Yes, we said 'Cheese Tea'!

The questionable-sounding beverage originated in Taiwan five years ago, is still ridiculously popular in China, UK and is now available in the United States.

Slowly this trendy drink is going global.

Nie Yunchen, CEO of HeyTea, told Condé Nast Traveler:

“Tea culture has a long history in China already, but bitterness at the beginning when people drink it is off-putting for some younger people. We wanted to add a new flavor that young people would like.”

“The rich cheese foam makes the tea taste even better. After we launched the product, over five years ago, the younger crowd tried it and loved it. It’s still our most popular beverage,” Yunchen added.

Despite the unexpected pairing of those two words, those who have tried it say that it tastes like a "refreshing tea milkshake" and a proper sip will leave you with an Instagram-worthy cheese mustache.

Not yet available in Ireland but surely a nation that loves an cupan tae will at least like this Instagram trendy drink.
