Gather all the ingredients.
Black tea leaves: To make dark colored tea, use Assam tea and to make light colored tea, use Darjeeling tea.
Water: Please note that the ratio for water is NOT double when you make 2 cups of royal milk tea. Water won't be evaporated as much, so 3/4 cup is the right amount.
Sugar: If you know how much sugar you like to add already, add sugar at the end before pouring into the cup so the sugar will be dissolved completely.
To make iced royal milk tea: You can cook the tea leaves a slightly little longer so ice will not dilute the flavor as much.
