How to Make Thai Tea – easy recipe
100 Comments


Greetings my lovelies! Hi, it’s Emmy. Welcome back to another “Emmy How-To Recipe.” Today I’ll be making a beverage and it”ll be — this beverage. And this is Thai ice tea. And this is the perfect drink for summer; so summer is ending here but those of you in the Southern hemisphere summer is about to start, so
get yourself some Thai iced tea. All right! So let’s go in the kitchen and I’ll show you how it’s done. So the ingredients that you need are some Thai tea powder…. some evaporated milk… sugar… water… and you’ll need some ice later. Bring four cups of water to the boil on the stove top and then add 1 cup of your Thai tea powder…. Stir to combine and then bring
the whole mixture to a boil. Then add three quarters (3/4) of a cup of sugar. Then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for about three minutes. After three minutes take the tea off the stove and allow to cool completely. Next we need to strain the tea concentrate. This is traditionally done with a tea sock — but I didn’t have one so I’m just using
the strainer. Use any kind of strainer you like; I’m just using the tea infuser. At this point
you can store the tea concentrate in a jar in your fridge and it’ll keep for
a couple days; and this is enough to make six or eight cups of tea. When you’re ready to serve, get a tall
glass; fill it with some ice cubes; add some tea concentrate — about two-thirds of the way up your glass…. and then top with a generous glug of evaporated milk… add a straw, and you are ready to enjoy! All right. Let’s give the finished tea a taste. Konpai! Mmm! Sweet! and milky! and rich! and that very unique, specific Thai tea flavor… vanilla, and a little bit — spiced! Cardamomy? I don’t know — delicious is what it is. And what I like about this recipe is that while it’s sweet, it’s not overly so, especially when the ice melts a little
bit — it’s the perfect amount of sweetness for me. For those of you that can’t have
dairy, you can easily substitute coconut milk soymilk, or whatever you like. I like evaporated milk; but half-and-half is lovely too; whole milk is great too; but — yeah — feel free to make it your own; this is your Thai tea after all. All right. So while we’re on the subject of tea, let me know in the comments below what your tea of choice is. [Blub, blub, blub, blah, blub.] My son’s tea of choice is water — which he’s gargling. And while my baby gargles in the background, don’t forget to subscribe, “like”, and comment! And I hope you guys enjoyed that! I hope you guys learned something; and I shall see you in my next video. Toot-a-loo! Take care. Bye. This reminds me a lot of a red pepper spread that I had from Hungary — I’ll put that link down below… I believe…..I forgot what it’s called….like “pistache….pis…grrr….Hungarian friends do tell me in the comments below! [Blub, blub, blub, blah, blub.]

  1. can someone help tell me how to make thai tea from scratch? vanilla, cardamon and anise is what i’ve heard and found so far but no ratios!

  2. You can get the tea sock from any big Asian Market for 99cents. I use coffee creamer instead of putting regular sugar in it. It taste just right without the not needed sugar.

  3. Thanks a lot Ms. Emmy for this recipe. I made my own https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWHyoGEPkzE&t=202s

  4. Extraterrestrial Composition 👽 🎶

  6. I never considered using evaporated milk – I made a sugar syrup, then added it to the tea and used half & half to top it off. I’ll try this next time

  7. I used to be so freaking closed-minded when i was younger. Back in 2001 when i used to live in LosAngeles, a friend of mine took me to a Thai Restaurant. Like i said earlier, i used to be so freaking closed-minded when i was younger, And i actually got a little frustrated at my friend (back then) because i told him that i DIDN'T like Thai food and i told him that i was NOT going to TRY foods that i'm NOT SURE what "things" are in it.
    He told me to BE QUIET (LOL) And he insisted that i try just a little bit of the Thai tea AND a little bit of the Thai lunch special.
    He said that IF i hated both, that he would take me then to a pizza restaurant instead Or anywhere else i wanted to go to, so i definitely agreed to at LEAST TRY BOTH ONCE: i LOVED IT, mmmmMMMM, oh yes, i LOVED BOTH the Thai tea instantly AND whatever that Thai lunch special i ate.
    He couldn't stop rubbing it in my face after that day, ha ha. NOW EVERY TIME i see a Thai restaurant, i have to/MUST STOP BY AND ORDER a Thai tea to go Or if i have time to stop by, i'll eat inside for their lunch specials. YUUM YUUMM, i LOVE Thai tea AND MOST of their lunch special plates ARE SO DELICIOUS, ha ha. 😀
    I'm gonna start buying the big bags (like the size of a coffee bag) on-line instead, so that i can make MORE Thai tea this coming Summer 'cause Lord knows it can get COSTLY TOO eating out every weekend, haa (Thai tea, YUUM YUUMM)! 🙂

  8. Remember… If you run out of ice, freeze some water on an ice tray. Frozen water and ice could both work the same way in most cases.👌👌👌

  9. I ❤❤❤ Thai Tea. It's my dad tea. Hubby hates it. He says it tastes like hay. Good for me cuz I get all the tea.

  10. I thought it was sweetened condensed milk. Dont spill that tea. Will stain you, counter top, floor, clothes. I found out the hard way.

  11. I am equally amazed and confused… a Thai Buddhist monk offered me a cup of what looks like Emmy's tea recently but it was a brighter orange and tasted fruity! Is there an oranger variation of Thai iced tea? I'm thinking he really meant business

  12. Newly married to a Thai American…so much to learn. I feel daunted by cooking what his parents might like sometimes.

  13. Real nice, using a powder with artificial dies. Just what people came for, carcinogenic recipes. You're a douche!

  14. Thank us later!
