“The Little Black Book of Tea” by Mike  Heneberry

 Pinch of crushed star anise

1          drop red food coloring

2          Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

Crushed ice

2          cups strong brewed black tea, chilled

*Stir anise and food coloring into condensed milk and pour into 2 tall glasses.  Fill glasses with crushed ice; then cover with tea.  Stir once or twice-just enough for the milk to start to rise up into the tea.
