Ever live somewhere Thai Ice Tea is nearly impossible to find?
Thai ice tea - a sweet milky tea concoction colored brilliantly orange, is hard to be found in this area of the world (Stockholm). I would step in and out of Thai restaurants (there are like six in my neighborhood) and ask for Thai ice tea and they would shake their heads at me and my limited Thai vocabulary.
I finally found it
Turns out I'm too lazy to take a pix of the tea I'm drinking now, but here's a picture of it from a former post.
I seep about four teaspoons of Thai tea with 3 teaspoons of sugar, then I strain it with some paper towel or cheesecloth-like item (it will get stained orange though, to note), pour it over ice, add unsweetened condensed milk, and then add water until it's suitably thinned.
There is a distinct danger of drinking too many Thai ice teas in a row when it's suddenly so accessible.
