When you’re craving the bold taste of coffee and and the smoother flavor of tea in the same cup, you don’t have to take a chance on the results of your efforts. Instead, there’s an interesting way to mix the two together that will provide you with a beverage similar to Hong Kong’s popular “Ying Yang” or coffee-tea beverage. By mixing a little coffee, a little tea and a few other ingredients, you may find a new favorite in this sweetened coffee-tea concoction.

Things You'll Need

Make a pot of coffee as you normally would, or follow the directions on the coffee packaging. Pour the hot coffee into the cup, filling it about 3/4 full.

Dunk a black tea bag into the coffee and let it steep for 2 or 3 minutes. Stir the coffee and tea.

Add 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar. You can adjust the amount of milk and sugar to suit your taste. Add ice if you prefer a cold drink.


  • Use red tea or herbal tea as a substitute for black tea.

  • As a one-cup alternative, substitute instant coffee, according to the product directions.
