Nigerian Tea is not what the rest of the world calls tea. I honestly do not know why we started calling this tea but everyone, the learned and the not so learned call it tea. Even those who know that it is not tea call it tea anyway because they want to make sure they are served the correct drink when they request for it.
What you will need to make Nigerian Tea
You only need 3 ingredients to make Nigerian Tea. For one serving of Nigerian Tea made in a standard mug, you will need:
- 1 tin Peak Evaporated Milk
- 1 tablespoon Milo
- Hot water
If you are using a who-send-you-cup, double the quantities of ingredients above. LOL
Some people add sugar to the above but that’s a no-no for me because Milo already contains large amounts of sugar so no need to add sugar to the Nigerian Tea aka Hot Chocolate.
- Pour the tin of Peak Milk into a mug.
- Add hot water to fill up the cup.
- Add Milo.
- Stir very well and that’s it! Watch the video below to see me dunking, baptizing my bread in the tea before eating. Yum!
