What is Thai Iced Tea?

Strongly brewed spiced black tea is mixed with half and half and sweetener to create a bright and unique refreshing drink made popular in Thailand.

It is traditionally sweetened with condensed milk which we replaced with a monkfruit/erythritol blend sweetener.  Same taste, sugar-free, low carbs!

What kind of tea should I use to make Thai iced tea?

I have found that Thai tea bags and loose leaf both work great.  Just make sure you are getting just the plain tea and not the pre-mixed Thai tea powder that already includes sugar.

Can I pre make Thai iced tea in a large batch?

You can absolutely triple or quadruple this recipe and keep it in the refrigerator to enjoy it all week long.

Tips for making this Thai Iced tea recipe?

  • Make sure you get either the Thai tea bags or Thai tea loose leaf that have not been pre-mixed with sugar or milk powder.  Click on the pictures below for reference.
  • If you prefer, you can also use heavy cream to cut even more carbs.
  • Aim for a strong brew, at least 5 minutes to ensure a deep tea flavor.
  • If using loose leaf tea, use a bottom tea dispenser for hassle free clean up.

  1. I made this with hwc and it’s not as thick as I’m used to with regular Thai Iced Tea. Is half and half thicker?

      Hi Ailene! Half n half is not thicker than HWC, but the only thai tea that I have had is pretty thin, so I’m not sure what ingredient they are putting into the drink to make it thicker.
