Hong Kong–style milk tea, made with strong black tea stirred together with evaporated or condensed milk and plenty of sugar, dates back to the days of British colonial rule. Today, it remains a popular beverage in cafés across the city; King uses a concentrated powdered version (often used to make bubble tea) to add complexity to the custard in this tiramisu.
