Despite dairy not being very big in Japan, cheese tea (cold tea topped with milk foam and cream cheese) has managed to become a trend and you can get it all over Tokyo. It's so popular, in fact, that a major toy manufacturer like Megahouse has created something called the Angel Cheese Tea Maker which is a fast and very easy way to make your own cheese toppings for your tea. And even though this was made as a toy, it is a genuinely useful and practical cooking tool for your kitchen!
The Angel Cheese Tea Maker is in essence two parts: the mixer where you can make the cream cheese filling (or any other cream, actually) and the piping tool that you can use to serve the cream on your tea. Both tools are manual, so are safe even for children, and it only takes a couple of minutes to get a thick and foamy cream that will give your tea - or any other beverage for that matter - a complete makeover. Oh, and you can also use it for icing cakes or other desserts too!
