And what better way than starting with a classic jasmine milk tea recipe!

What is Keto Milk Tea?

Keto milk tea is bold fragrant brewed tea complimented by a creamy sweet finish using half n half and sweetener.

It is often the staple drink offered at many boba tea shops around the world.

What kind of tea leaves do you recommend using for Keto Milk Tea?

I recommend using loose leaf jasmine or black tea.

What is the best way to brew tea for a milk tea recipe?

You can use a traditional teapot or our favorite way is using a bottom tea dispenser.  Make sure you give it enough time because you want a strong brew (5 min) for this milk tea recipe.

Do you have any tips or tricks to making this milk tea recipe?

  • Make sure you aim for a strong tea brew so you get that bold and fragrant tea flavor.
  • Adjust the sweetener 1 tsp at a time depending on your preference.
  • If you prefer a stronger bolder brew, you may want to consider using black loose leaf tea.

    Thank you for sharing! I haven’t been able to make a good enough milk tea for myself at home yet to avoid buying milk tea often (I think I always try to make it too healthy and dairy-free, haha!), so I’m really excited to try this with half and half!

  2. Thank you for the recommendation of good tea leaves. Missed the rich & sweet taste of milk tea, so thank you for sharing.
