I miss my former officemates who are usually game to order food or drinks during office hours. I miss our halo-halo merienda breaks, McDonald’s breakfast meals and milk tea order fiasco. I still remember the days when we were so addicted to milk tea. We usually order from Chatime or Serenitea. But ever since our office moved to Fort Bonifacio, we usually order from Chatime.

I usually order Chocolate Mousse, 30% sugar, less ice. But there was one time when I was feeling a wee bit adventurous and changed my order to Banana Cocoa (PHP90 | Regular).

Ever since the drinks I ordered arrived after 2 hours, I was forever tagged as cursed when it comes to ordering and it was my free pass from collecting orders and placing it. Weee! 10084

Anyway, our beloved newbies were the ones who placed the orders and our drinks arrived within 30 minutes.

My Banana Cocoa tasted a bit weird and reminded me of this banana candy from the same manufacturer as Skittles and left to dissolve in a cold chocolate drink. Perhaps I was in an adjustment phase as my taste buds were yearning for Chocolate Mousse. But I still didn’t like it. It was a bit too sweet and artificial for me.

I guess I’ll stick with classic milk tea, green tea or my favorite Chocolate Mousse. 128513

I had a bit of a revival of interest in these Taiwanese Milk Tea stores recently, with my colleagues regularly buying Serenitea or Chatime. I just had Chatime Milk Tea from a day before this, so when i was in SM Aura last Sat, I thought of buying their Banana Milk Tea. It's also reminiscent of my barkada's favorite Banana Shake from Behrouz (a bit) 128514, so it's within my flavor wheel, so to speak.

Being flexible with sweetness level, I went with 30%. In hindsight, I should have gone with 50% coz I found the 30% sweetness lacking. So if you have a sweet tooth, go for 70 or even full sweetness. The staff weren't that sharp in recommending a sweetness level when I asked. He said go for 100% without asking my preference.

The quality of the banana milk tea taste is evident, and I liked it very much. Just right level of banana blended with the milk tea base. Not too overpoweringly cloying and generally satisfying. Ordered pearl as my choice of mixer instead of their recommended pudding. I think the pudding would have worked better, but like I said, I had just revived my interest, having downed their Chatime Milk Tea a day earlier (which was pretty great), so I went with my usual pearls. Their pearls are well shaped, chewy in a good way, but it's not my preferred sweet pearl. Theirs is more neutral tasting like a Gong Cha.

With a great variety of milk teas, fruits teas, fruit juices and smoothies, Chatime offers fantastic flavors from which to choose. They have good food, I've heard, to boot in the bigger branches, though I haven't tried it yet. Seems there are chicken chops and pepper salt chicken. That's branching out, guys. Like Serenitea's sides of food or the full Japanese menu of Bubble Tea. 128522

Price is good, nothing too expensive and same price as the other milk tea places.

For how many times now, hubs and I would always just grab our drink from CT and leave. Sometimes, we'd stay a bit longer (like 5 minutes) hahaha! People having coffee from the coffee shops stay longer than people having Milk Tea. Napansin ko lang!?!

Hindi naman siguro dahil sa free wifi. Because here in their Aura branch they have free wifi. Some coffee shops wala nga eh, pero dahil sa space nga ata, it's more of nakakahiyang mag stay ng matagal and since ang bilis din maubos ng drink especially kami ni hubs pag nauuhaw, parang water ang Milk Tea! 128539 Lol!

We tried staying for a while, mga 15 minutes!?! Lol!
Nag wifi lang sandali and chat a little. They have only three tables there so we had to leave din agad for the next customers na dumadating. The table behind us na nasa dulo, seemed like they've been there for hours.128513

For someone who wants coffee and milk tea you can order Coffee Milk Tea with coffee jelly from Chatime. It's like enjoying two great drinks in one seating. I particularly like their coffee jelly, in my opinion, it is with the same quality as the one in Starbucks. Only P110 for large and add P20 for the coffee jelly. Yummy!

Im sorry if it's not the actual tea! Haha! This was taken during our stay at chatime! I do recommend to try their new flavor chocolate strawberry or strawberry chocolate(not sure which one is first)! Whenever i try new tea shops, i always opted wintermelon only cause i am scared others will taste awful! Gladly this new combi didn't fail me. It's a must try! And the place was cozy :)

P.S
During our stay there with all our gadgets out, we saw an unusual kuya sitting beside us. We glanced and he smiled awkwardly. When my friend and I noticed that he went to the cashier and asked for calling card, which was very unusual. We then kept our ipad and tablet for he may have some agendas. We then saw him lurking around clapping his hands loudly, i don't know what's up with him but we were really nervous that time. Guess no place is safe though it was SM Aura. :(

Papa asked me last week if it's okay if he's gonna date me, I said yes, but I want a shopping date. 128518 Pumayag siya!! And there... Awhile ago, we went to SM Aura and broke his credit card. Lol 128514128514

He got tired kasi wherever I go, he followed me. I told him he could stay at a coffeeshop and then I'll just get back to him after shopping, he said it's alright, it's a shopping date (awwww sweet dad 9786️). Okay, after 4 hours of walking and buying stuff, he said "Anak, gusto ko umupo muna. Mag-Chatime tayo". We went to Chatime and he asked me what I want. Wala akong gana that time so sabi ko water lang. But he ordered two taro pudding milk tea... 128528 Taro. No. Why taro, why... Ayoko nung una, pero it's good daw. Then I took a sip... ANG SARAP PALA! 12852510084️ Hehehe. See? Even at milktea flavors, Papa knows best pa din. Hihi.

Anyway... Super limited tables. Yun lang. Bigger space and more tables, please? 9786️ Super sikip.

Out of all the tea places in Manila, Chatime used to be my least favorite.

But since we're in Aura walking aimlessly, and freezing (they blasted the airconditioning system, I think) - I chose to get a hot cup of milk tea and perhaps give it another try.

I was narrowing down the choices to those with the hot variant. For P80, their new flavor - Honey Oolong Milk Tea was delicious!

Not too sweet, and not too strong for its tea taste, I liked it. 128077 For P80 worth its size, pretty cheap already for a big mug of hot stuff. 128514

When me and my friends craves for something to drink, we search for a happy lemon shop in bgc. Suddenly the store was closed. We decided to go to SM aura since it is near by BGC. We go to Chatime. The photo shows Wintermelon mousse one of my all time favorite. chocolate mousse is also one of my favs but i suggest you to lessen the sugar level. I also tried the Chocolate strawberry. You'll love the chocolate and strawberry taste that compliment with each other.

BANANA MILKTEA. 128076
All my friends didn't like it tho. :( it was just okay "daw". Haha.

Well, if you'll be trying it out. Order:
Banana MilkTea, 0% or 35%

Cause the banana flavor makes it sweet already so no need to add sugar. But it would still be up to you. 128077

I also added coconut jelly so it made it sweeter. Hihi. -sweet tooth right here! 128514128514128514

Chatting was just ok for me. I've tried their Wintermelon tea and it was good - not amazing, but good. For some reason I find Serenitea's tea more flavorful. With or without the pearls. I've seen that they have a Milo drink that I can get with pearls - maybe if I try that, I might like Chatime a little more. I mean, who doesn't like Milo?? 128522

Buy 1 get 1 2-4 pm until the July 7th!128523 Saw it coming from the escalator, paid 85 pesos for my son's Chocolate Mousse and got a free Grass Jelly Milk Tea!

5 free toppings next week? Won't your glass be full of add-ons instead of the drink?

Yet again, another super late review. Sowree.

I don't know what that drink is anymore because that was a few weeks ago pa. Haha. Basta strawberry something.

Anyway, I gave it 5 stars because this week SM Aura's Chatime branch had a free upsize so super sulit kasi free... Hahaha then next week(July 1-7) they'll have the buy 1 get 1 free. Hehe really excited for that promo. Then the week after that they'll give 5 free toppings on your drink. I've been drinking the Taro milk tea for the past week that I don't think I'll get any more of those next week.... So next week maybe I'll get the choco mousse. Hehe. 128540

I'm so craving for Mango Green tea but unfortunately this drink is not available because theres no more green tea again. This is the second time that they didn't produce green tea before the closing hours huhu. 128532

So I just ordered my other option..
🔸Wintermelon Dew
less ice and normal sugar level, I always remember the Tasty dumplings' popular drink because of the same taste but different price and volume.. Php 50 at Tasty Dumpling and Php 70 for regular size.
Overall, it's also a refreshing drink just like Mango Green Tea. 128516

🔹Chocolate Mousse
Less ice and 70% sugar.
This is for my baby sister, mostly kids love chocolate drink, maybe that's why this is one of the best selling drink of Chatime.
🔸Pepper Chicken Chops (Php 75)
Yummy! Eat it while its warm 128523127860

Verdict:
Place - 5
Environment - 5
Service - 4
Taste - 5
Price - 5
