One of my favourite drinks when I'm holidaying in Bangkok would be Thai Milk Tea. If you've been to Thailand, you'll know how hot the weather can be! And amidst the sweltering heat and relentless shopping, an ice cold glass of creamy Thai tea always did the trick for me.
When we were conceptualising recipes for our new launches, we thought, "Hey why not we incorporate Thai tea into our desserts?". Thus, came the birth of our Thai tea white chocolate loaf cakes and Thai tea cheesecake brownies. We find that using the original Thai Tea leaves from Cha Tra Mue gave our bakes the best taste and fragrance, so all our baking kits use them, but other alternatives work too! The tea leaves can be found direct from their store or sites such as Redmart and Shopee.
And needless to say, the recipe testing sessions involved a lot of Thai tea drinking. Here's how we made it – check out the recipe below to make your very own cup of refreshing Thai Milk Tea.

Add a straw and voilà, you have yourself a delicious cup of Thai Iced Tea! Enjoy!
