If you really like Hong Kong style milk tea as well as cupcakes, you will love this recipe for milk tea cupcakes. Created by Courtney from the food blog Fork to Belly, the baked goods are not light and fluffy, but have a denser loaf-like texture. They also apparently taste exactly like milk tea.

To make your own milk tea cupcakes at home, you will need delicious ingredients such as black tea (Courtney used Assam tea leaves), whole milk and honey. The frosting is made using butter, sweetened condensed milk, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. You will need to grind the tea leaves until it looks like coffee grounds. You will also need a standing mixer and a tall muffin tin.
