Time for Thai

It’s summer break, which means it’s time to try new tea and coffee recipes! I’d like to try a new one each week this summer, and today was recipe number one.

Today I made my variation of Iced Thai Tea. The original comes from this post, but mine involves just plain, black tea. Authentic Thai tea is a mixture made with black tea, anise, and cardamon, but you can get by with Lipton’s black tea and a dash of cinnamon.

Iced Thai Tea

4 black tea bags

4 cups water

3/4 cups sugar

1 cup half & half

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add 3/4 cups of sugar and 4 bags of tea to the water and let steep for 3 minutes. Let the mixture cool for at least 30 minutes. The longer it cools with the tea bags in it, the better it tastes.

Next, fill 4 glasses with ice. Pour the tea over the ice until the glass is 3/4 full. Add the half & half to the top and serve.

That’s it! Enjoy a cool sip of tea and sit back and enjoy a beautiful May day.
