I brewed it for 2 hours and it taste just like the restaurant now! I used 1 cup of tea, 8 cups of water, 1 T cardamon seeds, 2 star anise, and 3 cloves and a light simmer for 2 hours. Make sure to keep the water level in check, so it doesn’t reduce. You want to remain with 8 cups water. Once it’s done, I used a coffee filter with a strainer and put in a pitcher with a cup of sugar and lime juice (2-4 limes). Stir and serve over ice!

Very good Thai tea! I’ve had other brands, and this one is likable. It’s pumped with food dyes, which all of the real thai teas have. I haven’t had the Por Kawn brand yet, so I don’t know if this is truly the best. But my favorite local Laos restaurant used this brand, and I got addicted to it. I hate it with the condensed milk, I always added fresh lime juice instead.
I always threw in extra star anise, cardamon when I brew it, just taste better that way. Next time I brew it, I will do it the traditional method where you simmer it for 2 hours!
