Thai Tea Ice Cream

This ice cream tastes just like a cup of Thai iced tea, but with a stronger tea kick. Serve with a slurp (or two) of sweetened condensed milk. If you want to remove all tea particles from the ice cream, strain the custard through a cheesecloth.

Unlike other ice cream bases, which often benefit from longer cooking to create a thicker custard, this recipe performs better with a thinner one. The tea flavor is more pronounced and the texture is glossier. Since the texture of a thinner custard is more difficult to keep over time, eat this ice cream the same day it's made.

Look for Thai tea in Asian groceries or online.
