    6 cups of water
    8 Thai tea bags (found in most Asian food stores) or any other good quality
    orange pekoe tea
    4 tablespoons sugar
    4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons ground cardamom
    2 star anise seeds
    12 mint leaves for garnishing
    1 cup evaporated milk or half and half milk
    Crushed ice


Bring the water to a boil, put the tea and ground cardamom in a teapot and pour
the water over the tea. Let the tea steep for 5 minutes, then discard the tea
bags and let the tea cool to lukewarm. Fill four 12 ounce highball glasses
half-way to the rim with crushed ice and then fill two-thirds full with tea.
Into each glass, add 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup
evaporated milk or half and half. Mix well. Garnish the top of each glass with 3
mint leaves and serve.

you can use coconut milk instead of dairy milk, too, which is delicious but higher in fat.

    This looks wonderful! And it would be easy to adapt with Splenda and fat-free half-and-half. Can't wait to try it! - 3/20/15
