    Teh Tarik, literally, pulled tea, is actually an Indian method of making milk tea. The milk tea containing condensed milk is poured from one container to another, which cools the tea down, and at the same time, introduces air bubbles. This gives it a lighter texture, and, as with most interactions between liquid consumables (such as wine) and air, brings out more flavor. Although, the average tea drinker will probably never notice the difference, watching the process of making this tea is a treat in itself.

    The name Teh Tarik, is in fact a Malaysian word. Tarik means pull in Malay. This meshing of words and cultures is a result of exchange happening in the South East Asian regions because of the multi-cultural backgrounds present.

    Teh Tarik

    4 tbsp powdered tea (any type)

    2 tbsp sugar

    4 tbsp condensed milk

    boiling water

    Methods

    1. Put 4 tbsp of powdered tea into a large glass or cup. Add hot water (exactly after you boil it) and leave the tea to mix for about five minutes.

    2. Sieve and transfer the tea into another glass. Add sugar and milk. Stir well.

    3. Take two big glasses, and start pouring the tea from one glass to the other, ensuring that you pull it from as high as you can.

    4. Stop when you have achieved the desired foamy texture.
