Thai Tea Frappe Recipe

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

This week I have been totally craving the tastes of Thailand. So Last night I went all out and made us a scrumptious Sweet & Sour Stirfry (recipe coming soon) paired with our favourite thai drink, "Cha Yen" (Thai Iced Tea), frappe style!

Its made from a strong brewed red ceylon tea, ours we bought in Thailand so its the real deal. I'm not sure if it's available to buy in North America but I did see you can buy it on Amazon, or an alternative could be Teavana's, "Cha Yen Thai Black Tea," (but I haven't tested that).

I used my espresso machine to brew my tea so as an alternative all you need to do is brew your tea in a cup of boiling water with a tea ball or just strain the leaves out when its done steeping. (Steep for at least five minutes)

So here's what you need:

2 Tsp Thai Tea
2-3 Tsp Sugar
1/2 Cup whole milk
Ice (6 to 8 cubes)

Brew about 2 to 3 ounces of tea.
Stir in sugar to hot tea (important... I alway forget, sugar doesn't dissolve so well in cold liquid)

Add mixture to blender, along with milk and ice. Mix it all up, adjust ingredients (often I find I need to add more tea to give it more flavour). If your on the ball you could prepare thai tea ice cubes as an extra bonus of flavour while the frappe melts.

For an added sweetness, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and enjoy!
