BOH ”Teh Tarik Original” Instant Tea
With this BOH instant tea, you can prepare your favourite Malaysian beverage easily and quickly. The BOH ”Teh Tarik Original” instant tea, is a tea granulate made of black tea, vegetable milk powder and sugar packed in 12 sachets of 27 g each, from the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. The hot drink originated in India, but can now be found at Malaysian street food stalls and restaurants. The name Teh Tarik means “pulled tea” and is derived from the way it is prepared. The tea is ”pulled” by pouring it from one pot into another. A spectacular performance among the professionals in Malaysia!
Traditionally, Teh Tarik is drunk very sweet, with sweetened condensed milk.
However, this instant tea is called ”kurang manis”, which means less sweet.
Preparation: Pour the contents of an instant tea bag into a large cup with about 180 ml of boiling water and stir. If desired, you can ”steep” the instant tea by pouring it from one vessel, high up, into another vessel alternately until it becomes frothy. Now the teh tarik is ready to serve!
If you want to make Teh Tarik yourself:
For 4 cups of ”Teh Tarik” you will need:
- 5 tbsp BOH Cameron Highlands black tea loose, 500 g
- 500 ml water
- 4 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
Put the water in a pot and let the tea leaves simmer for about 10min.
This will make a strong tea. Now take a strainer and let the tea run through the strainer into a teapot. Now add the sweetened condensed milk and start pouring the tea from the pot into another vessel. The longer and higher you pour it, the creamier and frothier it becomes. Finally, pour back into a teacup and enjoy the delicious taste of the Malaysian national drink, Teh Tarik!
