Backlog:

I’ve had this as a traditional thai iced tea using sweetened condensed milk (AMAZING) as well as coconut milk (tasty). Then I got a little experimental and tried it with some ginger ale instead of milk or coconut milk (quite good!)

I brewed it at double strength so it wouldn’t be weak tasting with the addition of the milk. This is key, I think, because the flavor of the tea is really well pronounced without tasting bitter or overpowering, it marries perfectly with the sweetened condensed milk in particular … this addition makes it taste EXACTLY like a Thai Iced Tea that I’d buy in a restaurant. Better even. I like that I can taste the subtle notes of vanilla and the cardamom and anise. It doesn’t taste overpowered by any of these spices, instead, they accent the flavor of a good, strong black tea.

This is easily the best Thai Iced Tea product that I can make at home. And based upon my experiences with it as an iced tea, I decided to up the rating a bit… I do love Thai Iced tea!

Mmmm…I think I have enough coconut milk in the fridge to try a similar Thai/rooibos blend.

Could something close be made using Harney and Sons Indian Spice?

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
