I got this from a former co-worker…and it she’s right — it tastes like the stuff in restaurants.
You have to have access to an Asian grocery store to get the tea ingredients. In San Francisco, try the “New May Wah” grocery store on Clement Street.
1 c. loose Thai tea
1/3 c. jasmine tea
8 c. boiling water
1 c. sugar for sweetness (vary according to taste)
Add the tea to the boiling water and keep at a low boil for 5 minutes.
Pour into a pitcher and chill.
Add a little Half & Half into each serving to taste.
I was not able to find loose tea, and I do not have a tea filter, so I bought bagged tea. Check the portions on the box, but I used 8-9 bags of the Thai tea, and 3 bags of the jasmine. I removed the string & tag before putting the bags into a pitcher, and then I poured the boiling water into the pitcher. Worked for me, and got a thumbs up from a friend.
