Hong Kong Milk Tea

One of the best things about Hong Kong cafes aside from the delicious food is the Hong Kong milk tea. I had a serious addiction to this milk tea and I would often order it at cafes or from tea houses. In Vancouver, it costs anywhere from $2 to $4 for milk tea and after a while, the costs add up.

Then I discovered that I could make my own at home for a fraction of the price. On a sunny day like today, this is a delicious treat that cannot be beat.

2 orange pekoe tea bags (I like Lipton Yellow Label tea)
1 cup boiling water
2 tsp sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp honey
Ice cubes

1. Steep the tea bags in hot water until the tea is dark red, about 3 to 5 minutes. Discard tea bags.

2. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and honey into the tea until it dissolves. Allow the drink to cool before adding ice cubes. Note: If you add the ice cubes immediately after steeping, this will melt the ice and dilute your drink. It is best to allow the tea to cool to room temperature before adding ice cubes or refrigerate after it cools slightly and allow it to chill.
