Teh Tarik

Teh Tarik
Pronunciation: tay tah-rik

Teh tarik (Malay for 'pulled tea') is a tea served with condensed milk (specifically, a Singaporean brand called "Carnation") and sugar. The concoction is then poured from one mug to another from a great height thus giving the illusion that the tea is being pulled. This technique enables the tea to froth which enhances its flavour. Although generally served hot, the teh tarik can also be served with ice, without milk or sugar upon request.

Although the teh tarik is widely available in every hawker stall across town, some of the best teh tariks are concocted by Indian stallholders with their artfully crafted 'pulling' techniques.
