Hong Kong style milk tea is super refreshing and easy to make at home. Poured over ice, it is especially nice for a treat on a summer's day. Use your favourite black tea bags if you don't have orange pekoe to hand.

IngredientsServes: 1

  • 2 orange pekoe tea bags
  • 250ml boiling water
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 4 teaspoons condensed sweetened milk
  • 3 teaspoons honey

MethodPrep:5min ›Extra time:5min soaking › Ready in:10min

  1. Steep the tea bags in hot water until the colour turns dark red, about 3 to 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags and let the tea cool.
  2. Combine the ice cubes, condensed milk and honey in a glass or cocktail shaker. Pour in the tea and mix well. (If the tea is still warm, the ice may melt; add more ice if desired.) A strong, flavourful milk tea is ready for you to enjoy.

Note

A good strong-flavoured tea is the key to making good milk tea. Add more honey to taste if you like a sweeter tea. If you have a martini shaker, you may use it to mix the milk tea.

I tried this drink and really liked it but way too sweet for me. Instead of using the condensed milk, I used regular whole milk...loved it.-23 Jan 2010

Thanks for the recipe! I haven't had tea like this since I was in Japan, the taste is pretty much exactly the same, and brings back some great memories. I'm not much for sweet drinks so I used whole milk, and added honey, tasted, added, etc. until I was happy with it.-25 Jan 2010

Loved this tea. I used a Ceylon black tea instead of the standard Orange pekoe. Very nice way to use some of an opened can of sweetened condensed milk. I most definitely will make this again. Thanks Tao for submitting this.-24 Jan 2010
