Set aside the hot chocolate and sample Hong Kong-style milk tea (港式奶茶).
With chunks of the US under snow and having packed it in well in advance of the storm, let’s have a warming giveaway.
Hong Kong milk tea is a great pleasures of a visit to the territory. Rich and bitter, I take it straight, while many fold in spoons of sugar. Have it hot or cold. My wife favors the milk tea and coffee pairing, known as Yuanyang (Mandarin duck) to symbolize how those ducks romantically couple (鸳鸯奶茶).
Whatever you do, do not judge by Cathay Pacific’s weak, dishwater version.
Without the full setup of ball of Lipton tea bags, nylon stocking filters and Black & White brand evaporated milk, the instant alternative is Lipton’s milk tea sachets.
I will share one set each of sachets of the five flavors of Lipton’s Quality Mellow line with two randomly drawn readers. The collection is:
- British Yellow Label Original
- Belgian Chocolate
- Italian Frothy Milk
- Taiwanese Oolong
- Japanese Matcha
