Cheese tea: the improbable new food fad going mainstream

It sounds ridiculous but cheese tea is tipped as one of the big food trends of 2019, according to the New York Times which dubbed it “the thing you will try against your better judgement”. First concocted in the famed night markets of Taiwan, cheese tea is a cold tea, usually green or black, topped with a thick layer of salted cheese cream foam.

Over the last 12 months, Asian cheese tea franchise Happy Lemon has opened stores in Melbourne and Sydney, bubble tea multinationals such as Gong Cha and Chatime have promoted the cheese teas on their menus, and now many local stores have also launched to meet the new demand, such as Gotcha, TMix and Teaser, to name but three.
