I love drinking tea! Of the many types of teas out there, Thai Tea happens to be one of my favorite teas to drink. I know making Thai Tea on my own would be so much cheaper than visiting cafe tea shops, especially tempting since there are almost one on every block in the city of Westminster in OC. I have tried many ways to make Thai Tea, from using pre-made Thai Tea powder to using actual Thai Tea leaves. Thai Tea tastes so much better when using actual Thai Tea leaves. I also found an easy and quick way to make Thai Tea without having to boil water and steep the tea leaves.

This is where the coffee maker comes in. Lucky for me, I got a coffee maker for my wedding and had thought about giving it away because my husband and I do not drink coffee. However, I learned from a great friend of mine that the coffee maker is an awesome kitchen tool for making tea.

Thai Tea (Using a Coffee Maker), 3.7 out of 5 based on 22 ratings


  • 8 tablespoons Thai Tea leaves
  • 12 cups water
  • Evaporated milk (1/4 cup or less, to taste)
  • 1 to 1½ cups sugar (or to taste)
  • Ice cubes


1.  Fill your coffee maker with 12 cups of water.

2.  Place a coffee filter in your coffee maker. Put the Thai Tea leaves into the coffee filter and press “start” - the coffee maker will begin to brew the tea leaves. You will have freshly brewed Thai Tea in minutes (actual timing depends on your coffee maker).

3.  Pour sugar into a pitcher (my pitcher holds hot liquid) or a hot liquid container. Pour the brewed Thai Tea into the pitcher and stir to dissolve the sugar (adjust sugar to your taste).

4.  Add a handful of ice cubes in a cup, pour the Thai Tea in, and add evaporated milk to your taste. Refrigerate the rest of the Thai Tea to enjoy whenever you have cravings!
