In a typical tea restaurant or noodles place from part II, drinks come with a combo. For example, if you order a fish ball rice noodles, you get a drink for +3 to 5 HKD. If you order a drink separately, it costs about HKD 10.

Typical drinks include: milk tea, coffee, yuan yeung (mix of milk tea and coffee), lemon water, lemon water with honey, lemon tea, Horlicks, and Ovaltine. You can have them hot or cold. Cold drinks usually charge +2 to 4 HKD more.
