Are you looking for a unique and delicious tea experience? Sri Lankan milk tea provides just that! With its creamy, frothy texture and sweet taste, it is sure to be the perfect addition to your daily cup of tea. Here’s how you can make this special beverage in the comfort of your own home.

First, start by boiling water on the stove. Once boiling, add two teaspoons of Ceylon black tea leaves (you can also use green or white tea). Let the leaves steep for five minutes before straining out into a cup. For added flavour, add a pinch of cardamom seeds while steeping.

Next, prepare one cup of freshly boiled milk. If you’d like a creamier texture, use whole milk or condensed milk instead of regular skimmed or semi-skimmed varieties.

Now, combine the brewed tea with the warm milk in a mug or teapot. Then, using an electric whisk (or a traditional hand-whisk), whip until frothy and creamy. This can take up to three minutes, depending on the utensil you are using. Once complete, your delicious Sri Lankan Milk Tea is ready to serve!

Sri Lankan Milk Tea is one of those drinks that has been enjoyed by generations and continues to be popular around the world today. Its unique flavour and texture make it a must-try for anyone who is looking to expand their tea repertoire. So why not give it a go and see what you think!
