Most of you would have tried one of Taiwan’s famous beverages – the bubble tea, at one stage during your life and Chatime is no exception. Chatime is a tea cafe offering authentic tea experience and is known as the fresh tea specialist in Taiwan.
Chatime Tea and Coffee is a well-known bubble tea brand in the Asia-pacific region, while providing Melbournians the luxury in enjoying fast and delicious beverages to help quench the thirst of those thirsty patrons.
Whenever I see a bubble tea store, it is generally a must stop place for me. This is a great thirst quencher which goes well with anything you eat from burgers to noodles to fries etc.
I ordered a large tea to share with Plus 1. There was a short wait as all drinks are made to order.
Kumquat Green Tea – I asked for 25% sugar and 25% ice with pearls. With the reduced amount of sugar the drink was fairly tart, as you would guess kumquat is not the sweetest of fruits you can get. But was a good welcoming cold drink. the bubbles flavourless but soft and chewy. the bubbles (pearl).
To be honest with all the various branded shops serving bubble tea, I cannot taste the difference. but then again I am no connoisseur. I do notice some shops offer more or less flavours, so it really depends which stall is closest to you at the time you are wanting some bubble tea.
