Teh Tarik Without Guilt

That was the tittle of an article in New Sunday Times dated November 11th 2007. The article written by Audrey Vijaindren is about the most popular past time beverage among Malaysians. Morning, afternoon, night or in the wee hour of the night the drink is the most wanted in the list of drinks.

"Lets go for a glass of tek tarik," one might invite friends. But on reaching the mamak stall, he might ask for a glass if iced lemon tea. Thats how popular the drink is. Audrey wrote; "along with sambal belacan, roti canai and Ipoh chicken rice, teh tarik has charmed its way into the hearts of Malaysians".

Teh tarik is blended with tea, condensed milk and maybe sugar. It has a high content of sugar. Hence giving drinkers the opportunity of having sweet tooth. Statistics shows that 1.2 million of Malaysians have diabetes (though not all due to teh tarik).

The article by Audrey is about the recipe concocted by Food and Beverage expert Nicholas Pillai that will keep the taste bud happy but the calorie count low. At the time of blogging this I don't know where to find that newly brewed teh tarik but the article says that trial cuppa was given to customers (two days after the article published)at Devi's Corner in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Nasi Kandar Pelita Ampang Point, Nasi Kandar Pelita Bangsar, Nasi Kandar Pelita SS2 and Sri Nirwana Maju Bangsar.
