thai tea dalgona on table

Here’s another delicious variation of the popular Dalgona Coffee. This is Dalgona Thai Tea and it’s perhaps my favorite Dalgona drink!

After discovering Dalgona Coffee drinks, I was a little obsessed. I love how easy it is to make and with just a few ingredients.

I’ve made Dalgona Coffee, Dalgona Chai, and Dalgona Matcha Green Tea.

I was sharing my pictures of Dalgona Coffee and then my cousin sent me a picture of Dalgona Thai Tea and my eyes lit up!

What??? I had NO idea that Dalgona can be made with tea!

I love Thai tea, although I have never successfully made it at home before. I did have Thai tea bags sitting in my pantry.

Tea Bag vs. Tea Mix

Originally, I bought the tea bags because they don’t have food coloring. And I’m all about being healthy and avoiding artificial ingredients.

I tried making Dalgona Thai Tea with the tea bags and it came out with a light Thai tea flavor. And the color was more like coffee than the signature orange color of Thai tea.

So I ordered Pantai Thai Tea mix from Amazon and began experimenting. The Thai tea mix is what restaurants use to make their Thai tea.

This Thai tea mix is SO fragrant with vanilla notes. The flavor is stronger, more pronounced, and full-bodied than the tea bags.

I feel like the tea mix has other ingredients besides just tea and food coloring but it doesn’t say so on the package.

Thai Tea Mix without Food Coloring

If you’re trying to avoid food coloring, there is another brand by Yim Tea, albeit a higher priced one, that doesn’t have food coloring.

Is this Dalgona Thai Tea recipe dairy-free?

Heck yes! I know a lot of people are dairy-free and this is one of the few Dalgona tea recipes that can be made dairy-free. The Dalgona mixture doesn’t have any dairy or cream so you can use a dairy alternative as your milk.
