How To Make Milk Tea

Updated on June 24, 2011

A Healthy Way To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

I enjoy drinking milk teas because first of all, they are delicious, and second of all, they are still healthy!  My boyfriend and I have been making these almost daily for about a year now, we use sugar substitutes to reduce our sugar intake and not to mention, what is healthier than tea?  This is also a good way to take in calcium if you don't like the taste of milk.  I highly suggest trying this recipe and mixing it up with different flavors of teas, how does chocolate hazelnut sound? 


  • 1 Tea Bag -I usually use Vanilla Chai or Vanilla Caramel tea, it is hard to find Thai tea leaves in America, but it makes delicious drinks and is available online.
  • About 1 1/2 cups of milk -2% is my go-to milk for everything, your choice of milk affects the creaminess of the drink. Thai tea is traditionally made with condensed milk, however most milk types are suitable for this recipe.
  • Sugar/ Sweet 'n Low -I like to use sugar substitutes for this drink I typically add 2 Sweet n' Low packets, when using something else, sweeten to taste.
  • Ice -this is not necessary but generally preferred.
  • Tapioca -another item that is not necessary, in fact a lot of people do not like them, but to be considered "bubble tea," tapioca is generally added.
  • And of course a Cup, I usually use a medium glass unless I am feeling particularly thirsty, in which case i will double the recipe for a large cup.


  • Put about 1 1/2 Inches of water in the bottom of the cup and place the tea bag in it with the string hanging out.
  • Place the cup in the microwave for 1 minute or until it boils.
  • Carefully remove the cup, if the tea has brewed discard the tea bag.
  • Mix in your sweetener, and then fill the cup with milk, remember to leave space for the ice!
Enjoy! And let me know what you think about the drink or if you have any other good ideas!
