More than a year ago, I wrote the “prequel” to this blog entry. But you know, once a milk tea drinker, always a milk tea drinker (except of course if you’re lactose intolerant, but you get what I mean!). So here I am, more than a year after, sharing with you the milk tea places and other drinks I’ve tried that I haven’t included in the prequel (which by the way, you can read by clicking HERE).
I do have a disclaimer, though. The pictures I used in this entry are entirely borrowed from Google, so I don’t take any credit for “taking” them (no pun intended). After all, I just wanted to show you the brands’ trademarked cups or whatever. What I do take credit for is my recommended drinks. I can assure you that EVERY DRINK I mention here has been tried and tested by moi. 🙂 So let’s make this short and simple again, shall we? Here are my recommendations:
Try their Royal Milk Tea
2. Bubble Tea
Try their Strawberry Milk Tea
3. Cebu Pacific’s In-flight Milk Tea
You can only choose from two flavors, original or taro,
but both taste good!
4. Jamba Juice
Try their Strawberries Wild
5. Gong Cha
Try their Earl Grey Milk Tea
6. Happy Lemon
Try their Matcha with Adzuki Bean Mousse Spin
7. Moon Leaf
Try their Wintermelon Milk Tea
8. Pao Pao Xiao Chi
Try their Green Tea with Rock Salt and Cheese
9. Tea Farm
Try their Caramel Milk Tea
Homemade Milk Tea!!!
I usually use Twinings‘ English Breakfast Tea (which is the exact same tea that Queen Elizabeth II drinks, by the way — so this is definitely recommended! Haha!), any fresh milk available in our fridge, plus some sugar and ice.
Those are basically my “ingredients” and the “recipe” would actually depend on YOUR taste, so you can just adjust it to your liking. But here’s mine:
Step 1: I add hot water in my mug (which is about 16 fl oz) until it looks already half full.
Step 2: I then leave 1 tea bag of Twinings‘ English Breakfast Tea in my mug to steep. Wait for around 2-5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the tea flavor to be.
Step 3: Of course I remove the tea bag from the mug! But if you’ve already done that, add 5 tablespoons of milk or depending on how creamy you want your milk tea to taste. Stir.
Step 4: Now this is the tricky part — the sugar level. I usually put 2 teaspoons of sugar, but this will again depend on your preferred sweetness level. More stirring.
Step 5: I put lots and lots of ice! Hey, I just happen to love iced milk tea! But this is entirely OPTIONAL — you can always have hot/warm milk tea! 😉
The last step: KEEP CALM and DRINK UP!!!
And that’s it! But just remember, TO EACH HIS OWN. So please don’t blame me if you don’t like the things I mentioned in this post! Okay? Great! 😀
