Tea/coffee with condensed milk

We love a hot cup of Hong Kong-style milk tea, but one too many spoonfuls of sugar will result in a sweet cup of mess and a pool of undissolved sugar when you reach the bottom. So most people would order for a cha jau (茶走) or feh jau (啡走). The word ‘jau’ (走) means to leave out, so instead of adding in the sugar, the cha chaan teng will serve your cha (tea) or feh (coffee) with condensed milk as a sweetener. The condensed milk adds a soft and sweet milkier taste to the beverage.
Where: Try the feh jau at Tai Wo Tang Cafe which uses condensed milk as the bottom layer followed by espresso topped with milk foam.
