Red bean ice is a drink commonly found in Hong Kong. It is usually served in restaurants like cha chaan teng. It is a popular dessert in summer. The standard ingredients include adzuki beans, light rock sugar syrup, and evaporated milk. It is often topped with ice cream to become a dessert known as red bean ice cream freeze (simplified Chinese: 雪糕红豆冰; traditional Chinese: 雪糕紅荳冰).
Red bean ice tea has been around since the 1970s. Some places which serve the drink add in chewy flavoured jelly.
