My love for milk teas is like an extraordinary journey. In my little fancy my ultimate aim is to taste different of them in the world.
I bet not everyone drinks coffee, at least 50% of them drink tea. I enjoyed the discovery of them, from classic English Milk Tea, Earl Grey Milk Tea to Thai Milk Tea is my hobby.
All you really need is black tea (loose leaf or bagged), vanilla extract, a natural sweetener of choice (I used a mix of muscovado sugar and maple syrup), and coconut milk!
Can we just talk about the creaminess going on here? I mean, can we talk about it?
- 6 star anise pods
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Sweetened condensed coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 1/2 teaspoons loose Ceylon tea leaves
Bring star anise, turmeric, vanilla, and 5 cups water to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat; add tea leaves. Steep 10 minutes; strain and let cool completely. For each serving, pour over ice; stir in condensed coconut milk to taste. Tea will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
