Almond Milk Tea Recipe

Chinese almod tea

Pacific Northwest has been sitting in the lowest temperatures for this Winter season. Some parts of the city have been covered by snow. We got our luck. Snow only stays for a day and melts away, but it's freezing outside! That would be nice if I could snap my fingers about the warmer weather. Don't you think? When the weather gets chilly, there's nothing more comforting than curling up under a blanket with a warm drink, or watching your favorite movie with your beloved one. Whether you need to warm your bones or treat a cold, this delightful drink is the perfect thing to take the cold out of your frozen bone and warm you from head to toe. So when it comes to warming my body, I only have one thing in mind, Warm drinks. This Almond tea with baked puff pastry has been delightful and a lifesaver, especially during this harsh wintertime. This hot drink is sweet, tasty, and sure to be your new favorite to warm up your body and soul.

I learned about this tea from one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in California, but since we moved here to PNW, I haven't found any Chinese restaurant that serves this tea. So, for now, I have learned how to prepare this myself.

It's pretty easy to make this almond tea with baked puff pastry, with store-bought ingredients such as puff pastry sheets, almond powder, and canned ginkgo nu; you are on your way to the warm and comforting place. And besides, this one tea looks very fancy to serve your guest or private party enjoying this cold winter season.

How to eat it?

You can dip the crispy and flaky puff pastry in the warm tea before eating it, or you can sip it and eat the bread separately. Either way, they are delicious.

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a beautiful, comforting, fun weekend, and please stay warm.

Happy New Year!

Much Love,
