When you are in Malaysia, especially in Kuching, do try out the 3 layer tea.
However, Klang Valley, some restaurants around Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya offer the 3 layered tea. It consists of:
- ceylonese tea with milk and ice (top layer)
- evaporated milk (middle layer)
- gula melaka- sugar made from coconut
If the restaurants offer it, posters are normally being displayed. The Chicken Rice Shop- shop outlets selling chicken rice also have the 3 layered tea- at least that was what I heard in the radio advertisement.
When served, stir the tea and drink it slowly. If you are a milk tea lover, you’ll definitely love this.
If you wish learn how to make the 3 layer tea, here is the video from my favourite channel, Nyonya Cooking on how to make:
