Royal Milk Tea
Makes 4 cups (8oz each)
30g Black Tea (like Assam Whole Leaf)
2 cups Hot Water
2 cups Whole Milk
Create a concentrate by simmering Black Tea in 2 cups of hot water for 3 minutes. Add milk and sugar (normally 4 tsp) and allow to come to a simmer. Do not allow to boil. Strain and serve.
In a 1 quart (liter) container, brew black tea in boiling hot water for 10 minutes to create a concentrate. Add sugar, milk and stir. Strain and serve.
For convenience, the black tea concentrate can be set aside for storage. Add sugar, mix, and strain. Store concentrate in refrigerator after cooling to room temperature. It is common for this concentrate to turn cloudy when cooled. This shouldn’t pose a problem as milk is added before service. Add milk and heat before serving. Also good iced.
