If you thought that the only way to enjoy milk tea was the British way, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Lots of cultures have embraced milky tea and there are a number of ways to enjoy it. Let us tell you about three of the most popular.

TEA LATTE 

Just like café lattes, tea lattes are made with steamed milk. For a more classic flavor, use black tea. But if you fancy something a little different, you could try Lipton® Enticing Chai or Earl Grey teabags for a more delicate taste.

HOW TO MAKE TEA LATTE

  1.  Add the teabag of your choice to a cup. 
  2. Boil the water, then pour it over the teabag.
  3. Let the tea steep for at least 5 minutes to get the strongest flavor possible.
  4. While your tea is brewing, heat a half cup of milk either by microwaving for 45 seconds (settings vary between machines) or by heating in a pan until it’s steaming.
  5. Transfer the hot milk to a jug and use a milk frother to get that extra-fluffy, foam effect. The desired amount should be about ½ inch thick on top of the milk.
  6. Remove the infuser or teabag from your cup and pour in the milk.
  7.  Add an optional dash of honey or sugar for extra sweetness.


 

MILK TEA THE BRITISH WAY

Sixty-five million Brits can’t be wrong, and they believe there’s only one way to make ‘a proper’ cup of tea – and that’s with milk. What’s more, it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a kettle, a mug and five minutes to spare. Then just follow these few simple steps.

  1. Add a Lipton® Black teabag to your favorite cup.
  2. Boil water and pour over the teabag.
  3. Wait 3 to 5 minutes for tea to brew, without stirring or sqeezing the teabag.
  4. Remove the teabag and pour in a dash of milk. Note: milk should act as a flavor-enhancer, so you only need enough to add creaminess. Too much milk will mask the taste of the tea. Judge it by the change of color as you add the milk and aim for an even tan shade – a very pale brown means you’ve probably poured in too much.
  5. Stir with a spoon to blend evenly.  


For both of the above methods you can use soy or almond milk instead of cows’ milk.


SWEET ICED MILK TEA

Sliced lemons and ice cubes are not the only way to enjoy iced tea, oh no. Have you ever tried sweet iced milk tea? With its indulgent dairy creaminess, it can make the perfect treat on a hot summery day.

  1. Follow instructions 1 to 3 from the British method above, except use two teabags instead of one to intensify the tea flavor.
  2. Add a dash of condensed milk to taste. Note, condensed milk is very rich, so use sparingly according to your diet.
  3. Fill a glass ½ to ¾ full with ice cubes or crushed ice.
  4. Pour your tea over the ice to fill the glass then enjoy immediately.


One final idea? Add a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon at the end of any of these recipes to give your drink a spicy kick.
