Coconut Iced Tea - Thai Style

Coconut Iced Tea - Thai Style

If you have ever eaten Thai food, you have most likely had "Thai Iced Tea." It is strong, sweet and extremely delicious. The drink also has a great presentation, with the coconut milk swirling around and mixing with the bright orange color of the tea. While I truly enjoy a traditional Thai-style iced tea, I have added some of my own twists that bring out the natural taste of coconut while cutting the sweetness a touch. This iced tea recipe is delicious and absolutely wonderful on a really hot summer day.

What you will need:

  • 4 teaspoons Coconut Pouchong Tea
  • 1 Star Anise
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Vanilla Bean
  • 4 cloves
  • A large teapot (must hold 4 cups)
  • A pitcher
  • 4 cups of ice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk (12oz can)

Steps to take:

  1. Heat your water until it boils
  2. Put the tea in your teapot
  3. Add the Star Anise, Cinnamon, Vanilla Bean and cloves to the teapot
  4. Fill the teapot with 4 cups boiling water
  5. Steep for 5 minutes
  6. Strain the teapot into the pitcher
  7. Add sugar and stir until it dissolves
  8. Fill the pitcher with ice
  9. Add the evaporated milk and stir
  10. Some may want to add a bit more sugar to taste
  11. Drink and be merry!


This recipe will give you an iced tea that is coconut-y, tangy and rich. And, most importantly, it will be one of the most refreshing things you will ever drink!
