So 8th November…National Cappuccino Day!
We all love a cappuccino right? or maybe you’re more of a latte lover? mocha mad?
We thought we’d take a look into what our international counterparts were enjoying instead of our standard cappuccino, and here it is…..
MILK CAP TEA
Never heard of it? Us neither but i certainly sounds interesting! This mysterious tea beverage has taken root around the country with a uniqueness in flavour and texture. Less than a year ago, the trendy drink landed in Dongguan among anticipation and thirst. Some may say this is another milk tea revolution from Taiwan, following the widely spread bubble milk tea shops with a few new items added to the already long tea menu.
The beverage is similar to a cappuccino with a spooned, thick milky layer on top. Appropriately, it has been dubbed the Chinese cappuccino, but it looks more like beer with green or black tea on the bottom. It is often enjoyed cold. The secret lies in the two to three centimeters of foam layered on top. The combination of milk, cream, salt or cheese (yes, cheese…) is beaten into a frothy form. The quality of the ingredients and the ratio between milk and cheese can affect the texture and flavour.
The popular drinking method is to dip the front lip in like drinking a beer. The creamy, salty and cheesy foam hits your tongue first, followed by the fresh fragrant tea. The contrasts of warmth and chilliness, sweet and salty, milk and tea fragrances form a special sensation that neither coffee nor tea can offer.

Also our Vegan Chocolate Miso won a Great Taste award this year!
Judges comments were:
*The chocolate flavour was deep and rich and was complemented by the savouriness of the miso paste*
*A wonderfully smooth texture which just melted in the mouth. Very well executed*
*A very enjoyable smooth chocolate ice cream which carries a really good richness, the texture is very good*
*The savoury notes and touch of salt just add a tiny point of difference to the ice. We enjoyed this and found it quite moreish!*
*A beautiful looking product. Rich chocolate flavours with umami and saltiness from the miso and coconut following through. Smooth and velvety and incredibly indulgent. A fabulous long lasting balance*
Ever wonder how authentic some ingredients really are? Well we like to use only the best ingredients from around the world and were going to show you..
Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
We use Grade 3 matcha powder from organic gardens in Japan. Each batch is milled into a powder freshly before shipping to the UK which we then infuse with our low fat ice cream base mix to bring the authentic taste of Japanese matcha to you.
Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream
Our black sesame seeds are sourced from ** which we then toast by hand and grind into a fine powder before adding into our mix and freezing, this ensures the rich nutty aroma comes through in every mouthful.
For every batch we brew up a fresh lot of Sang Tao Trung Nguyen coffee right the way from Vietnam, we use a coffee drip and add lashings of condensed milk…just the way it should be. Vietnamese coffee is known for being much richer with a chocolaty aroma.
We have some brilliant news that we can finally share with you…. our brand new flavour YUZU SORBET has been awarded 3 stars in the 2017 Great Taste Awards!
We are over the moon that we have been chosen as an award winning producer for the 5th year in a row..lets take a little look at our Great Taste journey.
Below are some of the comments from the judging panel:
This is a perfect palate cleanser, a beautifully made sorbet, with an interesting and unusual taste. We found the taste to be somewhere between grapefruit and mandarin, very refreshing with a great texture.
A very fresh mouthful of citrus. Clean and tangy with some subtle hints of floral – almost perfumed – there is a mix of lemon/orange/grapefruit characters all combined in the yuzu juice. There is a perfumed blossomy note which we like – a smooth sorbet – very cleansing.
Very smooth textured sorbet. We love the bitter edge alongside the fruitiness of the yuzu. Extremely pleasing and easy to eat. Light and fragrant.
A lovely soft, light but almost creamy texture. Really refreshing. Packed with lovely sharp citrus flavours.
