Thai Tea Mix

Posted: While Drinking Coffee!   |   Online Coffee Store

OK, this isn’t coffee, but similar to the Thai Coffee you can get in restaurants. The tea mix is a loose tea, which you brew similar to Thai Coffee. It is also served cold, with creamer, and usually a lot of sugar. You can get the mix online, and make it at home WAY cheaper than in a restaurant. You can make quite a bit with the single bag of loose tea.You don’t make it per-glass, you create about a quart at a time and store it in the refrigerator.

Basic Instructions:

Boil 3 cups of water
Add about 2/3 cup of the loose tea (see below)
Simmer and stir for about 3 minutes
Let cool for about 5 minutes.
Strain (using a tea sock) into a glass container.
(you can’t really strain it through a coffee filter because it will not strain properly)

You should add the sugar while it is still hot, so it will dissolve. Just add sugar to taste, about 1/3 cup.

Chill the mix for a few hours, pour over ice, and then pour cream, or whole milk, or condensed sweet milk, just like in the restaurant.

You only add the cream/milk when you are ready to drink.
