So, I am in love with Japanese milks tea. But is costs around $2.50 per individual serving bottle when I buy it from the japanese food store by me. So I decided to figure out how to make it myself!

Its really simple! See how tasy it looks:



The recipe for this nice treat is on my new blog!

Tell me what you think!

edit: sorry about the link mix-up! I didn't know the rule about blog entry links.  Embarrassed

I love milk tea!  I make it for myself all the time.  I don't use condensed milk though.

I make really strong sweet tea (currently living in the south, this is what everyone drinks)  I just add regular milk and it is delicious!   

My roommates think it is gross looking but they don't know what they are missing.

LOL...this reminds me of when I stumbled upon a low budget version of Thai iced tea(which sounds like the exact same thing as Japanese milk tea) at McDonalds.  I took my friends straw out of her vanilla milkshake and used it to drink my iced tea and there was that weird "I've been here before..." feeling in my mouth.  I wonder if this would work with soy milk?

sounds yummy!!
I put milk, powder creamer, or liquid creamer in my tea sometimes... so this is definetely something i'm going to try.
(and this way.. no one else will drink my tea now!!)


have you tried flavoured teas? like maybe raspberry or green tea, etc?

Funny thing is I've been making this for months now, My husband is malaysian so they call this Teh tarik. I just bought the tapioca balls at the Asian market and plan to add them to this recipe Smiley

Wonderful recipe, almost too good since my daughter drank most of the 1st batch.  With that in mind I ran out and bought the lowfat sweetened condensed milk and will use that for my next batch.  I like the tapioca balls idea too.  I think I'll add those to my next batch too.  This will become a staple around here for the summer.  Very refreshing.

Thanks for the recipe!
