Recipe by Kate S.

This decadent coffee/tea beverage from Hong Kong is delicious hot or iced. Experiment to find the proportion of coffee to tea that suits you best. This recipe is basic 1:1. A second can of evaporated or condensed milk may be used for a richer, creamier drink. Malaysia has a similar treat called "Kopi Cham".
