Thai Iced Tea

After a long time I am posting a Thai recipe. Here is the summer special cool Thai Iced Tea recipe. I prepared this Thai Tea with store bought Thai Tea mix, which I sweetened with condensed milk and sugar and topped it up with evaporated milk and with a dash of coconut milk, Usually the Thai tea is brewed first and then sweetened and just before serving the sweetened tea is added to the crushed ice and the milks are added after. I have included the video also.

I tried to prepare Thai tea mix from scratch but couldn’t replicate it 100% and then went with store bought Thai Tea mix. So what makes Thai tea unique? It is a strongly brewed black tea but spiced up with star anise, orange blossom and the key ingredient Tamarind Seed powder or crushed tamarind seed. (That’s what I was missing.) This tea can be brewed well ahead and can be quickly assembled before serving. The fact that it is served chill makes it party friendly and also a summer special drink.
