What does summer mean to you? Hot, lazy or nothing grow in the garden? We start the beginning of the year in the middle of summer and we have been having long hot summer this year with the temperature over 30c most of the days. Since it has been so dry with no rain, bushfire is happening in many places. You just want to hide yourself in the shade most of the time. Sitting at the veranda relaxing, I enjoy this refreshing iced milk tea to help to ease the heat. This is the type of tea you'll get at asian cafe using condensed milk and evaporated milk instead of fresh milk. Some people like to mix the tea with coffee and called it yuen-yang (鴛鴦), a bit like the mocha only it is a mix of coffee and chocolate.
Asian Style Iced Milk Tea
(make 1 tall glass)
Put hot water into a mug about 2/3 full with a ceylon tea bag. Let it rests till the tea is cool down a little and fully infused. Pour 1 1/2 tablespoon of condensed milk and 1 tablespoon of evaporated milk into a tall glass, add the tea and stir till well combined. Fill another tall glass with ice and pour the tea into the other glass and serve immediately. Enjoy!
