By now a familiar face to Aussie bubble tea aficionados, Taiwan-founded chain Chatime boasts over 120 local venues. And these guys aren't mucking around when it comes to options, either. Not only will you find a sprawling lineup of drink styles, but also a hefty selection of mix-ins to jazz up your tea — from classic tapioca balls and popping pearls, to jellies, coconut bits and creamy matcha mousse.
Pick your favourites and get busy customising your ultimate blend. There are milky concoctions made on all array of different tea varieties, fruit-infused black and green tea blends, and even a series of sparkling tea fusions for something a little bit fancy.
While this store is located on Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn, you can find a Chatime basically within a five-kilometre radius of wherever you are in Melbourne. Without mentioning them all, the chain has stores in the CBD, Brunswick, Sunshine, Broadmeadows, Epping, Doncaster and Glen Waverley.
