Sea Salt Foam Iced Green Tea

Cool and refreshing Iced Green Tea with a creamy Sea Salt Foam topping.  Inspired by the famous 85C Taiwanese bakery, this tea foam copycat recipe tastes just like the original without all the carbs!

If you love specialty drinks from boba shops, you are going to love this sea salt foam iced green tea recipe.  But beware, this drink can be very addicting!

The creamy frothiness paired with a hint of salt layered over refreshing aromatic sweetened jasmine tea is really what dreams are made of!

What is Sea Salt Foam Iced Green Tea?

This drink was inspired by the famous Taiwanese bakery named, 85C Bakery.  What makes 85C bakery special is that their sea salt foam drinks are just as well known as their fresh baked breads because they are just that good.

This recipe is a low carb sugar free copycat using a monkfruit erthyritiol blend sweetener, heavy cream and sea salt.  The mixture is beaten until a thick creamy froth foam forms then it is topped over iced green tea.  The combination is something to be marveled at.  Trust me!

What kind of tea works best for a iced tea sea salt foam recipe?

I always prefer using loose leaf jasmine (or oolong) tea brewed very strongly for maximum aroma and tea flavor.

Should I use loose leaf tea or tea bags to brew the tea?

Try to use loose leaf because it will taste more authentic like the original.

Any tips for making this iced green tea sea salt foam recipe?

  • Make sure to brew the tea for at least 5 minutes for a strong brew or use more tea leaves.
  • Use my favorite bottom dispensing tea pot for brewing loose leaf tea.
  • Use a hand or stand mixer to make the foam.
  • Store the extra in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

      Hello! We pour the tea directly over ice, but if you have the time, you can chill in the refrigerator instead.
