earl grey milk tea ice pops (recipe)

Hello! I got an ice pop mold a few years ago but haven’t been making much use of it. Since summer is almost over and the weather’s been as hot as ever, I decided to make some earl grey milk tea ice pops! I’m absolutely in love with earl grey + milk tea, and this actually came out better than I expected. The flavour reminded me of the frosted royal milk tea beverage from Tully’s Japan :D

Originally I was debating about how many tea bags to use, but I thought “what the heck”; better to make it stronger and add liquid to dilute it than to not have the flavour come through enough. The sweetness level is perfect for me, but if you find it too sweet, you can always add more milk to make it less sweet. Taste the base before pouring it into the mold!

Recipe

Ingredients

250ml water
3 earl grey tea bags (I used Harney & Sons)
85ml condensed milk
165ml full fat milk

Method

1. Place water into a saucepan on high heat until it boils.
2. Add the tea into the water and close the lid. It’s better to remove the tea from their bags. Simmer at medium heat for 2 minutes.
3. Add the condensed milk and full fat milk and stir until incorporated.
4. Pour mixture into a pitcher over a sieve.
5. Divide the mixture into the individual ice pop molds with the popsicle sticks.
6. Allow to freeze for at least 6 hours.
