A lot of people eat Cheese. A lot of people drink Tea. However, not too many people have had the combination together until recently. There is a food trend made with cheese and tea, and people are loving it. After all, there are many dishes with cheese included in it. Cheese is so versatile that that it can be on your hamburger, in your salad, on your pizza, and even in your cake. Someone came up with the idea to put it in a drink. So, is it a food or a drink? It is sold as a beverage, but enjoyed as both.

Cheese tea

The Food Network gives cheese tea a thumb's up.

The network explains that cheese tea is a real food trend that has become quite popular in Asian markets over the past few years, and recently has made it way into the United States and is spreading to other continents. The cheesy beverage originated in Taiwan and was sold on the streets. Then it became popular in other places. Now it is gaining popularity around the world. So far, it is available in Boston, New York, and San Francisco.

Jenny Zheng, the owner of Little Fluffy Head Cafe in Los Angeles, says it's not just cheese and tea. She explains that there is a tea base at the bottom that's topped off with cheese cream. Zheng makes a fresh batch of cheese tea at her establishment daily, and none is thrown away at the end of the day because her customers love it so much.

You will soon be able to purchase the beverage from your local cafe.

Drink it to believe it

When people first hear about cheese tea, they might think it is melted cheddar, provolone, feta, or some other cheese added to Lipton tea. However, that is not the case at all. Cheese tea is actually a cup of tea that has been topped off with about an inch of whipped cheese that is similar to cream cheese.

The item looks similar to a coffee drink with foam on the top. Therefore, a person would not know it was cheese tea until he drinks it. The trendy drink could be compared to a Frappuccino that is always available at Starbucks. It can be consumed either hot or cold, and will taste just as delicious.

Jeannie Mai, the Asian co-host on the daytime talk show "The Real," introduced cheese tea to her co-hosts.

She was excited to share the product since it originated in her country. The ladies loved it after Jeannie explained what it was.

The thought of drinking tea with cheese in it turns some people off. That's because they have been accustomed to eating cheese and drinking tea but not having rhe two together. Admittedly, it will take a brave person to try it. To the other folks, the saying, "Don't knock it until you try it" applies to them. Would you try cheese tea? Do you think you would like it?
