If you love both coffee and tea, try this popular Hong Kong Yuan Yang! This beverage is a blend of creamy, sweet coffee with milk tea. No matter if it’s Hong Kong coffee or Hong Kong milk tea, now you have the best of both worlds at the same time. Enjoy this beverage either hot or cold!
Yuan Yang (鸳鸯) is a popular drink in Hong Kong that combines both coffee and tea into one beverage. Since I love my coffee strong, I really enjoy having this strong, caffeinated drink whenever I visit a Hong Kong style cafe!
This drink is so comforting that I like to pair with some light meals, or with sweet desserts such as cookies or egg tarts.
What Ingredients Do I Need to Make This Hong Kong Yuan Yang?
- Black Tea: You will need about 4 – 6 tea bags. I’ve used 4 Ceylon tea bags for this recipe. If you prefer a stronger caffeinated drink, go for 5 or 6 tea bags.
- Brewed Coffee
- Sugar: Adjust the amount of sugar according to your liking for sweetness.
- Milk or Condensed Milk: Use condensed milk for a thicker and authentic taste. I have tried using oat milk and whole milk before, and I prefer oat milk’s taste.

How to Make This Coffee Milk Tea?
Firstly, steep about 4-6 black tea bags in hot, freshly boiled water. Make the coffee while the tea is steeping.
When both the hot coffee and tea are ready, combine in a large teapot or measuring jug (at least 3 cups capacity). Add sugar, stir to dissolve while the coffee-tea mix is still hot. Lastly, add in the milk and this drink is done!
You can also use condensed milk to instead of whole milk, for a thicker and more authentic taste. I am using milk because I don’t always have condensed milk at home. Do note that using milk does dilute this beverage a little. If you are using condensed milk, omit or reduce the sugar, according to your liking.
