How to Make Hong Kong Milk Tea – Hong Kong Video



Hong Kong Milk Tea is the most ubiquitous drink of choice in the bustling south China metropolis and one of the most famous milk teas anywhere.

There is the classic British milk tea, the Teh Tarik and the Chai but for my taste, Hong Kong milk tea is up there with all of them and whenever I am in Hong Kong I have to get myself a cup.

But how can you make Hong Kong Milk tea without a trip over there? In this video, we go through the history of Hong Kong Milk tea and we try to create the perfect recipe for making it at home easily.

To make Hong Kong Fling Milk Tea you will need:

A bright, brisk and acidic chopped Ceylon Loose Leaf Tea
Optional: Empress Oolong (https://meileaf.com/p/tea-empc)
Optional: Fire Phoenix (https://meileaf.com/p/tea-firc)
Optional: Jujube Red Dates
Evaporated Milk
Optional: Egg Shell
Saucepan
Jug

To make an iced Hong Kong Milk Tea:
Make the hot tea as in this video but before adding milk, freeze in ice cube holders. When you are ready for an iced milk tea, load up a glass with iced-tea cubes and strain over a small amount of hot tea (or boiling water) – enough to melt most of the iced-tea cubes. Stir well and add more iced-tea cubes if necessary. Add milk (usually with some extra condensed milk for sweetness).

  2. Why audio poor in this audio? Distorted when you get loud especially at first part. Also plosives are bad sounding.

  4. I remember when I was young before true tea I would over steep like 15 Lipton original black teabags in 500ml of water with honey and whole milk. It's something I still enjoy when I'm feeling nostalgic.

  5. Fantastic! I once tried to make Hong Kong Iced Litchi Tea – and failed spectacularly. I am now inspired to try again, and again . . . until I succeed. Or until Mei Leaf takes up the cause πŸ™‚

  9. Made my own version of your recipe this morning with what I had and it turned out beautifully. I used Ceylon, Empress Oolong, and Butterfly Light. I didn’t have jujube but I relied a little on the chenpi for some citrus fruitiness. It was perfect with my breakfast.

  17. Sacrilege! πŸ˜‹
    However, that reminded me that my grandfather used to drink his tea with condensed milk – "Butterfly" brand if I remember correctly – but that was more than 50 years ago, I don't think he picked up the habit in Hong Kong!
