Over the weekend I visited a Thai restaurant in Koreatown and not only was the seafood soup + Thai fried catfish amazing but during the experience I was introduced to Thai Tea and I fell in love! I asked the server how to make it.
I got the basics, hopped on the internet and found a remixed grown folks version of the drink. Check out the recipe below.
Spiked Thai Iced Tea
4 ounces Baileys (or unsweetened condensed milk for the non-alcoholic version)
1 cup water
4 tablespoons Thai tea mix (preferred Pantai Norasingh)
3-4 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
Bring water and tea to a boil. Stir in sugar to taste. Remove from heat and strain* into a heat proof container. Let tea cool down for at least 1 hour. Fill a glass with ice and pour in tea mixture, leaving some space at the top. For the spiked version, pour in Bailey's. For the non-alcoholic version pour in condensed milk. Stir until mixed well.
*I used cheese cloth for this.
Enjoy and yes Thai Cuisine is so DELLA APPROVED!
