DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a kettle of water to a full boil.
  • Preheat a cup with some of the boiling water; discarding the water after the cup is hot (about 30 seconds).
  • Place a tea bag in the hot cup and gently pour a cup of boiling water over it.
  • Steep for 7 minutes (the tea needs to be over-steeped to hold up to the viscosity of the sweetened condensed milk).
  • Remove the tea bag.
  • Add two heaping tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to the tea and mix quickly and continuously until well blended.
  • Optional: a clean eggshell is sometimes added to the tea while it is steeping to reduce its acidity.
