Commonly known as Thai iced coffee, the drink is is very popular in Thai restaurants around the world.
The alias is derived from the Teochew dialect, spoken by the majority of Thai Chinese, indicating that oliang is original from the Chinese.
The term “o” means “black” and “liang” means “cold”. Oliang means “cold black”, a black iced java drink.
Its recipes vary. The preparation consists of a mixture of coffee, brown sugar, and various seeds and grains like cardamom, corn, soybeans, rice, and sesame grains.
- very strong regular Brazilian coffee, enough to brew 4 cups
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 subtle pinch ground cardamom
- 1 subtle pinch ground cloves
- 2 pinches ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
- crushed ice
- Add the spices to the ground coffee, and brew it
- When brewed, add the sugar and almond flavoring,
- Mix well and let cool to lukewarm.
- Fill four 12 ounce highball glasses half-way to the rim with crushed ice
- Fill two-thirds full with coffee; into each glass.
- Stir in about 1 tablespoon of heavy cream.
To achieve a layered effect, hold a spoon on top of the coffee and pour the cream slowly into the spoon so that the cream floats on top of the glass over the coffee.
Traditionally, oliang is brewed with a tungdtom, an oriental filter, a sock with a metal collar and grip to which a cloth bag is attached. We have a similar ancient traditional pour-over method in Brazil.
To make Thai Iced Coffee, prepare the filter and pour boiling water, over the coffee, through it and into a glass container. Allow the bag to steep for approximately 10 minutes, or until the coffee is strong. The Iced part is optional, but my preferred.
Oliang can be served with condensed or evaporated milk, and a simple sweetening syrup to taste.
