The Best HK-style Milk Tea

This article is based on CNN Travel’s article, Best Milk Teas in Hong Kong.

Tai Fat Gold Milk Tea

“Gold Tea” at Tai Fat

The awarding-winning “gold tea” is made from a combination of half a dozen different teas.

The key to Tai Fat’s milk tea is mildness. The tea here is slightly less strong than what you find elsewhere, making it an easy to drink crowd pleaser.

Where to find it:

Tai Fat Restaurant 大發餐廳開心菜館. Shop 5, Beauty Court Shopping Centre, 4212-4213 Hung Shui Kiu section of Castle Peak Rd., Yuen Long, New Territories, +852 2443 5533

Lan Fong Yuen Milk Tea

The Original: Lan Fong Yuen

At Lan Fong Yuen, a very fine sackcloth and a copper teapot is used to make milk tea. The tea and milk are strained through the cloth sieve eight times to produce its incomparable velvet texture.

Try tasting the milk tea without sugar first to enjoy the richness of the tea aromas. Add sugar later on if you need it.
