I was in Vancouver recently and my cousin suggested that we try this great bubble tea place on Robson Street. Now I've had bubble teas before and not been crazy about them because they sort of tasted chalky or powdery, and either too sweet or not sweet enough. My cuz said that this place, called Chatime, uses real tea and fresh ingredients, versus the powdered junk I had been drinking in Alberta, plus, you can tell them how much sugar you want in it! You can totally control the amount of ice and sugar that goes into your freshly made drink. She said the wait time can be a little long for your bubble tea to be made, but that it is totally worth it. So I went with her, and WOW, was I ever blown away by the taste! Yes, the wait time is long because it's a tiny place and the lineup was out the door, and after I ordered my Passionfruit QQ (QQ means it includes both tapioca pearls/bubbles and coconut jelly) I waited for about 5 minutes for it to be made, but, as my cousin had promised...it's worth the wait! I had asked for less ice and normal sugar, and it was the best bubble tea I had ever had! So fresh tasting and refreshing! My cousin's Milk Tea QQ was amazing too. She said that she has been trying every single bubble tea they have and she loves them all. Lucky girl, she lives within walking distance of this place so she can (and she often does) have one bubble tea a day! I highly recommend this place, if you can stand the wait!!! The address is 1274 Robson St, Vancouver, BC.
