea)
  • 2-3 star anise
  • 5-6 cardamom 
  • 2-4 cloves
  • 6 cups cold water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • ice


In a medium sauce pot, bring 6 cups of water to a boil. When the water reaches boiling point, toss in tea leaves along with the spices and sugar. Let the water come back and allow it to boil for about 5 minutes. Turn off stove and let tea steep along with the spices until cool. Strain tea. Pour into pitcher and pour in condensed milk. Let tea chill in fridge for at least 4 hours before adding evaporated milk. Pour over ice in tall glasses and serve!

Yields: 6 tall glasses
