Now you can skip the line at the coffee shop and enjoy Thai Iced Tea at home with this super-easy recipe that tastes like the authentic version of this beloved creamy and sweet Thai tea beverage!


  • 8 cups of water
  • 1.5 cups of thai tea mix
  • 1.5 cup of palm sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk (or half and half, coconut milk, whole milk)
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 stick of cinnamon


  1. Bring water to a boil and add the Thai tea mix. Add the star anise and cinnamon stick. Add the palm sugar and gently stir to completely dissolve sugar.
  2. Gently boil tea for about 3 minutes and remove from heat. Spoon out the anise and cinnamon stick.
  3. Allow the tea to steep for at least 30 minutes and to cool it down. The more concentrated the tea flavor, the better the Thai tea tastes.
  4. Strain the Thai tea mix using a fine strainer lined with cheesecloth, Set finished Thai tea aside to cool or refrigerate to chill.
  5. Fill glass with ice and pour in chilled Thai tea mixture (¾ of the glass) leaving enough room to fill in your milk (or other creamers).
  6. For an 8 oz. glass, add about 4 tablespoons of evaporated milk (or half and half) for a creamier flavor.
  7. You can make this ahead of time and have the Thai tea mix chilling in the fridge.
