Thai Ice Tea
One of our favorite drinks during summer! Very aromatic and super easy. All you need is thai tea, ice cubes, water and milk. Please note that Thai tea leaves are so much different than any regular tea leaves. It is basically a black tea, but I have no idea if the fragrant was an addition during the process or anything else. I did sense something smell like star anise and vanilla. It also has this dark orange color, when you mix it with milk it is as orange as the sunset.
Here it is, my version of Thai Tea :
4-5 tsp of thai tea leaves (the more you use, the more orange and the more aromatic)
4 tbsp sugar
300 ml water
250 ml uht plain milk
1. Bring the water to the boil, add the thai tea leaves and sugar. Turn off the heat. Let cool
2. Strain the mixture into glasses, add milk and ice cubes. Ready to serve.
