Thai Iced Tea
Summer is in full swing and we’re getting ready for our first summer vacation. I can’t wait, I’m counting down the days. We’re leaving soon and will be taking an 8 day cruise to the southern part of the Caribbean with Carnival. I just can’t wait to have a break from cooking for my family and cleaning the house for so long.
While we wait, we’re spending afternoons lounging by the pool sipping tea. I’ve made Bubble Tea, Southern Sweet tea, Iced Chai Tea and my husband’s favorite – Thai Iced Tea. I use to think the only way to get good Thai Tea was to order it at my favorite Thai restaurant, but I’ve recently found out through the ease of Amazon, great Thai tea is something anyone can make at home in no time at all.
I went to Amazon and ordered a Thai Iced Tea Traditional Restaurant Style,16 oz (1LB.). It has the directions on the bag. Just add the tea leaves to hot water, let it brew, and then strain. If you don’t have a tea strainer, this is the one I use, Teaze Over the Cup Tea Infuser. I just add the sugar and leaves to the infuser, then pour in the hot water. Once it’s done, you place the infuser on top of your glass of ice and out comes the tea. Add a little milk or cream and your Thai Iced Tea is done!
Speaking of milk and cream, I’ve recently partnered with The REAL Seal to bring you some great recipes, like this Thai Iced Tea with REAL dairy products. Did you know that The REAL® Seal is the only assurance that what you are buying is made with the wholesome goodness of U.S.-produced cow’s milk? When you buy only products with the REAL® Seal, you can trust that you are buying only products or foods made from cows milk produced in the U.S. Milk and dairy foods are a core part of a healthy diet recommended by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). The DGA recommends 3 servings of low-fat or fat-free milk or milk products for those 9 years or older, 2.5 servings for those 4-8 years old, and 2 servings for those 2-3 years old. Americans are currently consuming about 2 dairy servings per day on average (1.8).
Real dairy makes a difference!
