There are two types of Thai iced tea, cha yen — with milk — and cha dum yen — without, but either way you make it, use Ceylon tea, if possible. Other types often have food coloring in the mix and just don’t give what Ceylon does: Thai tea’s classic dark orange, smooth character. Its sweet, frothy side comes from the amount of sugar and dairy you use, as well as how you pour. For more froth, you just need a few back-and-forth pours.
