"Easy Thai Iced Tea, with two methods to prepare. Using the Pantai Thai Tea Mix gives that orange color you see in Thai restaurants, as well as that hint of vanilla. Its color comes from food coloring. If you want to avoid that dye, you can use the tea bag method, but you won't get that little hint of vanilla. But it's still goooood! With either method, you want the tea to steep for a long period. The stronger the tea, the better the finished product. Instead of half-and-half, you can use different creamers; sweetened condensed milk (omit the sugar in the tea), coconut milk, milk, etc.. From White on Rice Couple"
