Preparation

  1. Make the cotton candy: Let the machine heat for 10 minutes before using, then turn off.
  2. Add the yellow hard candy and superfine sugar to the machine, then turn back on. When you see the cotton candy web begin, hold a wooden skewer into the center at a 45° angle and spin to collect the candy. Once some candy has accumulated, hold the skewer horizontally to collect the rest, moving from side to side for even distribution.
  3. Secure the skewer with the cotton candy to a table sign holder and set aside.
  4. Make the royal milk tea: Add the tea leaves into a small bowl. Pour the boiling water over the tea so the leaves are just covered. Steep for 2–3 minutes..
  5. Add the milk, steeped tea, and sugar to a small pot over medium heat. Cover and bring to just below boiling. Uncover, stir, and strain to remove the tea leaves.
  6. Meanwhile, pour hot water into a teacup. Let sit to warm the cup until ready to serve.
  7. Pour the hot water out of the cup, then pour in the milk tea.
  8. Set the teacup beneath the cotton candy cloud and watch the rain fall.
  9. Enjoy!
