»Posted by on May 11, 2022 in Tea Services | 0 comments

Caramel is a well-known flavor among milk tea lovers. It’s deeply satisfying, sweet, and rich. That is why a lot of people want to know how to make a caramel milk tea at home.

Caramel milk tea is great both cold and hot. In addition to that, its creamy texture is ideal for customizing your drink with add-ons and toppings. 

One of the biggest advantages of caramel milk tea is that it’s easy to make. You will only require 3 ingredients. Of course, if you don’t have these ingredients in your house, you can always go to a milk tea Houston shop to buy a caramel milk tea. 

Create the Caramel 

The first step in making a caramel milk tea is to create the caramel. Turn your stove to medium heat and place a saucepan. Then, pour granulated sugar on it. Start to gently stir it as it warms. Eventually, the dry sugar will slowly dissolve into a liquid form. 

Keep in mind that you’ll need attention and patience for this. You might notice that nothing is happening at first. However, sugar can easily burn once it starts to liquify. Thus, you need to stir it frequently.  

Keep on stirring it until it turns into familiar shades of caramel. 

Mix the Milk 

After transforming your granulated sugar into caramel, time to get rid of the saucepan from the stove and mix in your milk.  

Experts recommend that you use oat milk for this since the natural flavor matches the subtle nuttiness of caramel. However, you can still use any type of milk you want.  

If the caramel hardens in the pot as you stir, you shouldn’t worry. It’s the normal reaction of the hot syrup when you combine cold milk.  

Mix the Tea 

Once you’re done mixing milk with the caramel, add your loose-leaf black tea or black tea bags. Next, put back the saucepan on top of your stove and set it at medium heat. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Keep on slowly stirring it until the caramel has completely dissolved into the milk. 

When you can already smell the tea and the caramel milk has reached a low boil, get rid of the saucepan from the stove and cover it with a lid. Let it rest for around 1 to 3 minutes. This depends on how strong you prefer your milk tea.  

Enjoy Your Tea 

After letting it rest for several minutes, your caramel milk tea is ready. Get rid of the tea bags and throw them away. If you used loose-leaf tea, you can use a strainer. All you need to do is to pour your milk tea through it.  

When served hot, it is comforting and delicious. Thus, you can enjoy it immediately once you’re done making caramel milk tea. 

However, if you want to try an iced caramel milk tea, make sure you let your caramel milk tea cool down to room temperature. Once it reaches room temperature, you can pour a couple of ice cubes into it.
