With summer finally upon us, we decided to make some refreshing iced tea to cool down. We have tried lots of different blends of tea in our quest to make iced tea just like we get in Thailand, however whilst some did taste good, the only type that we found that tastes right is number one brand Thai tea leaves.
So if you have been struggling to find iced tea just like the one you had in Thailand, give this simple recipe a try!

Step 1: Line a strainer with some coffee filter paper, and place the strainer over a jug. Then spoon 2 tbsp of thai tea leaves into the filter paper.
Step 2: Now pour 3/4 cup of boiling water over the tea leaves, and let the water filter through into the jug. Once all of the water has filtered through, place the strainer with the tea leaves over another jug, and pour the jug of tea over the tea leaves again. Repeat this a total of 4 or 5 times depending on how strong you like the tea.
Step 3: Next add 1 tbsp of sugar, 2 tbsp of condensed milk, and 2 1/2 tbsp of fresh milk to the jug of tea, and stir thoroughly.
Step 4: Finally, pour the tea into a glass of ice, and top with 2 tbsp of evaporated milk, then serve and enjoy!
