From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Teh tarik (literally pulled tea or 拉茶 in Mandarin) is a hot tea beverage which can be commonly found in restaurants, outdoor stalls and kopi tiams in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. Its name is derived from the pouring process of “pulling” the drink during preparation. It is made from black tea and condensed milk.

Whenever we want to have a discussion with friends, colleagues, business associates or even family members, we often go to some place be it mamak stall*, restaurant, McDonald’s , kopi tiams, Starbucks or any convenient venues.

Very often it is conducted in a mamak stall over a cup of teh tarik.

In Malaysia it is called a “teh tarik” session or “yum cha” session where drinks or sometimes food are ordered, then the chat begins.

“Kaki” literally means “leg” in the Malay language. When we say teh tarik kaki means a person involved in a teh tarik session.

[* mamak stall, from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A mamak stall, also referred to as mapley, is a food establishment which serves mamak food. In Malaysia, the term mamak refers to Tamil Muslims, who generally own and operate them. Although traditionally operated from roadside stalls, some modern mamak stall operators have expanded their businesses into restaurant or cafe-type establishments. Mamak stalls tend to be popular among Malaysian youths as hang out spots, due to cheap food and beverages being served 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

People of all races, religions and ages frequent mamak stalls to gossip or catch a late-night football game while enjoying a cup of hot teh tarik. No other eatery has quite as much cultural significance in Malaysia, save for the kopi tiam.]
