How to Prepare a Cup of Thai Tea?

This is a recipe for cha yen, cha nom yen, or cha yen sai nom, a creamy style of Thai iced tea served in most Thai restaurants in America. While many Thai iced tea blends use a low-quality powder or syrup, this original recipe uses only high-quality black tea and spices, with no artificial additives. Because the color comes from a dye added to Thai tea mixes, your Thai tea will not be vivid orange.

Real Thai iced tea is made with black tea, spices, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk, much like hot Thai tea.
