Do you love Teh Tarik (a direct translation of this phrase will be “Pull Tea”). Well, for the sake of those of you who don’t know, it is actually a tea mixed with sweet condensed milk.

Malaysians like to drink “teh tarik” (a tea mixed with condensed milk with some bubble on top of it – I hope my brief simple definition of teh tarik is understandable).

Does the topic sound weird? Well maybe it is, for Malaysians who dwell in Malaysia, they don’t bother to know about this. But, if you live overseas and if you miss teh tarik, I’m going to give you a tip on how to make teh tarik overseas version!!! I studied in UK during my undergraduate and a friend Pakistani friend taught me how to make the so called teh tarik.

Check out the secret formula down there…

The standard operating procedure (SOP) of making “teh tarik” overseas:

1. Take 2 bags of tea. You can choose Lipton or Boh (if it is available there) or other good brands.
2. Fill your mug with 50% of hot water (you can also use a cup for lower volume/lower capacity).
3. Submerge the tea bags into the mug and allow the colour and taste to evolve from the bag. You can also stir it, or pull the bag in and out the mug.
4. After extracting the tea from the tea bag, add the balance 50% with fresh milk. Now, the mug content is 100% because tea solution (50%) + fresh milk (50%).
5. Then add in just a small pinch of salt.
6. After that, add in sugar according to you taste. If you want to have it sweet, add more sugar and vice versa.
7. Finally stir the tea in the mug. If you dare to “tarik” the tea, then please becareful, otherwise it will spill down and wet your floor OR injure your tender soft hands.
8. Ready to drink – it taste almost 99.5% like our home made teh tarik in Malaysia.

  1. Yep, this is practical for foreigners And also Malaysian who couldn’t buy condensed milk overseas… :)

  2. I think bro.. comment box macam kena spam jer..
    btw am style, working in cbtl stall, they have something like teh tarik menu..

    it was extract of tea, english breakfirst tea, tropical passion, apple tea, or the chai tea (chai is mix of a few types of spice, some say masala tea – very good when you got fever)
    steamed – skim milk
    vanilla powder with sugar added..

    add tea extract + vanilla powder + skim milk, add the foam on top = Tea Latte, but the english break first tea taste the same like tea mamak.. so mat susly also can try something like tea tarik at cbtl.. huhu..

  3. Ha’a la memang comment box aku kena spam… Tengah nak cari solution gak nie, ada cadangan?

    By the way, it is good to know that there are various other flavours and style of preparing teh tarik…
    Later aku try gak la…. he eh

  4. well just use akismet… tak payah nak setting2 dia tau sendiri sebab databasa dia memang dah simpan perkataan yang spam ni.. am tak pernah tak puas hati bila guna akismet.. do you know.. Akismet Day is coming this december?? <– ramai orang takut bro.. :D

  5. give it atry for yourself. and you don’t know what is your potential in cooking. cooking for your wife for example. help your wife… don’t only waste a time see her cooking for you… hahahahaaa

  6. yeah… save your time for editing spamm… combat it with akismet and you’re the winner attacking back spammers…. say good bye to spammers…

  7. all of this you can make it by yourself, but we need some time effective to do all of that. so the alternatif is pay to them for the food and give them oppurtunity some extra incoming money to their pockets.
