What is cheese tea?
Cheese tea is made with any type of tea and a cheese mixture that varies. Some cheese tea blends are made with cheese and a mixture of cream cheese, condensed milk, and heavy cream, although there are more variations of cheese tea cheese. The cheese is whipped into a frothy texture and then poured straight on top of the cup of iced tea. Cheese tea is said to taste more dessert-like than savory.

How do I try cheese tea?
For those of you brave enough to want to try cheese tea, some bubble tea shops carry the drink. It is sold in tea shops in many major cities but if one near you does not carry it yet, fear not.

Once I figure out a way to make the frothy cheese, there will be a recipe!
