Simple Iced Milk Tea

8:12 PM

Rolling into a long, three day weekend, I was looking for something cool and mildly sweet to sip on as I relaxed and prepped an easy dinner. Milk tea is just that! Total prep time is about ten minutes and the result is a creamy, sweet iced tea outside of my usual chai or unsweetened tea.

Sugar can be substituted for the honey if preferred but I love the smell and taste of the honey with this recipe. Bonus if it's local honey and double bonus if you can get your hands on local milk! Today I had neither 😉 but I intend to make this recipe again soon with both. The taste is noticeably improved by local, less processed ingredients and, thankfully, these are easily accessable at my local farmers market and general grocery store.

(makes 2 servings)
1 cup boiling water
3 tsp black tea in sachet or 3 tea bags
1-2 Tbsp honey
1 cup whole milk

1. Bring water to a boil and pour over tea, steeping for five minutes.
2. After the five minutes are up, remove tea and add honey to taste.
3. Pour sweetened tea over ice and stir.
4. Add milk, stir, and enjoy!
