By the looks of the two-hour wait to order, it seems they’re onto something far greater than just a cheesy joke.
Actually it’s the melted cream cheese with the whipping cream, milk and a little bit of salt to give it the sweet and savory taste.
When making the drink, the cheese is gently poured on top of the sweet tea drink, so that when it’s served, there are distinct layers of tea and cheese.The trend has been on the rise for a few years in countries including China, Malaysia and Taiwan.
