There are two styles of Thai iced tea: the one with milk called Cha Yen and the other one without milk called Cha Dum Yen. It is a made in a cotton tea sock from strongly-brewed tea; tea ingredients may include added orange blossom water, star anise, crushed tamarind seed or red and sometimes other spices as well. Condensed milk and sugar are mixed with the tea before pouring over crunchy ice and then topped with evaporated milk. The best is served in a plastic bag from street carts, and looks bright orange, but in a good way. Good to try and you might repeat on the next day!
