Thai-Tea-Recipe-@natashakotto-3Thai iced tea is one a drink I love but do not indulge in often enough. I only order it once in a blue moon when I end up at a Thai restaurant. It only takes one sip to instantly remind me of the joy this simple drink brings. Until recently Thai tea has been a special treat, because it’s something I do not make myself. The last time I sipped a glass, my mouth happened to be on fire from my favorite Thai dish at Bangkok Station. The tea immediately soothed the burn from my chili spice overload. 

Since I’ve been craving Thai tea more often, I thought I’d finally learn how to make it myself. I came across a simple and delicious recipe that includes cardamon, anise, and cloves. The combination of spices creates a bold flavored tea that is softly sweetened with creamer creating one tasty temptation.
