exchanging our Chatime voucher
Just OK 2012-03-27
lol
Since my kids been buying discount voucher Chatime is no exception. But this place is too crowded to have people go in and make order.

The best way is to give your order to friends or family in the counter. Been inside to have 3 person is already crowded especially when they are bringing in some of their items like ice.

The esspresso machine for making coffee.

What thing great about Chatime is not only that you can choose the sweetness of your drink but you can also choose if you like to add your ice in. This is great for take out since the sweetness of your drink will not be lessen by the melting ice.

The sitting area outside Chatime, too few chair and table for family and friend to wait for their order.

The poster of their new and healthier hot drink. Order the soybean buckweat. Don't know if they forgot the sugar or not but the taste is blant.

 

This is our order of the Chocolate Mouse.

 

This are our 3 order from Chatime. Last December when order the Matcha green tea there is a bit of sweetness. So of the drink we order suddenly become tasteless. Don't know if the staff are new. I don't remember what the other drink I order. Too many posting since February.

Recommended Dish(es):
Matcha green tea with pudding 50% sugar zero ice

Tea Time at Chatime
Smile 2011-10-31
Being a big bubble tea brand, not only in Taiwan but also in other parts of the world, it was already expected that Chatime will gain a following in the country. And being a milk tea lover, I cannot let another Taiwanese milk tea store be left untried. So after seeing a branch of Chatime at SM Mall of Asia, we didn't hesitate to enter the already-crowded-store.

It might be a little trivial, but I love Chatime's color scheme -- purple, white and some green. I find it modern and edgy.

 Chatime's Storefront

Going back to our Chatime experience, there were a lot of people flocking at the counter to order, and this made me even more excited to try out their milk tea. However, upon checking their menu, I was actually overwhelmed by how wide their beverage selection is and had become unsure if I'll get something else instead of the plain milk tea.

 Chatime's Wide Beverage Selection

They have Mellow Milk Tea, Smoothies Series, Coffee, Energetic Healthy Juices, Oriental Pop Tea, QQ Jelly, Chatime Special Mix, Chatime Mousse and plain Fresh Tea.

   Roasted Milk Tea Large (P85)

As much as I wanted to try other beverages at Chatime, I just opted for their large Roasted Milk Tea (P85) so I can compare it to other milk teas I've tried. I had it at 30% sugar level which I think was a bad move since it lacked the sweetness I want. However, it still tasted good and you can really tell that they used fresh brewed good quality tea.

   Taiwan Mango QQ Regular (P85)

On the other hand, my date ordered a regualr-sized Taiwan Mango QQ (P85). Being a very curious soul, I had to take a sip from it. And comparing it to my Roasted Milk Tea, I love the Taiwan Mango QQ more! It was a refreshing Mango yet citrusy tea drink with nata de coco and black pearl.

THE VERDICT

Honestly, I cannot directly compare Gong Cha, Bubble Tea and Chatime's milk tea head to head as I had the latter's milk tea in 30% sugar level. However, if I take the wideness of the variety into consideration, Chatime will be the winner as it offers more types of beverages.

In terms of taste though, I will have to go back soon and fall in line at the always-crowded counter of Chatime to try their Roasted Milk Tea again, and sample the other beverages they offer.

CHATIME with FRIENDS
Smile 2011-09-09
There is always something new in Mall of Asia. It is the best destination for families and friends. My friend sand I usually get to hang out in here until wee hours. In one of our session I invited them to join me and try the Chatime experience. Eversince I tasted one I just cannot control the pang and the nagging desire it having it everytime I went out for malling.
The very first time I met this Milk Tea shop was at the Robinsons Galleria mall where I am a frequent mall goer. It was like a ripple effect that I was able to share my happy experience with Chatime. I can tediously wait for my milk tea fix even if there is an impending long lines before me.

The menu. A lot of options to choose from. There's Mellow Milk Tea, Smoothie Series, Chatime Special Mix, Oriental Pop Tea, QQ Jelly, Coffee, Fresh Tea, Energetic Healthy Juice and Chatime Mousse. Everything in here are contemporary and original Taiwanese flavor. I already miss my college friend Rinka who is now studying in Taiwan and wanted to put up a business like this because in there tea drinking is not just fashion but a way of life already. Oww how I wish it may come true it will surely be a hit.

We gladly placed our order and we were given this black flashy disc which will light up and buzz once your order was assembled already and ready for pick up at the counter area. I am clueless as to how many feet or meters away can this buzzing and lighting disc can go.Wow! Pending numbers nowadays can now be replaced with this awesome thing. (See my next review with video on how this disc buzz and light) Amazing! Just watch out for it tongue

 

These are our orders.
Two Pearl Milk Tea and two Mango Slush only for the four gals who simply love Par-TEA-ing tongue

 

My one and only Pearl Milk Tea. My fave under the Mellow Milk Tea category. How really satisfying and and such a refreshing good tea time. Who says tea cannot be refreshing. Hit Chatime nearest you and see for yourself smile

OOooppsie..theirs were done and gone but my large Pearl Milk Tea is still being enjoyed by me. What a refreshing milk tea. So good!

Good Tea. Good Time!
