5 cups water
6 bags black tea or red Thai tea, or 1 1/2 tablespoons loose tea – you want to use a good quality tea for the best flavor. Try Ceylon, Assam or Keemun.
2 star anise – you can add more or less to taste. These are very strong if you buy them fresh. So go slow.
3 whole cloves – same with the cloves. I am not a huge fan of cloves, so I usually go light here.
2 teaspoons vanilla – Have a vanilla bean pod you want to use? Scrape it down and use it here.
2 tablespoons sugar – This drink is very sweet even without the sugar. So I suggest adding this to taste later.
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk – Go vegan by replacing the sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk with cream of coconut and coconut milk.
