Chatime is located in Agana Shopping Center next to Payless Supermarket. It is a café specializing in what many call “bubble” or “boba” tea which is a Taiwanese based tea (most commonly added with large, chewy tapioca pearls) invented in Taichung in the 1980s. There are quite a few places to get this type of tea on the island, but Chatime is our favorite for its authentic flavor and variety of drinks offered. The company has over 1,000 stores worldwide, so they must be doing something right!
If you have never had bubble tea before (and even if you have) choosing what to drink can seem a bit daunting. The menu is divided into milk teas, fruit teas, pop (popular) teas, smoothies and coffee. They have blended drink options as well.
First, choose what size (regular or large) and type of tea (or other drink) you would like, add your topping (pearl, grass jelly, pudding, coconut jelly, coffee jelly, red bean or rainbow jelly), sugar percentage (0%, 30%, 80% or regular), how much ice you would like (none, less, regular) and whether you want it hot or cold.
If it is your first time having bubble tea, I recommend pearl milk tea. Our favorites are Jasmine or Tieguanyin tea with tapioca pearls, 50% sugar and less ice.
Chatime has also added food items to their menu! They have paninis, wraps, chicken wings, waffles, French fries, lumpia , funnel cake and assorted desserts.
Also, your bubble tea will come in a cup with a sealed plastic top. Just punch your straw (which is big enough for the tapioca pearls to go through, if you choose to get them) through the top and enjoy!
Cha means tea in Chinese. I love tea and Chatime is teatime anytime!
