thai iced tea- authentic recipe from scratch?!

Question: Thai iced tea- authentic recipe from scratch?
anybody got any thai iced tea recipes?
i'm not talking about the ones that just say "tea leaves, water, condensed milk, and ice."
i'm talking about real recipes, the ones that include cardamom, orange flower, star anise, cloves, etc.

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup Thai tea
1 coffee filter
4 cups water
Crushed ice or ice cubes to fill each glass
1 to 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk or half-and-half (3 to 4 tablespoons per glass)

In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil; simmer until the sugar is dissolved, 3 minutes; this will create a simple syrup. Pour into a pitcher and set aside.

Using a coffeemaker, add the Thai tea to the coffee filter/basket. Brew the tea with 4 cups of water.
Allow the tea to cool in the carafe.

Pour the Thai tea liquid into the pitcher with simple syrup. Stir to make sure the tea and simple syrup is incorporated. Cool to room temperature, cover and chill until serving time.
Fill 4 tall glasses with crushed ice and add tea to 3/4 full. Top off each glass with 3 to 4 tablespoons evaporated milk.

Serve with a spoon or straw so your guests can swirl the mixture themselves…

3/4 C black tea leaves (approximately 3 oz.)
star anise, ground tamarind, cardamom and/or other spices, to taste (optional)
6 C boiling water
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C sweetened condensed milk
1 C evaporated milk (most traditional), whole milk, half and half, or coconut milk
