First of all, try to get a pack of Thai tea which is available at most Thai grocery. You may also want to get two cans of sweetened milk (available in most oriental grocery).
Soak about one and a half cups (US) in a regular size pitcher (the size used for draft beer in the bar) of boiling water. Stir it well for about half a minute. Drain it. You should get a dark brown tea liquid. Add the milk. Stir well. If you like, you may add some coffee-mate cream (about 1/2 cup). Leave to cool down to room temperature. Serve with ice (which fills to about 3/4 of the glass). The right color should be dull orange.
Please note that Thai tea does not easily soaked. To use the coffee maker may not work as some part of it may remain untouched.
