How to make authentic Hong Kong-style milk tea

If Hong Kong had a national drink, it’d be milk tea. A sip of the sweet, milky but strong British-inspired beverage instantly soothes the soul of any Hongkonger. 

Join our Associate Editor Laurel Chor as she learns how to make authentic Hong Kong-style milk tea from one of the best brewers in town, Ah Leung from Wing Hop Sing Restaurant in Sheung Wan.
