Do you love tea & caramel flavor??? If so, you gotta try this caramel milk tea…

Caramel milk tea is a delightful and popular beverage that combines the rich flavors of tea, milk, and caramelized sugar. It’s a variation of the classic milk tea, which is a tea-based drink made with a blend of black tea and milk, often served with sweeteners like sugar or honey.

Caramel milk tea can be enjoyed hot or cold, depending on personal preferences and the weather. In some variations, it’s served with ice and referred to as “caramel milk tea with ice” or “caramel iced milk tea.” Some people also like to customize their caramel milk tea with toppings like tapioca pearls (boba).

This is a beloved drink that satisfies both tea and dessert cravings, making it a delightful treat for tea enthusiasts and those with a sweet tooth alike.
