1 can evaporated milk

Yield: Approximately 8 servings

  4. Pour the tea through a coffee filter or a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher.

  5. Add 1 cup of sugar to the tea and stir to dissolve.

  6. Cool to room temperature, and then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  7. When ready to serve, fill the desired number of tall glasses with crushed ice.

  8. Pour the tea into the glasses, stopping about an inch from the top of the glass.

  9. Add 3-4 tablespoons of evaporated milk over the ice in each glass.

You can decrease the amount of sugar, just be aware that the sweetness of this tea is part of its character and scrumptiousness…

For a different flavor, consider adding in half-and-half to the recipe, or substituting the evaporated milk with half-and-half.
