Hong Kong-Style Milk Tea

Nicknamed “Silk Stocking Milk Tea”, this milk tea is usually made from black tea leaves filtered with a sackcloth bag and then combined with condensed or evaporated milk. The tea is sometimes boiled several times to intensify the flavor. Quality is judged by the smoothness and froth of the tea.

A hot milk tea commonly served in Malaysia and Singapore. The name comes from the pouring process used during preparation. The blend of black tea and condensed or evaporated milk is poured back and forth repeatedly between two vessels from a height, producing a frothy top and plenty of entertainment for onlookers. Brewers even showcase their skills in competitions, where they drag a long stream of tea above the heads of patrons.
