Thai Iced Tea Made Easy

But rather than sticking it into the fridge or freezer and cooling the tea off, it’s instead poured over a cup of crushed ice before being consumed.

Total time




  • 1 cup of hot boiling water

  • 2 teaspoons sugar

  • 2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 tablespoon Thai black tea

  • 1 cup of crushed ice

  • 2 teaspoons evaporated milk (plus some more to sprinkle on top)


  • First step is to boil water, I’m just using a pot, but you could use a water boiler or microwave
  • Take your tea sock and add about 1 tablespoon of black Thai tea. It’s then easiest to put your tea sock into a bowl or big cup in order to steep the tea.
  • Pour 1 cup of boiling water into the tea sock, and push it in and out to steep the tea and extract all that flavr. Steep the tea for a few minutes until it turns nice and dark in color.
  • Taking a new cup, pour in 1 glass of hot tea
  • Add 2 teaspoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk, and give it a nice sti
  • Then add 2 teaspoons of evaporated milk, and continue to stir the tea until everything is fully mixed in
  • Optional – A good Thai iced tea should have a little froth or some bubbles on top, so take 2 pitchers, and pour the tea from one to the other, with a bit of elevation. You could do this in a different way too, but it’s pretty fun!
  • Take a cup and fill it all the way to the top with crushed ice
  • Gentry pour your hot tea mixture over the cup of ice
  • To give your Thai iced tea a final creamy touch, drizzle on some more evaporated milk onto the top of your cup
  • Add a straw, and you’re ready to start slurping it down!
