Afternoon Tea: The Perfect Cup of Milk Tea

Cup of tea in the afternoon…Ah…Nothing is better in life.  Curling up the couch with  a good book usually makes me crave a cup of brown sugar Earl Gray milk tea.  It’s not as strong as coffee.  The gentle warmth of the cup, the rich aroma of Earl Gray, the smooth taste of milk, and the slight sweet tingle from brown sugar just combine into a perfectly cozy afternoon.

  • 2 cups of low fat 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons of dark brown sugar  (if you are using soy milk, substitute with 2 tbsp of granulated sugar. Add more/less depending on your preference.)
  • 1 packet of Earl Gray Tea  (Lipton, Twinning, whatever fancies you)

In a small saucepan, heat the milk over low heat until small bubbles form on the edge.  Add in dark brown sugar and stir until dissolved.  Add in the tea bag and turn off the heat.  Cover and let it sit for 5 minutes.  Then grab your favorite novel and a comfy spot on the chair!!

Note: For those who don’t like milky drinks or want stronger tea flavor, take 1/2 cup of hot water and steep a bag of Earl Gray in it for 3 minutes.  Then before serving, add the hot tea into your milk tea.  (This is basically a fancier “water down”)
