Does it taste different?

The tea is pulled to get the perfect temperature and to optimise the mixing of milk and tea. After the process, you will get a much better flavoured frothy milk tea.

I’ve tried pulling coffee with milk at home, but not very high (because I would spill it!). It does taste better:)
