Thai Tea Dry Mix
3tbspAssam Tea or Black Teafor a stronger flavour, use loose leaf tea
4tbspLapsang souchong Tea
Thai Tea Liquid Portion
2tbspSweetened Condensed Milk
Combine all "Thai Tea Dry Mix" ingredients. Place the Thai tea mix into a french press.
Bring water to a boil and pour it over the dry tea leaves. Steep the tea leaves for the desired strength of the brew. Tea usually takes less time to steep in the French press than coffee, but since it's black tea, give it 3 to 5 minutes for a more bold flavour.
Fill a mug with equal parts sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk and pour in 1 cup of the steeped Thai tea. For an 8 oz. mug, I like to use 2 tbsp of condensed milk and evaporated milk.
Optional: Warm-up 1/2 a cup of milk, froth it with a milk frother and top your Thai tea. Stir with a cinnamon stick and enjoy.
If you want a more stronger flavour from the Thai tea mix:
Bring water to boil and add the Thai tea dry mix. Gently boil tea for about 3 minutes and remove from heat. Allow tea to steep for at least an hour to concentrate the tea flavour. Once you're ready to make your hot Thai tea, just reheat it and strain the tea leaves using your french press or a strainer.
