Mamak Terminology

So here I am trying to study, and Karen is being really supportive and helping me make a drink to keep me awake. It is a combination of Milo and Nescafe.

Here's the question: for the life of me, I can't remember what I would say to the mamak in Malaysia if I wanted this drink?

I know that:
1) Teh + Kopi = Cham
2) Teh + Milo = A scolding from the mamak - Lu gila ka? (Are you mad?)
but what do you call Milo+Kopi?

Thanks for helping me put this annoying question out of my head, once and for all!

Mamak, teh tarik tak mau tarik satu! (Mamak, one pulled tea, but hold the pull, thanks!)

Just out of curiosity... has anyone actually ever tried Milo plus tea? (Miteh?)
