Teh Tarik

What is it?
"Teh tarik" is black tea
(see Types of Tea) sweetened with condensed milk. Teh tarik is considered, by some, the staple drink of Malaysians.

Where can one get it?
The drink is popular at "Mamak" stalls (Indian-Muslim hawker stalls). In addition, many coffee shops, eateries and even posh restaurants also serve the Teh Tarik.

How is it made?

Condensed milk is added to hot black tea in a container (usually a metal mug). The hot concoction is then poured from the container into another (mug or glass). This is done repeatedly and the distance (height) between the two containers is significantly large. As the tea is poured over the height, it traps air and forms froth. The "pulling" action (in Malay, teh means tea and tarik means to pull) also enhances the mixing and blending process of the ingredients.

When do people drink it?
"Teh Tarik" has become so popular with Malaysians that drinking it has become a culture. Teh Tarik is drunk during mealtimes and in fact, at all times of the day. Having a "Teh Tarik session" has now come to mean having a meeting - be it formal or informal.

Why is it so popular?

The taste and aroma (smell) of the drink are rather special and - some say - addictive (in a positive way). Perhaps the uniqueness comes from the thorough blending of tea and condensed milk when the concoction is "pulled".

Apakah Teh Tarik?
Minuman teh hitam (Lihat Jenis-jenis Teh) dengan susu pekat. Boleh dikatakan bahawa teh tarik adalah minuman ruji penduduk Malaysia.

Di mana teh tarik diperolehi?
Teh tarik lazim dihidangkan di gerai-gerai Mamak (orang keturunan India yang menganuti agama Islam). Selain daripada itu, teh tarik juga didapati di banyak kedai kopi, kedai makanan dan juga restoran-restoran (biasa dan mewah).

B
agaimana ia dibuat?
Susu pekat dicampurkan kepada teh hitam panas di dalam bekas (biasanya diperbuat daripada logam). Campuran teh ini kemudiannya dituangkan ke dalam bekas lain (koleh logam atau gelas). Perbuatan ini diulangi dan jarak di antara kedua bekas adalah agak panjang (tinggi). Apabila teh dituangkan di antara dua bekas, campuran itu memerangkap udara lalu berbusa. Perbuatan "menarik" teh dari satu bekas ke satu lagi meningkatkan proses pencampuran dan pengadunan bahan-bahan minuman tersebut.

Bila Teh Tarik diminum
?
Teh tarik begitu popular dengan rakyat 
Malaysia sehingga "jom minum teh" telah menjadi suatu kebudayaan atau gaya hidup. Teh tarik diminum bukan sahaja semasa waktu makan tetapi pada bila-bila masa sahaja. Sesi teh tarik kini telah menjadi masa mesyuarat secara rasmi dan tak-rasmi.

Sebab-sebab Teh Tarik begitu popular:

Teh tarik mempunyai rasa dan bau yang istimewa. Ada yang mengatakan bahawa teh tarik agak menagihkan (dalam cara positif). Mungkin keunggulan teh tarik datang dari pengadunan campuran teh dan susu semasa ia di"tarik".
