Love drinking Thai milk tea at your favorite Thai place? Make it at home! Easier, more affordable and tastes even better!


  • 5 c. water
  • 3/4 c. Thai Tea Mix
  • 2/3 cup (or to taste) sweetened condensed milk
  • Sugar to taste (optional)
  • 2 cups (or to taste) of your favorite milk
  • ice


  1. Boil 5 cups of water in a medium sized pot.
  2. Once the water boils, turn it off, and put the leaves straight into the water.
  3. Let tea seep uncovered, off the burner, 4 minutes.
  4. Use a fine mesh strainer or a tea sock to strain the tea into another pot or bowl.
  5. Add in sweetened condensed milk to taste when the tea is still hot, so it can dissolve easier. Stir vigorously to help it dissolve.
  6. I don’t add any sugar because I think it’s sweet enough from the sweetened condensed milk, but feel free to add some if you like it sweeter.
  7. Add milk of your choice to taste.
  8. Put ice in each glass, pour and enjoy!
