How to Make Coffee Milk Tea


If you love the taste of coffee and milk, but want something that's a little more exciting than your typical cup o' joe, then read on! We'll show you how to make a simple cocktail that tastes just like an iced cappuccino—without any espresso or milk. Coffee Milk Tea is perfect for summer days spent sipping on the patio or at home relaxing with friends while watching your favorite TV show.

Coffee Milk Tea is Not Coffee Milk

Coffee Milk Tea is not Coffee Milk. Although they may sound the same, and even look similar in some cases, these two drinks are not one and the same. While both beverages include milk and black tea as ingredients (and sometimes coffee), Coffee Milk Tea has more of a distinct taste than your average cup of Joe.

Coffee Milk Tea is a popular beverage in Southeast Asia; it's especially popular in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia to name a few places where it's consumed regularly. It's made with black tea that has been brewed from water boiled over an open fire (or stovetop), then poured over ice cubes into glasses filled with milk or half-and-half; sugar and cinnamon are also common additions to this popular drink which is typically served cold for maximum refreshment during hot summer months!


We have a tutorial for you on how to make the perfect cup of coffee milk tea. The drink has been growing in popularity since it was first invented in Taiwan, and now it's become so popular that even big companies are making their own versions!

What is coffee milk tea?

Coffee milk tea is a beverage that combines the flavors of coffee and tea. It's usually served hot or warm, but can also be served cold.

How do I make it?

To make one serving of this delicious beverage, you'll need: 2 tablespoons of your favorite black tea leaves (we recommend oolong) 4 tablespoons sugar 1 cup boiling water 1/4 cup evaporated milk

What You'll Need

You will need:

  • Black tea leaves

  • Instant coffee (regular or decaf)

  • Sugar

Tea bags or tea leaves Instant coffee (regular or decaf) Sugar


There are a few ingredients you'll need for making this delicious beverage:

  • 3-4 tbsp of Black tea leaves

  • 1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in ½ cup hot water

  • 1 cup milk (any kind)

  • 1 cup sugar (or less if you want it less sweet)

3-4 tbsp of Black tea leaves*

3-4 tbsp of Black tea leaves*

These are used to make tea. They're usually made from the Camellia sinensis plant and are also known as tea leaves. If you drink loose leaf teas, then you probably know that there is a difference between them and tea bags. Tea bags are filled with ground tea leaves, while loose tea leaves are whole leaves that need to be steeped in hot water for a certain amount of time for optimal flavor extraction.

1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in ½ cup hot water

  • Add 1 tbsp instant coffee to ½ cup hot water and stir until dissolved.

  • Using a spoon, mix the coffee into your hot water until it is fully dissolved.

The coffee will start to foam, but keep stirring until it dissolves completely.

Dr. Oetker's Vanilla Sugar (aka Vanilla Pudding mix)

Vanilla Sugar:

  • What is it? Dr. Oetker Vanilla Sugar is designed to be used as a substitute for vanilla extract in recipes. It contains sugar, corn syrup solids and artificial flavorings. It's available at most grocery stores.

  • How do you use it? Add 1 teaspoon of the mix to 1 cup of milk (you can use any type of milk) just before heating it up in your microwave or on the stovetop for about 10 seconds, then whisk until dissolved completely into a smooth mixture. You can also add this mix straight from the packet if you don't have time to heat it up first — just make sure that the milk has reached room temperature by putting it in an ice bath until cold!


There you have it! We hope this guide has helped you create your own delicious iced coffee tea.
