Recently, I experimented with tea and Milo to make easy and delicious beverages. It all started with a free sample of Lipton Tea Potbag Extra Kaw. Since I have Milo at home too, I tried combining both. All the recipes will require evaporated milk and condensed milk for the richness of the drinks.
Teh Tarik Kaw
First, I started with teh tarik kaw. Very sweet teh tarik it is. If you add ice, you can make 2 glasses. When the ice is diluted, it will be less sweet.
Less Sweet Iced Teh Tarik
Next, here is the iced teh tarik recipe for those who want their teh tarik less sweet and not as kaw. You can omit the ice if you don’t want it cold. If you have ice, it will be even less sweet. Just adjust accordingly to your preference. No hard rules.
Meanwhile, here’s a recipe with no tea involved. If you want to do something similar to the Milo van’s Milo, you can try this recipe out. It tastes similar (don’t expect it to be 100%) to the Milo from Milo van that we used to have when we were in school. It must be served cold with or without ice. The Milo will be more diluted and less sweet if ice is added.
Lastly, I’ve always been on the lookout for chocolate tea in local cafes but I couldn’t find any. Unfortunately, I always found chai latte instead of chocolate tea. My first taste of chocolate tea was in Chocolate Bean, Adelaide (no longer in operation). I liked it and always wonder how it’s made but never get around doing it.
Since I have Lipton Tea Potbag Extra Kaw now, I can try to make one. Prior to this, I tried looking for recipes online and found out that I don’t have the spices mentioned. Then, I found one that has almost everything I have and I adjusted it slightly. Instead of cocoa powder and sugar, I used Milo, evaporated milk, and condensed milk.
By the way, the cinnamon powder is optional. Feel free to skip it if you dislike spices. If you do so, the kick won’t be there, there won’t be depth to it. However, the taste is different from the one I had in Adelaide because I didn’t add all those additional spices. Still, it is still not bad.
There you go. I hope this sharing is useful. Do try it out and let me know how you like them. Remember that you are free to adjust the ingredients here and there to suit your own tastebuds. Have fun experimenting.
