  • 12 grams oolong tea leaves (about 4 ounces)(I used Tieguanyin)
  • cups water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, plus 1½ tablespoons
  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries (rinsed, hulled and cut into ½-inch cubes)

Cheese Topping:

  • 20 grams cream cheese (about 0.7 ounces)(at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt or sea salt


  • In a medium pot, add tea leaves and water. Cook over medium heat for 11 minutes. It should just come to a boil. Strain the tea into a glass pitcher. Reserve the tea leaves for other use. Add 3 tablespoons sugar into the tea and stir to melt. Transfer the pitcher into the fridge and chill until cold, about 6 hours.
  • In a blender, add cold tea, strawberry cubes and 1½ tablespoons. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust with more sugar if needed. Place the blender container along with the tea to the fridge and keep cold.
  • Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese for 1 minute. Add milk and beat for another 2 minutes. Add whipping cream, sugar and salt. Beat until no lumps and foamy, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour the tea into 2 serving glasses until 4/5 full. Top with cheese topping. Stir and serve immediately.


  1. Tieguanyin can be ordered here. If you can’t find tieguanyin, use green tea or black tea.
  2. Taste to see if your strawberries are sweet or tart. If they are sweet, you may want to reduce the amount of sugar that add with the strawberries. 
  3. If you don’t want cheese topping, just skip it. The strawberry tea is good on its own.
