From the earlier Cheese Tea recipe, I have been getting quite a lot of people asking me that is is possible to not use cream cheese powder, where cream cheese powder is not available in their local pastry or grocery shop. Hence I further develop the Cheese tea recipe, make some adjustments, and came up with this revised version of Cheese Tea recipe with much simpler ingredients but achieving the same flavor outcome!

The previous version of the recipe here.

Heytea is still the King of Cheese Tea

Well, up to date, I had tried almost every brand that available in town, Heytea is still the best Cheese Tea maker in town, perhaps in the world. They are the very reason Cheese Tea has gain so much popularity across the world. Read more here about how Cheese Tea becomes a phenomenon in China.

Still waiting for the day for Heytea to shows up in Malaysia. Currently, they are only available in China and Singapore.

But worry not my Cheese Tea recipe is identical to Heytea’s flavor, try it out. I assure you this recipe does not disappoint!

Author have a say…

The previous cheese tea recipe, I’ve made it with the combination of cream cheese block and cream cheese powder. However, I’ve got plenty of requests asking where do they get the right cream cheese powder, the preferred cream cheese brand, etc. Hence, noticing the difficulties of trying to follow the cheese tea recipe, I’ve taken my time to remake and revise the cheese tea recipe! I have it further simplified with the same flavor outcome and this time it is really easy to be made!

    Hi I love your recipe. I want to make a big batch but is not sure how long it’ll be good for. Can you let me know? Is it good for maybe 2 days? 4 days? A week? Or maybe longer if I freeze it?

    Thank you!!

    • Ethan Wong

      The maximum number of days I tried keeping them is about 4 days.
      You cannot freeze them

    • Zaafira

      3-5 days in the refrigerator

        What brand of whipping cream you used?

        • Ethan Wong

          Anchor or Emborg.

          They taste rather similar, the cream cheese that will determine the flavor.
          So far, the best tasting I’ve tried is with Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

  3. Tintin

    Thanks for sharing the recipe, will definitely give this a shot.

    PS: You have a typo on *Cheese Batter*, the recipe would read much better with the correct spelling. Kudos!

    This perfectly replicates the cheese tea at my favorite boba shop! Thank you so much! 😀 Can’t wait to try Heytea someday.

    • Ethan Wong

      Great! I made this recipe before cheese tea became a hit out of China.
      Back then there wasn’t any cheese foam recipe that was build to mimic the flavor of Heytea.

    Hello! I’m trying to be dairy free, can I sub whole milk with almond milk?

    • Ethan Wong

      Hey! yes whole milk can be substituted with almond milk, but the cream and cheese is still dairy

    This tastes p much identical, I’m so impressed!! Great recipe 🙂

  10. Jocelyn

    Eager to try. Any reason to use the UHT type whipping cream?

    • Ethan Wong

      You will need the cream to keep them light and fluffy. Otherwise, the cheese would be too thick.

    I made this using store brand whipping cream and cream cheese, and it turned out delicious. The topping is pretty versatile and can be used for desserts. I added it to fresh fruit for a delicious dessert.

    • Ethan Wong

      Hey Angela!
      Sounds awesome, keep it up!
      The whole idea is to be creative, basically, any recipes act as a guide, and it is up to us to innovate with local ingredients.
      Once you experiment more with your locally available ingredients, technically you can cook anywhere in the world.

    hi ethan! first of all, thank you for the amazing recipe that i was looking for this whole time! i just wondering if i can burnt it on the surface just like daboba drinks? thank you in advance!

    • Ethan Wong

      Hey, those burn top on boba drinks is burned brown sugar.

      so you can do so by sprinkling some brown sugar or regular white sugar on top then use a torch to burn them to caramelized them.
