Authentic Thai Iced Tea. Delicious, refreshing sweetened milk tea that is absolutely addictive! A great afternoon iced beverage. My version has the option to be dairy-free.

Calories per serving 84 kcal


  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tbsp Thai Tea leaves or black tea leaves
  • 2 tbsp condensed milk or condensed coconut milk if vegan or dairy-free
  • 2 tbsp evaporated milk or evaporated coconut milk if vegan or dairy-free
  • 2 cups ice


  • In your tea strainer, line it with a coffee filter. This is important as it prevents the tiny pieces of the tea leaves from escaping into your iced tea.
  • Fill the lined tea strainer with the tea leaves. Place the strainer into the small pot and fill the pot with 2 cups of water. Bring it a boil.
  • Boil your tea until it's very dark brown, about 5 minutes. The tea needs to be steeped.
  • Then in two separate glasses, fill them each with 1 tbsp of condensed milk followed by ice cubes.
  • Once your black tea is steeped, pour into the glass.
  • Then pour about 1 tbsp of evaporated milk over each glass and enjoy!
