Hong Kong Style Lemon Iced Tea Recipe

Hong Kong lemon tea is a popular drink in Hong Kong.

If you want to purchase it in a Hong Kong cafe, you can ask for ‘Dong Ling Cha’, which translates to ‘Iced Lemon Tea’.


This recipe is quite simple and easy to prepare.


  • Black Tea
  • Sugar Syrup
  • 3 Lemon Slices
  • Ice Cubes

How to Prepare Hong Kong Lemon Iced Tea

  1. Brew the black tea to your preference over a burner, but I would recommend that you brew it a little stronger than you normally would, because the ice will slightly dilute the tea.
  2. If you used loose-leaf tea, then you can filter the leaves out of your tea. If you used a tea bag, then you could likely skip this step.
  3. Place the tea in the fridge to chill it.
  4. Prepare a tall iced tea glass with the ice cubes, sugar syrup, and lemon slices.
  5. Pour the black tea into the glass.
  6. Use either a cocktail stick or a spoon to muddle the lemon slices into the tea.
