Lupicia’s monthly newsletter also came with a milk tea recipe. This tea was actually one of their recommended teas for milk tea, so I decided to follow their recipe and have a “real” milk tea.
The main difference is a higher milk to water ratio, with milk making up the bulk of the liquid, and a relatively large amount of tea steeping in a small amount of water first. I have to say, it turned out really nicely. I could get behind this. This tea definitely has the strength to stand up to a milk tea. It didn’t really need sugar (it wasn’t bitter at that point) but I added a touch anyway because I like milk teas slightly sweetened. I will definitely do this again!
Steep 3 tsp of tea in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 3 minutes.
Heat 1 cup of milk to close to boiling.
Strain tea into milk, sweetened if desired.
