This milk tea is not only delicious, but also soothing and simple to make! It's a choice drink for a cold day or just for sitting around.
I got the original recipe from the Inside Motherhood blog while looking for a simple milk tea recipe that didn't require condensed milk or evaporated milk, since I didn't want to buy new materials. Even though it's the end of August, Seattle's weather has been rainy and cold and awesome- er, I mean, dismal... -so this drink has been a constant to keep me comfortable.
I made some modifications because I didn't find the original recipe to be quite strong enough for me. Feel free to modify this recipe to your own tastes. It's fairly flexible!
Step 1: What you'll need
Here's what you'll need:
*A glass or mug
*A small sauce pot
*Black tea (Try not to use flavored black tea, as it's probably not as strong. Use strong black tea because the milk and sugar will overpower it. I use two tea bags to get a more defined tea taste, but you can use less or more depending on how strong you want it. These teabags are Twining's English Breakfast tea.)
*Milk, obviously. I use non-fat/skim milk because it's what I'm used to. I'm not sure what it would be like with another type of milk.
*Ground cinnamon or nutmeg, or both!
