I did a post earlier about Teh Tarik. A classic drink, rich and creamy. It goes down well any time of the day or over a chat with a good friend.
Recently Teh Tarik went through a facelift. Someone got this brilliant idea to serve Teh Tarik in a different way. The result? TEHCHINNO!! Tea suspended in milk. There is a special technic to make this. It involves dissolving some condensed milk in boiling water. Then “pulling” it, like in Teh Tarik, until frothy. And then slowwwwly, drizzle in the tea or coffee, in which case will be Kopichinno
Whenever I order a tehchinno, I will always take a few minutes just staring at it. I find it quite mesmeric. But when it’s time to drink, it has to be stirred.
One last lingering look, and a slow hesitant stir with the straw it came with, its fleeting loveliness dissipates. Forever… (Haha! Bad poetry at its worst!)
