Milk Tea Jam

Milk Tea Jam

This is a very rich tea flavored milk jam.
Simmer it slowly, patiently.
It takes time, but this is an irresistible flavor for tea lovers.

Ingredients: 180 to 200 ml

500 ml
100 to 120 g
Tea bags


1. Put milk and sugar in a pan and heat.
2. When the milk comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and add the tea bags. Simmer to extract the tea flavor for about 5 minutes.
3. Then just simmer the mixture slowly, stirring so that it doesn't get burned on the bottom, slowly so that the tea fragrance doesn't dissipated, and preventing a skin from forming on the top. Don't leave the pot unattended and stir for about 1.5 hours until it is reduced to about 200 ml.
4. When the jam has reduced and thickened, strain it through a tea strainer or similar to remove any surface skin or lumps. Pour into a sterilized jar and its done.
5. I used 3 bags of Earl Grey tea this time. ‐ I think this is best made with a strong fragrant tea.
6. Put the milk and sugar in a large heatproof bowl and microwave for 2 minutes at 700W. Add the tea bags, and roll the bowl around for about 5 minutes to extract the tea flavor. Microwave with the tea bags still in the bowl for another 9 minutes.
7. Remove the surface skin. Squeeze out the tea bags to extract their flavor and take out. Microwave for 3 minutes at 700 W to finish. This will result in a smooth, silky jam.
