Keto Thai Iced Tea Recipe

Our Thai Tea mix is from the Cha Thai Tea Mix bag. We reduced the amount of sweetener that they suggested, but you can definitely add more if you like your Thai Iced Tea to be sweeter. The finished and brewed Thai tea mix keeps well in the fridge. Brew the tea, strain, and then chill, storing in the fridge until you are ready to serve. This can be done several days ahead of time. The brewed thai tea lasts about 10 days in the fridge (without the half and half).
Sugar-free sweeteners: Sugar-free sweeteners have many different sugar substitution ratios (different between different kinds and even the same kind but different brands). Use the substitution ratio based off of the exact sweetener you are using (check the back of your packaging) to be equivalent to 3/4 cup of sugar, or sweetened to your personal preference.

Can You Make Thai Tea Ahead of time?

Absolutely yes! Like we mentioned earlier, this is how we prefer to do it because we want the thai tea mix to completely cool. It’s best that it’s cold before you add the ice. That way, the ice doesn’t melt and dilute the flavors of the thai tea. You can make this sugar free thai tea brew mix about 5 days ahead of time. Make sure to drink it within 5 days.

Why is Thai Tea Bitter?

The flavors of thai tea can be pretty strong and our ratio is the same of most restaurants. If you prefer your thai tea mix to be less bitter, steep it for less time or dilute it with more water or ice. Taste a little with the creamer. If you want it less bitter, just keep adding water or more creamer until you customize the flavors to your liking.
