Good Tea, Good Time at Chatime Broadway

Known as the #1 Bubble Tea brand in the world, Chatime delivers high quality drinks in a very customizable orders. Chatime is a franchise that originated in Taiwan 30 years ago and quickly became a global brand, expanding to over 1200 locations worldwide and now is also in Vancouver!

Chatime recently opened three convenient locations in the Vancouver area:
  • 1274 Robson Street, Downtown, Vancouver, BC
  • 1545 W. Broadway, Vancouver, BC 
  • 450-9100 Blundell Road, Richmond, BC

I was invited to try the drinks at Chatime by at the Broadway location. The drinks were comped by Chatime but my opinions are my own.

Chatime has perfected tea making. To ensure consistency throughout their stores worldwide, Chatime came up with high-tech tea machines that make quality fresh tea with precise proportion, timing and temperature. This guarantees your second drink will be just as good as the first.

Chatime's Top 10 drinks:
  1. Pearl Milk Tea 
  2. Grass Jelly Roasted Milk Tea 
  3. Taro Pudding Milk Tea 
  4. Brown Rice Green Milk Tea 
  5. Taiwan Mango QQ 
  6. Matcha Red Bean Milk Tea 
  7. Mango Smoothie 
  8. Red Bean Pearl Milk Tea 
  9. Matcha Tea Latte 
  10. Chocolate Mousse 

Your drink is customizable; you are able to control the sugar level as well as ice options of your drink.

There are also 8 toppings that you can add for 50 cents more:

pearls, grass jelly, coconut jelly, red bean, coffee jelly, aloe vera, rainbow jelly, pudding.

We tried a few of drinks from the top ten.

The friend I brought along ordered the Pearl Milk Tea. She said she always likes to order the default milk tea to judge a place. She was impressed. She said it reminded her of Taiwan.

I had a sample and I thought it tasted really good, too. The pearls were so soft and had just the right texture. Chatime apparently discards the pearls they make frequently so that they ensure that they are always fresh. They also only use the highest quality tea leaves sourced directly from Taiwan; they even have their own tea farm to ensure quality!

The Matcha Red Bean Milk Tea was delicious. I wish I had asked for half sweet though. All the drinks I tried, I think could be half sweet. The Mango smoothie was Chatime never uses any powder only fruit juice. K and I could taste the difference.

I tried the Taiwan Mango QQ as well. Even at 50% sugar, it still had pretty sweet mango taste. I liked it!

What a great bubble tea shop! I loved how customizable your drink is. It's no wonder it became the #1 bubble tea brand in the world. Chatime is a great place to grab something to go if you are feeling thirsty!
