In Hong Kong, this milk tea is often served at popular cafes with national food (cha chaan tengs) along with tasty dishes like toasts and scrambled eggs. Milk tea, otherwise known as "silk stocking" tea, is traditionally made with very strong black tea and evaporated milk. It may be served either warm or cold depending upon your preferences and taste.
Start with brewing tea. Pour 1 liter of hot boiling water into a pot. Add 3-4 tablespoons of black tea leaves. Choose the amount of spoons, depending upon how strong you would like your tea to be. Bring it down to a simmer for about 4-6 minutes.
Strain the tea leaves to get black tea.
Fill about 1/3 of each cup with evaporated milk. It is recommended to use 2 parts of tea and 1 part of milk, but you can adjust the amount to your taste.
Pour the tea into the cups.
Add sugar to your taste. Stir the milk tea well. Serve hot or cool. Enjoy!
