Cold-brewed Thai iced tea?

I recently found a bag of Thai tea leaves to make the traditional thai iced tea. I wanted to use my Toddy so that I could cold brew the tea, but I was very uncertain about the proportions. I found almost nothing on the internet, and there was a huge variety of proportions in what I did find. I ended up just going with the proportions listed on the back of the bag, which I had a feeling would not be right. It was 30 grams to 4 cups of water. I doubled it and let it sit overnight but I can already tell it's not concentrated enough (esp since for the Thai tea you are supposed to make it super concentrated and dilute with condensed milk). Does anyone have any thoughts on how much tea: water I should be using for cold brewing in the toddy?
