- 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
- 2 tablespoons sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1/2 cup black tea, brewed and cooled
- 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- Prepare Strawberry Syrup:
- In a blender, blend the fresh strawberries until smooth.
- Transfer the blended strawberries to a small saucepan and add sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries break down and the mixture thickens into a syrup-like consistency. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let the strawberry syrup cool.
- Brew Black Tea:
- Brew a cup of black tea according to the package instructions. Allow the tea to cool to room temperature.
- Mix Strawberry Milk Tea:
- In a glass, combine the brewed black tea, strawberry syrup, and milk. Stir well to combine. Adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar if needed.
- Add Ice:
- Add ice cubes to the glass to chill the strawberry milk tea.
- Give the drink a final stir before serving.
- Optionally, you can garnish the drink with fresh strawberry slices.
- Sip and enjoy your delicious homemade Strawberry Milk Tea!
