Dalgona is once again all the rage thanks to the phenom that is 'Squid Game'. 
Thai tea dalgona combines both of my favorite things, thai tea & coffee. It is so beloved, we serve it at Polaris Cafe [double-shot espresso w/ thai tea]. 
Why is it so amazing? Thai tea itself is strong in spices and vanilla that screams sweetness--now imagine adding it the rich bitterness of coffee. 
For Thai Tea Concentrate: 
  • 2 tbsp Loose Leaf Thai Tea [Oakland Tea Co's of course]
  • 1 cup boiling hot water [ 212c | 100f ]
  • 2 tbsp sugar [white sugar or raw sugar | you can also sub with monk fruit, stevia, agave, etc--but measurements will be different, adjust accordingly] 
  • 1/4 cup half&half or your choice of creamer [preferably something thicker, oat and coconut is a great alternative]
  • 1 cup ice
  • Tea bag or strainer [ Sometimes when I can't find any tea bags or strainer is in the sink, I would use a coffee filter or even just a paper towel] 
  1. If using a tea bag, put loose leaf tea inside bag. If not, pour hot water over loose leaf tea in cup. 
  2. Add sugar and mix. 
  3. Steep for 6-10 minutes. 
Notes: The longer the tea steeps, the stronger it will be. It will also give it a chance to cool down so the tea doesn't dilute too much when pouring over ice. 
For Dalgona [ Whipped Coffee] 
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee 
  • 1 tbsp sugar 
  • 2 tbsp hot water 
  1. Combine all the ingredients and either whip or use a frother. It can take up to 10 minutes to get to the fluffy consistency you see above. 


The Finale: 


  1. Add ice in drinking cup
  2. Pour the thai tea concentrate over ice 
  3. Add fluffy dalgona 
  4. Add half&half or choice of creamer 

Enjoy! Here's the 30 seconds video
