Thai Iced Tea Recipe (Cha Yen)


1 tablespoon Thai black tea

1 cup of hot boiling water

2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk

2 teaspoons evaporated milk (plus some more to sprinkle on top)

2 teaspoons sugar

1 cup of crushed ice


1.First step is to boil water, I’m just using a pot, but you could use a water boiler or microwave

2.Take your tea sock and add about 1 tablespoon of black Thai tea. It’s then easiest to put your tea sock into a bowl or big cup in order to steep the tea.

3.Pour 1 cup of boiling water into the tea sock, and push it in and out to steep the tea and extract all that flavr. Steep the tea for a few minutes until it turns nice and dark in color.

4.Taking a new cup, pour in 1 glass of hot tea

5.Add 2 teaspoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk, and give it a nice stir

6.Then add 2 teaspoons of evaporated milk, and continue to stir the tea until everything is fully mixed in

7.Optional - A good Thai iced tea should have a little froth or some bubbles on top, so take 2 pitchers, and pour the tea from one to the other, with a bit of elevation. You could do this in a different way too, but it’s pretty fun!

8.Take a cup and fill it all the way to the top with crushed ice

9.Gentry pour your hot tea mixture over the cup of ice

10.To give your Thai iced tea a final creamy touch, drizzle on some more evaporated milk onto the top of your cup

11.Add a straw, and you’re ready to start slurping it down!


Thai iced tea is a great sweet beverage on a hot day! Enjoy this recipe!
