Add some fruity goodness or a bit of chocolate and you’ve got the cheesecake you never knew you needed.
If you’re keen to try it out for yourself, here are some of the best places to get a hit of this next-level drink in Perth.

Honey Crème’s cheese tea is the original trendsetter in Perth. They started off with three flavours in 2018, with the classic mango, watermelon, and berry, and since then they’ve added rockmelon and peach to their menu. If you want a taste of cheesecake with any of their other flavours, just ask for cheese foam on top—it’s definitely worth exploring.
You can find Utopias all over the city, so no matter where you go you're always within reach of cheese tea. They have plenty of traditional tea flavours, from oolong and rose oolong, to camellia and ceylon, so you can have your usual tea order with a little bit of a twist. For those with a bit of a sweet tooth, there’s even a chocolate cheese latte, which is sure to make your morning coffee run a bit more exciting.
If you’re after more cheese tea, then head to Tea More. They have an amazing array of cheese teas, with flavours that everyone will enjoy. Try their strawberry, mango or peach cheese tea for a fruity flavour, or their matcha cheese tea for a bit of kick. There’s even an Oreo cheese tea, and if you’re a fan of their sweet teas, like the crème brulee, you can even add a cheese topping.
These guys really are cheese tea royalty. They’ve gone full steam ahead with the cheese tea trend, and you can add cheese foam to any one of their amazing drinks. From fruity flavours like grape and dragon fruit to the sweeter teas like matcha oreo and crème brulee, they’ve got your cheese tea needs covered.
This cafe hasn’t officially hit the streets of Perth yet, but it’s sure to be amazing. They’ll be serving up some great bubble tea, and hopefully some cheese tea too.
