I typically take a tea bag, add some agave sweetener or honey, drop in the ice cubes and call it a day. BUT today, I was inspired to search for a real nice iced tea that was also simple and stumbled upon this Hong Kong Style tea from Tao in Seattle. click on that link for his original recipe. Below is my variation.
You will need:
- Steep the tea bags in hot water until the color turns dark red, about 3 to 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags and let the tea cool.
- Combine the ice cubes, sweetened condensed milk, and honey in a glass or cocktail shaker. (Here's a creative use for your martini shaker!!) Pour in the tea and mix well. (If the tea is still warm, the ice may melt; add more ice if desired.) A strong, flavorful milk tea is ready for you to enjoy.
