Cha Yen (Iced Tea)

First of all, try to get a pack of Thai tea which is available at most Thai groceries. You may also want to get two cans of sweetened milk, also available in most oriental grocery.

  • A pack of Thai tea
  • Hot water
  • Fresh Milk or Coffee-mate cream
  • Sweetened condensed milk.
  1. Soak a pack of Thai tea about 1 ½ cups in a regular size pitcher (the size used for draft beer in the bar) of boiling water. 
  2. Stir it well for about half a minute. Drain it. You should get a dark brown tea liquid. 
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk. Stir well. If you like, you may add some coffee-mate cream (about ½ cup). 
  4. Leave to cool down to room temperature. Serve with ice top with fresh milk.
  5. The right color should be dull orange. 

Note: that Thai tea does not easily brew. To use the coffee maker may not work as some part of it may remain untouched.

It looks interesting! Different from my Thai tea recipe. I'll give it a try!

Thai tea is certainly a favorite for me. It has such a peculiar flavor and amazing health benefits!

I often drink it to treat digestive problems or to boost my immune system. It's quite an ally
