TEH TARIK (PULLED TEA)

 Hi! everyone,




Teh tarik, literally pulled tea,  is a mixture of tea with condensed milk. This mixture is poured back and forth repeatedly between two vessels over a height, giving it a thick frothy top, kind of like cappuccino. 


This process helps mix tea and condensed milk more thoroughly at the same time cooling its temperature. That's how it gets its name. This hot tea beverage can be commonly found in restaurants, and outdoor stalls in Malaysia and Singapore. It is popular amongst all walks of people.


Steven's tea garden, just opposite Toast Box at Mid Vally, a Mamak (Indian Muslim) restaurant chain claimed to be the “best teh tarik in the world!”. So, you have to pay RM 4.00 a glass, which is three to four times higher than other places. This world class beverage is considered very cheap if you compare with other world class beverage.


Occasionally, teh tarik competition are held, where brewers gather to show their skill, like the Chinese Kungfu tea ceremony. The ability to drag a long stream of tea well over their heads reallly amazes lots of people especially tourists. In the past, these brewers were dressed simply; wearing a white tee shirt, sarong and slippers.


Lately, teh tarik had been recognised as a beverage heritage of Malaysia by the Malaysian government.

I haven't tasted teh tarik for a long time. There is no fancy way of making tea here. Malaysia has a great way to show the tourists her true art of making good and tasty tea.
