I love milk tea. Even if I’m trying to control my intake of sugar, there are times when I can’t resist the call of a good drink. And when it comes to milk tea, one of the places I like is Chatime. Now, there are more reasons to love the Taiwanese brand as they launched eight new drinks at a one-weekend Innovation Bar at SM Aura.
Last July 6 and 7 at the SM Aura Atrium, we got to try eight exclusive drinks: Cheese Swirl Taro Milk Tea, Cheese Swirl Dragonfruit Smoothie, Cookie Cheese Swirl Milk Tea, Thai Milk Tea with Purple Sticky Rice, Lychee Green Tea with Grapefruit Pulp, Peach Green Tea with Orange Pulp, Sparkling Grapefruit with Agar Jelly, and Lemon Sunset Tea with Agar Jelly.
These drinks are still not available in the market but the Innovation Bar is now available in selected stores in Makati, BGC, and premiere malls. I hope they’ll launch these drinks because I’d love to try the rest. I got the Cookie Cheese Swirl Milk Tea and enjoyed its refreshing flavor.
The Tea Tap and Innovation Bar is a fun experience since it evokes the spirit of beers on tap. The system includes a beverage cooler that ensures that the tea and milk tea are fresh and cold the entire time. It’s also not just for aesthetic purposes. The Innovation Bar keeps the tea less diluted since there is less need for ice. It’s also more hygienic as it also minimizes the exposure of tea to the elements.
To add to this celebration, Chatime opened its 100th store in Abreeza Mall, Davao City. With so many branches around the country, I won’t have to crave for milk tea again.
It may be the rainy season already but it’s still the perfect time for Chatime!
