Teh Tarik translates to 'pulled tea' and is the national drink of Malaysia. Bitter sweet is the best way to describe Teh Tarik, which traditionally is poured into two different containers from a height to create an aerated drink with a frothy top.
This homestyle variation takes out the 'pulling' part to avoid messy spills all over the kitchen, and essentially maintains the delicious flavours while keeping it nice and simple.
Ingredients 2 black tea bags
1-2 tbsp condensed milk
250ml boiling water
Place the 2 tea bags into a large mug and pour in the boiling water. Let this steep for a few minutes until the water is dark black.
Place a spoonful of condensed milk into the tea and stir through until the spoon is clean. Depending on the level of sweetness to bitter ratio you prefer, you can add another half to one more spoonful.
Once stirred through, the Teh Tarik should be at the perfect drinking temperature. It can be enjoyed any time, day or night and goes well with spicy food or as a night cap.
