Let’s make Milk Tea!


Mahigit sampung taon ko nang iniinom tong drink na to.. hindi ko din maintindihan pero humaling na humaling ako sa lasa nya :)) yun nga lang habang lumilipas ang panahon, pamahal sya ng pamahal T_T natatandaan ko dati asa P36 lang ata sya nung una ko sya nadiskubre eh ngayon mahigit P50 na ata sya.. haha talk about price hike! so anyway.. ayun nadiskubre ko, madali lang pala sya gawin :> tinignan ko yung ingredients at sakto meron ako nun dito sa bahay ^_^ puro extract nga gamit dun sa nasa bote so naisip ko, why not use the real thing? dava? eh di mas madami ka pa magagawa!

here’s what you need:

1 tea bag of barley tea

2 tea bags of black tea (you’ll need two kase malaki yung tea bag ng barley, para mabalanse yung lasa)

powdered milk (i used bear brand on my first atempt, it went well… yun nga lang i havnt mastered the correct ratio for this, siguro dapat konti lang ang lagay)

about 500mL of hot water and 500mL of cold water

sugar (measure according to your preference)

here’s what to do:

steep the barley and black tea in 500mL hot water, wait for it to cool down then transfer the mixture sa 500mL of cold water.  set aside for a few minutes along with the tea bag para mailabas pa ng husto yung flavors na natira dun sa bag. take out the bag, then add the powdered milk and sugar 😀 then add some ice (if you want) or chill it in the refrigerator until it’s ready to be served! you now have 1Liter of your very own version of the “mine shine” milk tea! you can get creative if you want by putting some black sago pearls! ^_^ nyam nyam nyam!
