Hong Kong Milk Tea

Hong Kong milk tea as the name suggests originated in Hong Kong but has gained popularity all over the world. It is also known as pantyhose tea or silk stocking tea. Unlike the usual milk tea, this tea uses evaporated milk and hence has a different flavor. It is very easy to make at home and needs a very few ingredients. Let us look at the step-by-step recipe of this delicious beverage.

Recipe Notes

Instead of having it hot you can chill it and serve with ice.

This tea during British rule was made using Ceylon tea.

Some people also add eggshell to balance the acidity of tea. I have not tried it and like my tea as it is.
