Thai Iced Tea


You can buy drink mix packets to make Thai Iced Tea, but since I’m not into that, here’s what I do for an iced perk that isn’t coffee:

  • 3-4 star anise pods
  • 6-8 tea bags of black tea (loose leaf is best, use 8 tsp)
  • ~6 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup sugar
  • whole milk
  • ice

Brew a big pitcher of DARK black tea with star anise pods (I got mine from World Market for $2) and sugar.  You want this tea to be so dark you’d never think of drinking it. (Can you tell I don’t often make iced tea?)

When it cools, throw away the tea bags (keep the star anise), and keep the tea  it in the fridge.

To serve, fill a glass with ice, fill the glass half-way with tea, and add milk to taste (I use ~3 tbsp).
