Japanese Milk Tea (recipe / brand you've tried)

OK, sound off you tea drinkers. I'm usually the kind of guy who drinks Chinese herbal tea straight up or tea bags with some condense milk as the sweetener but I also enjoy a Tim Horton's steeped tea on occasion. For home replication purposes, I use English Breakfast. Recently tried these milk tea that's from Japan and it's quite good.

It's quite popular -- I found it a bit too sweet for my taste, but it's also very close to the Hong Kong style milk tea.

I tried making it home and it's pretty close. You would think the name says it all but yeah, basically I used 1:1 water, milk ratio.

Checked out some Youtube video on various varieties of tea and didn't realize there were so many. Didn't even realize bubble tea uses ground tea leaves; at least according to one recipe I saw. Always thought tea was stepped either in a bag or tea pot.
