Milk Tea

Tea, I am talking of the byproduct of the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, is a healthier alternative for coffee in terms of it’s caffein content which is lesser in tea.  Tea, not to mention, is also high in anti-oxidant.
Hot tea drink is very comforting specially on cold days and a refreshing cold beverage during hot weathers.

Below is a recipe for milk tea that can be made hot or cold.   We  also have made and posted in this blog a number (and still counting) of tea-based drinks.  Please check the beverages category

Ingredients :

Black Tea – 3 tea bags
Water, hot - 150 ml
Full Cream Milk (hot or cold) – 350 ml
Sugar – 2 tbsp

Preparation:


1.  Steep the tea bags in the hot water (follow directions on how ti steep your tea indicated in the box label).  Remove tea bags after
2.  Hot milk Tea :  heat the milk then add to the tea.  Mix together with the sugar then pour on 2 cups
3.  Cold milk Tea :  use cold milk. Mix the sugar with the warm tea.  Let the tea cool for a while.  In a blender, blend the cold milk and cold tea until the mixture is frothy.  Pour on 2 glasses with ice cubes.
- If you have no blender, just mix the cold milk and tea toget, put it in the fridge and cool it until it’s chilled. Pour on 2 glasses with ice cubes if you want it colder.

Enjoy a frothy smooth and delicious milk tea :-)
