Being a big fan of Thai cuisine, I am always on a lookout for a good restaurant serving good authentic Thai food. Being a vegetarian, the choice is limited but I just love the simplicity, aroma, and flavor of the food which taste divine with coconut milk gravy.
And when I am having a Thai curry, Thai Iced tea is a must. It complements the food wonderfully and I just can't resist not having it. I love making Thai iced tea at home in the instant pot as I do not have to monitor it.

Put a cup of crushed or cubes of ice in a tall glass or even a mason jar. Pour the tea liquid over the ice, and then add sweetened condensed milk as per taste along with a few tablespoons of evaporated milk.
Give it a gentle stir using a straw and it is ready to be enjoyed. I like to use stainless steel straws, which is an environment friendly choice, and have been using ever since my kids were younger and used to drink milk with a straw.
