Thai Lime Tea ชามะนาว (cha manao)

  • Author: Pailin Chongchitnant
  • Yield: Serves 1


  • 2 Tbsp Thai tea leaves
  • 1 cup of off-the-boil water
  • 45 tsp sugar
  • Juice from half a juicy lime
  • A lot of ice

Ingredients & Kitchen Tools I Use


Let Thai tea leaves steep in the hot water for 3-5 minutes and strain. You can steep the tea in a cloth filter or just in a cup and then pour it through a paper filter. To the strained tea, add the sugar and stir to mix. Let the tea cool off for a few minutes; or you can add an ice cube if you’re in a rush.  Note: If you’re making a big batch, you can mix the tea up to this point ahead of time and store in the fridge.

When ready to serve, fill your glass with ice, squeeze the lime over the ice, and pour in the mixed tea. Taste, and add more lime if needed. Enjoy!
