Anyone likes almond tea? Heng jin teh? Heng jin is almond in Hokkien, and people usually eat it with yiu char koay. According to online and newspaper resources, there are 2 stalls in Penang that are famous for this drink. The owners are brothers who sell tong sui in push-stalls. The one I went to was at Kimberly Street.
I love almond cookies so I thought almond tea should be as nice. Turns out that almond tea tastes very awful (for me) because of its very strong medicine smell, like cough mixture. I only managed a few spoonful, then I gave up. For some, it even smells like cockroach lol. Anyway I just tried this out of curiosity because it is said to be a common drink in Penang. Honestly I have never seen anyone selling this drink in Bukit Mertajam.. maybe it’s an island thing.
