My coworker Helen and I both really like bubble tea and have gone out for bubble tea a couple times now, and this week she brought me in a whole bunch of different “instant bubble tea” mixes to try out from Chatime – these are powders or teabags that are commercially available here in Montreal (usually in Chinese markets I think) that you can use to DIY a bubble tea at home, minus the tapioca pearls…

I’ll be honest, I’ve been HIGHLY skeptical about the quality of all of them – and in general I don’t seem to be a big fan of the Chatime franchise as a whole anyway. Y’all know my policy though: I’ll try anything at least once! So that’s what I’m doing – with as open a mind as I can muster.

This was definitely gross tasting though – it’s an instant powder; a pretty darn sweet smelling one with lots of visible sugar in the mix. Whisked up in hot water it smells kind of fishy and sour!? I’m pretty sure the original flavour is just a sweet black tea with milk – and taste wise that seems to be what I’m getting; a really sugary and vaguely creamy black tea taste, though a little weak. Maybe weak is good because I’m not tasting the same fishy aroma that’s coming off the mug.

Not the worst thing I’ve had, but far from ideal…
