I first discovered milk tea a few months ago. I was attending a dessert party with some friends this past fall and wanted to bring something that would go well with pumpkin pie, cookies, crème brulee… and all other sorts of rich and decadent desserts.
My go-to is always tea. It’s hard to go wrong there but then I found a recipe for milk tea! It’s pretty simple, you just steep the tea in milk instead of water…and ta-da!! There isn’t much else that can make you feel cozier than warm milk and cookies.
Since then I have been experimenting with milk tea. So far I have made a milk tea glaze – for tea cakes. And now…Milk-Tea White Russians!
Here is what you will need to master this drink:
- The perfect tea maker: You can find it here
- Loose leaf tea of your choice
Once you have stepped the tea, add 2oz of you milk-tea to the following:
- Baileys espresso Crème Liqueur (1.5oz)
- Coffee Liqueur (.25oz)
- Vodka of choice (.5oz)
Then simply shake and pour over ice!
This drink is such an indulgence! It is also sooo simple to make. My favorite tea to use with this is Tevana’s White Chocolate Peppermint.
