Hokkaido Milk Tea Recipe: Famous Japanese Tea

I’m sure you all love delicious food, drinks, and delicacies, including beverages. I bet you also love things that are both healthy and good for you. In that case, Hokkaido milk tea (milk tea in Hokkaido style) is definitely for you. Milk tea is a popular drink in Hokkaido. It features a unique sweetness and creamy taste that is loved by many people.

What is Hokkaido Milk Tea?

Hokkaido milk tea is a popular beverage in Japan, and it’s easy to see why. This rich and sweet drink is made with milk, Hokkaido milk powder, and sugar. The milk powder is made from high-quality milk and has a very creamy texture.

The Hokkaido milk powder gives the tea its distinct taste. The tea itself is light and refreshing, but the milk powder adds a fullness that makes it perfect for any time of day! It is also very healthy. It contains many vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and vitamin D. This makes it a great drink for children and adults alike who want to stay healthy.

What is Hokkaido Milk Tea made of?

  • 1/2 cup of powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup of hot water
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder

Toppings

  • Honey Bear – This bear is made of honey and milk tea; it tastes great and is a great way to make your milk tea more delicious and sweet.
  • Salted Egg Yolk – This is a very delicious topping; it will make your milk tea taste even better than before.
  • Whipped Cream – This is a basic topping for every milk tea lover; it’s also very easy to make at home or buy from the market.
  • Red Bean Paste – This red bean paste will make your milk tea sweeter and more delicious than before!

How to make Hokkaido Milk Tea

  1. Add 3/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar to a saucepan over medium heat (or use a microwave-safe bowl). Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Pour 2 cups of milk into a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to boil, then stir in 2 tablespoons matcha powder (available at most grocery stores or Asian markets). Reduce heat to low-medium and continue stirring for about 3 minutes until the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of condensed milk into each glass of 2 tablespoons hot water (or add more as desired), then stir in the cooked mixture until fully mixed together. The dish should be creamy and smooth like regular milk tea! Add more matcha powder if needed to suit your tastes; we recommend using less than 1 tablespoon per glass if you don’t want it too strong!

Tips

  • Add some ice. This helps cool down the tea and keeps it from getting too bitter or hot.
  • Use a milk tea powder rather than powdered milk
  • Add a few drops of vanilla extract to the milk, then heat it up while you’re making your tea
  • Make sure you use whole milk, not low-fat or skim milk
  • Don’t add sugar—the powder has plenty of sweetness in it

What to serve with?

The most common dish served with Hokkaido Milk Tea is toast. The toast should be cut into small pieces, so that it can be eaten easily while drinking the tea. The next best option for serving this Milk Tea is croissants.

Another popular food to serve with this Tea is cheesecake, which provides a nice contrast to the sweetness of the tea. While you may think it’s best to pair your Milk Tea with a pastry-based dish such as cheesecake, we recommend trying something more savory like pizza or chips and dip.

For those who are looking for something less heavy than pizza or chips and dip, try serving your Hokkaido Tea with fruit platters or even soup!

Storage

To keep your tea tasting as good as it did when you first made it, follow these simple storage tips:

  • Store in an airtight container
  • Keep the container in a cool place, away from direct sunlight or other heat sources
  • Do not freeze your tea.

Reheating

If you want to reheat your Hokkaido Milk Tea, here are two different methods that work well:

1) Microwave Method:

Place the Hokkaido Milk Tea in a microwave-safe container with a lid on top. Heat for 30 seconds on high power (or until steaming). Remove from microwave and stir well before serving.

2) Boil-and-Strain Method:

Pour boiling water into a teapot or saucepan large enough to hold all of the liquid from one carton of Hokkaido Milk Tea plus an additional 1/4 cup of water per cup of tea being prepared (this will allow for expansion during heating). Allow steeping for 2 minutes before straining into individual cups or mugs.

Health Benefits

If you love the taste of Hokkaido tea, here are some reasons why you should also love drinking it:

  1. It’s good for your heart. Studies have shown that drinking Hokkaido milk tea can help lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
  2. It helps with weight loss. Hokkaido milk tea contains caffeine, which increases metabolism and helps burn fat faster—so even if you’re not watching what you eat, you’ll still be able to shed pounds by drinking this tasty beverage every day!
  3. It has antioxidants that fight free radicals in your body and prevent the disease from occurring in your body’s cells (including cancer cells).

FAQ

What does hokkaido milk tea taste like?

The flavor of hokkaido milk tea is similar to the taste of a regular iced tea, but with a slight caramel-like sweetness.

Conclusion

It’s pretty straightforward. I’m also trying to think of ways to make the flavors significantly lighter; it is milk tea, after all, but I don’t want it to overwhelmingly milk tea flavored either. I’m also thinking of adding more tea in place of the milk and sugar, but I’m not sure if that will make it even more bitter. As for the calories, I think that’s pretty standard for a glass of milk tea (although it is on the higher end).
