Tried this as sort of a latte, sort of a Hong Kong style milk tea.

Basically that just means that I steeped 1.5 tsp. of leaf in boiling water for 2 minutes, added an equal amount of evaporated milk (had to use some up) and let it boil for another 3 minutes, strained, and added honey to sweeten.

I find it interesting, for sure – an orangey creamy honey like drink that only indirectly resembles the tea it originated from. I haven’t experienced authentic milk tea so I have no idea how accurate it is, but it’s hitting the spot on a cold day.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
