Asian Iced Tea

Sean is a coffee-addict.  Seriously.  But once in awhile, when his veins (and of course, mine, by mere proximity) are too full of coffee, we opt for Thai tea.  It can be found at any Thai restaurant worth its salt or at some indy coffee shops.  If you haven’t ever tried one, hunt one down immediately!  You’ll love what you find.  The way the cream clouds down through the orange tea is my favorite part.  This sweet drink will perfectly accompany your next spicy dish or replace your afternoon latte. 

2 quarts of water
10 packets of Asian or Thai tea (Masala works well)
1/2 C. sugar
Half & half

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan on the stove.  Add the sugar and dissolve.  Once the sugar has dissolved, add the tea bags and steep for about 5 minutes.  Allow tea to cool completely. 

Fill a tall glass with ice and pour the tea almost all the way up.  Top with a splash of half and half and let it cloud down.

  1. I have such a vivid and happy memory of the first time I tried Thai tea in high school. Delicious! I cannot wait to make it myself!
