Yuan Yang

Yuan Yang is a popular Hong Kong beverage, known for combining coffee, tea, milk, and sugar.


This unlikely combination has proven to be popular with both locals and tourists, and is often sold along Hong Kong’s busy streets.


You can opt to have this hot or cold—the perfect pick-me-up drink for afternoons.

Hong Kong's Yuan Yang
    • In a cup, steep black tea for 3-5 minutes in 150ml hot water depending on preferred strength. Set aside. For better consistency, use a timer. 
    • In another cup, mix 1 teaspoon of NESCAFÉ GOLD and 3 teaspoons (adjust to preferred sweetness level later on) of white sugar in 100ml hot water. Make sure mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Set aside. 
    • Heat NESTLÉ Fresh Milk (50ml or according to preference. More milk will make your drink thicker, less milk thinner) in microwave for 20-30 seconds.
    • Once tea is ready, mix with coffee and sugar, and add milk. 
    • Want it cold? Don't heat the milk so it cools down the coffee and tea. This allows for less diluting from the ice. Try cold-brewing tea overnight as well to cool drink further the following day. Enjoy!
