Tiramisu is traditionally made using coffee. And we honestly have no qualms with that. But seeing as a lot of people are trading in their weekly coffee budgets for milk tea, we thought hey—why not give the people what they want? So this is our riff on the Italian dessert, where we swapped out espresso with what was probably 2019’s drink-of-choice.
We used powdered milk tea mix for our version. (We found that it gave off a very strong, almost in-your-face, milk tea taste.) But feel free to use bottled milk tea from the supermarket. Alternatively, you can even buy a drink from a milk tea shop, then use that. The recipe’s custard uses both mascarpone and cream cheese; and is meant to mimic the cream cheese topping you can get with your milk tea order.
Once you’re done assembling your tea-ramisu, you can fix yourself up a drink with the leftover milk tea and custard. All you need is boba.
