Chinese "Milk Tea"

A Chinese student of mine sometimes brings me ordinary "milk tea" in the morning from a Chinese bakery. It's so delicious. On my way home tonight I was walking down Grand street and decided to go in a bakery to get some. It's available everywhere in Chinatown. They had several cups already poured behind the counter, and gave me one instantly as I was ordering. It is a little bit sweet, and has a very strong and delicious flavor. What's the deal? Why is it so much better than the "regular" American style tea with milk? I could drink a gallon. Even as I'm writing this the aroma of the used teabag in the empty cup next to me is filling the air, making me want to venture out for some more.
