Milk tea pick me ups

Recently, I was shown a great way to get my milk tea hit. Fine, it is not as fancy schmancy as the franchise milk teas with their assortment of toppings nor is it as exciting as racing out with my workmates when the coffee man’s horn signals his arrival, but it is a comforting and warming drink when the air conditioning at work is raining  cold air relentlessly and very considerate towards the wallet. A great thumbs up from me taste buds (plus calcium hit!). Just yesterday I passed a Chatime…Chatime Schmatime I say! I can walk away with a feeling of triumph. No more guilty feelings after greedily gobbling down those expensive and overtly sugary milk teas (they were so yummy though XD)

Here’s the easy schmeezy milk tea recipe on the go!

Material it up:

2 black tea bags
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 a cup of milk (very rough measure, I just literally fill my cup half way)


This is my milk tea mug 🙂

black tea

Plop 2 Black tea bags in the cup


Half fill the cup with milk

Microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds. Watch that mug for the last 20 seconds. When you see the milk start to rise, press stop. If It overflows… you failed and there’s some cleaning to be done.
If you have successfully stopped it in time, then proceed to throw out the tea bags, add sugar, stir and enjoy.


Add 1 teaspoon of sugar (or two if you like it real sweet)

I, personally, have yet to allow my milk tea to overflow. I could thank my microwaved oats days where after a few failed attempts… I watched my mug like a hawk. Now, I can enjoy my milk tea everyday and leave the cleaning to the rostered ladies.

Sadly, I can’t say the same for my cousin, whom informed me via email that she had a go at this milk tea… and it ended up all over the microwave.

Tip of the day: Watch it like a hawk. Better luck next time 🙂

Let me know how you guys go. 🙂
