    Sharlene~W's Note:

    There are almost as many ways of making Thai tea as there are Thai restaurants. I love the richness the cardomom, cloves and cinnamon add. You can also skip the sugar and use sweetened condensed milk in place of the half-and-half. No other tea will substitute for Thai tea--you can find Thai tea in Asian markets, or if you are really lucky, in the Asian section of your grocery store. Prep time does not include chill time.

      Wonderful! This exactly the same tea I have been served in Thai recipes and have tried to duplicate for some time. Really delicious and unique. The color is gorgeous - the orangey color of the tea topped with the creamy half n half makes a striking presentation in a clear glass. Note: Only Thai tea leaves will produce the unique color and taste. I found mine in an Asian market in a giant bag, but have also seen them for sale in online asian markets.

      Just a little note, intead of adding sugar and half and half, a lot of Thai cooks (including my mom) just top this with sweetened condensed milk. I don't add cinnamon to my recipe, but otherwise it is the same as this one and is really DELICIOUS!

      Very good. I would recommend making twice the default amount listed here (6 servings), as it'll be consumed very quickly. I had great results with substituting sweetened condensed milk, ~2.5 Tbs. per serving, and reducing the sugar to ~5 Tbs. for six servings. This drink is absolutely necessary to survive Tom Yum Gai or Koong, the famous Thai Hot & Sour Soups.
