In a small pot bring water to a boil. Pour hot water over thai tea mix and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain out loose tea and discard. Weigh out 500 g of tea and then whisk in sweetened condensed milk and calcium lactate gluconate.
Pour thai tea mixture into reverse spherification mold and leave in the freezer overnight or until frozen solid.
Create Warm Setting Bath
In a container weigh out 500g distilled water and blend in 3.5g of perfected sodium alginate. Let settle until all bubbles have dissipated.
In a small saucepan add water/sodium alginate mixture, place on low heat and warm to 130°F.
Remove thai tea spheres from the freezer and place spheres in the warm alginate bath. Leave the spheres in the bath for 2-4 minutes. Remove spheres from the bath and place in distilled water.
Create Coconut Fluid Gel
In a saucepan add in water and sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved. Whisk in coconut powder, super agar, and xanthan. Whisk until combined. Bring to a simmer.
Place coconut gel into a heat proof container and allow it to fully cool.
Once the gel is cooled, place it into a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.
