Thai iced tea... [Jun. 6th, 2007|09:00 am]
Verminius Rex
I've had Thai iced tea mix forever, although I only learned that you steep it in a 1:4 or 1:6 ratio recently. I just replaced our French press the other day, so I'm tweaking the Thai iced tea recipe for max flavor. In a 12 cup French press (not sure the true ounceage yet) I use 1.25-1.5 cups Thai iced tea grounds, steep 3 minutes and pour into another container with .5-.75 cups sugar. So far the tweaking continues, but this mornings brew tastes good. I think upping the grounds back to 1.5 along with the .75 cups sugar will be the next brew, so I can balance the strength of the tea with the sweetness factor. I also should try honey instead of the sugar, it's a subtle flavor difference. After that I'll tackle the creamer ratio, which is a whole nother factor entirely.

You can find Thai iced tea grounds at the Asian market, 23rd and Louisiana near Pet World.

Haveyou tried a simple syrup instead of the granulated sugar?

I mix it in with the hot tea anyway, so it all dissolves. The only reason to do honey over sugar is the slight difference in flavor.

Yum --

Any chance you could come up with a lower-carb version?
