What’s up, hype-hunters! Previously, social media was exploding with these posts about the Unicorn Frappe from Starbucks and now, a new drink craze is taking over Asia. Cheese Tea. It’s gotten so popular that people are touting it as the new Unicorn Frappe. Does cheese tea even taste good? I know, it sounds super weird to me so we’re here today at LiHo, the first place in Singapore to offer cheese tea and we’re gonna try it and see if it’s worth the hype! So because this is so new, they’re limiting the sale to 50 cups a day so yeah, you gotta get here early. Yeah so it’s about 12.15pm now It just opened and already there’s quite a few people in front of us. 7 people. So, we’re gonna go order ourselves some cheese tea. Jem: I am quite nervous…
Roz: I don’t know I like cheese, actually we both love cheese but… I don’t know how it’s gonna taste like in a drink. What is the cheese tea made of? Basically when we get it, the texture is supposed to be… It’s just… foam? It’s like cheese foam? Ah…okay! We got one already And that’s quite a generous amount of cheese. It was at least a good 4 to 5 scoops of cheese foam there. So we have gotten our drinks. Here we have Yup, I’m actually excited to try it. So am I. ‘Cause somehow the pastel colours just makes it look very pretty to drink. So this part you see here is a layer of cheese foam and this part’s the mango. So I’m just gonna try the foam part first. Yup, ready? Okay. Cheers! I’m confused. Yeah me too, I can’t decide if it’s good or not. It’s savoury… tastes like cheesecake! Oh my god, I was just gonna say it tastes like the cheese tart that we had during that cheese tart episode. The inside of the cheese tart. But I think if you drink too much of that, it’s very overwhelming. The first sip was pretty good. Let’s poke a straw in and just try the bottom. This is good. This is really yummy! It tastes like potong ice cream but melted, in a good way! You don’t like that, do you? No no no, it’s not that I don’t like it but the texture is kinda weird because this was so thick and viscous that I was expecting this to be the same. It’s really refreshing so… I guess it’s a good balance. Aww you look so upset, Roz! So underwhelming compared to the other 2 drinks. I wanna try. Oh. I would say drink this first then drink that one. This actually just tastes like very normal green tea I feel very suspicious of how it’s gonna taste when you mix it with the cheese. Now it just looks like milk. Like a milkshake. Tastes like a really bland smoothie. I do not like this at all. Roz: Can’t really taste the cheese foam anymore.
Jem: Yah, I was gonna say Jem: we totally neutralized it.
Roz: I can still taste a tinge of the green tea There’s a weird aftertaste too. There’s a very dry taste on my tongue like there’s a layer of something on it, right? Yah. This one is a… no. So here is the mango one. You wanna do the honours this time? Shake it like a polaroid picture~ I stirred it for like, I don’t know, a good 30 seconds and it’s still white and yellow. ‘Cause you’re weak sauce! Oh my gosh, this is so tiring! See what I did there? I went “Oh, it’s not stirring!” then made Jem do all the work. Oh… Jem: So smart.
Roz: Oh! I realised I shouldn’t raise my arm because I have a hold in my shirt… But it’s okay, it’s a good shirt so I still wear it anyway. Okay… The cheese now enhances the mango taste. The mango taste is like… Stronger, it’s like…more mango. Not bad. Don’t tell me yet! Oh. It became watery. The cheese, the creamer, whatever kinda like waters down the yam taste so it’s not as strong. I think my main gripe is this doesn’t taste special when it’s mixed but when it’s separate it’s so unique you can get it anywhere else… and that is where I think you’re putting your money down and why you’re queuing up. I think it would be a great drink to try for the very first time but I don’t think these are drinks that you can drink every day. I think you could say that about most hyped drinks though, like the Unicorn Frappe we definitely wouldn’t have more than once but people still went crazy about it. Eugh I don’t think I would even finish that one drink. Now people are queuing up because they’re only offering 50 cups a day but if they keep it on the menu, I don’t think people will line up for it anymore It’ll be like the kind of drink that you walk past, “Hey, cheese tea! Let me get one.” A drink like this is $4 The smoothies are $6.90. I think that’s quite reasonable actually. I guess it’s kinda reasonable, you might think, for a drink but if you go to a bubble tea shop this would be $3 something? I don’t think any of the other bubble tea shops offer smoothies and it’s a pretty big cup so I would say this is worth it Roz: but this, for green tea and a layer of foam…
Jem: Yah it’s a bit funky. Just slightly pricey. Let’s just say on 1, 2, 3, whether it’s worth the hype ok? So 1! 2! 3! Really!? I feel like it’s not worth the hype because when I drank it, Yah, mm, interesting, I didn’t mind it but it didn’t blow my mind So… It’s a no. Well I mean I think it’s good that we differ ’cause then you get to see both sides of the story. Hey guys! So I know I initially said it was worth the hype but I need to change my verdict ’cause it’s been a whole day I’m at home now and… the more time went by I just felt the drink got grosser and grosser There was this very clawing taste on my tongue and… even after I ate a few meals I could still kinda taste the residue and it was very… Now when I think of it I shudder a little bit. I think I got trauma. Maybe when I first tried it, I was like oh it’s so different from everything else so unique so I was like hmm, maybe I’ll like it, but the more time went by and now I’m just like…eugh cannot cannot cannot. So I gotta change my verdict, sorry it’s not worth the hype. Okay guys, we’ve come to the end of the episode. Hope you guys enjoyed this very cheesy episode.
