by Frank Tiu featured in Delicious Asian Drinks


for 2 servings

Thai Tea

  • 4 cups
    water (1 L)
  • 1 cup
    thai tea leaves (25 g)

Simple Syrup

  • 2 cups
    sugar (400 g)
  • 1 ½ cups
    water (360 mL)


  • ½ cup
    ice (35 g)
  • simple syrup, to taste
  • 1 cup
    thai tea (240 mL)
  • ¼ cup
    half & half (60 mL)



  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the water and Thai tea leaves. Bring the tea to a boil, then immediately pour the tea through a strainer into a heat-proof vessel to remove the tea leaves. Let the tea cool to room temperature.
  2. Make the simple syrup: in a small pot over high heat, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup is clear.
  3. Assemble the tea: divide the ice between 2 glasses, then add simple syrup, tea, and half-and-half.
  4. Stir before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
