How to Make Thai Iced Tea

Updated on September 7, 2014

A Quick & Easy Thai Iced Tea Recipe

There's really not much that goes into making Thai tea. In order to get started you'll need some Thai tea mix, sugar & either half & half, milk or evaporated milk -- based on your own taste preference. The local Thai restaurant that got me addicted to these things uses half & half. If you don't already have something available in your kitchen, you may also want to invest in a cheap steel mesh tea filter like this one. Now that you've got the supplies it's time to learn how to make Thai Iced Tea...
