Thai Iced Tea Mix

From Sarah Lipoff, POPSUGAR Food

Thai Iced Tea Mix


  1. 1 cup loose-leaf black tea
    3 whole star anise
    6 cloves
    4 cardamon pods
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 teaspoon ground tamarind
    1/4 cup sugar (optional)
    1/4 cup Silk® Vanilla Cashewmilk


For the Thai Tea Mix

  1. Place the star anise, cloves, cardamon pods, and cinnamon stick in a plastic bag and gently pound with a rolling pin to break up the spices into smaller chunks.
  2. Place the loose-leaf tea and the ground tamarind into a paper bag and add the spices, shaking to disperse.
  3. Measure and add the sugar, if desired, which gives this drink a sweet kick and dissolves once the hot water hits. Now you have your very own Thai tea mix to make whenever you wish!

For Brewing

  1. Place 2 tablespoons of the mix in the base of an individual French press or in a tea ball.
  2. Cover with 2 cups boiling water then steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour over ice then top with 1/4 cup Silk Cashewmilk. Leave the milk at the bottom of the glass or stir to incorporate.
