Thai Iced Tea
7 cups filtered water
7 cardamom pods, smashed
10 bags black tea
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
Combine the water and cardamom pods in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
Turn off the heat, add the tea bags and stir gently.
Steep for 10 minutes, then remove the tea bags.
Add the sugar and condensed milk and stir with a wooden spoon until all of the sugar is dissolved.
Allow to cool.
Remove 1 1/2 cups of the cooled tea mixture from the saucepan and pour this into an ice cube tray.
Freeze for at least 4 hours.
Strain and refrigerate the remaining tea.
When ready to serve, divide the tea ice cubes between four glasses.
Fill the glasses with the chilled tea mixture, leaving a little extra space at the top.
Top each glass off with 2 tablespoons of the half-and-half.
