Dalgona Milk Tea Recipe

Dalgona Milk Tea Recipe

The recent viral Dalgona coffee¬†trend¬†has definitely taken the Internet by storm, but little known to many, Dalgona (Žč¨Í≥†Žāė) actually refers to a¬†caramel-coloured¬†Korean candy made by combining sugar, water, and baking soda.¬†
 
Cafe Cha, a popular cafe in Seoul, specialises in the creation of Dalgona-inspired desserts and drinks such as Dalgona milk tea, which is a perfect mix for those who aren’t a fan of coffee and its bitter notes.
