Hello, summer! While it might not be my favorite season, there are some benefits, like getting to drink this - preferably while on vacation, while the sun is setting.
I buy the Thai tea mix online, and the rest is a breeze. (See the link below the recipe.) Make the components up to three days in advance, and you'll have this sweet treat on call.
Thai Iced Tea
1 cup Thai tea mix
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup condensed milk
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium-sized sauce pan. Remove from the heat; add the tea mix and the sugar and whisk to combine. Steep for 4 minutes. Strain using a chinois or fine mesh strainer. Refrigerate until cold.
Meanwhile, make the sweetened cream by combining the half and half with the condensed milk. Stir to combine. Refrigerate.
To serve, fill a cup with ice. Pour the iced tea about three-quarters of the way up. Top with sweetened cream and serve immediately.
