Chatime opened its first Australian store in 2009 and pretty quickly became a bubble tea phenomenon.

It now has over 70 stores and is a staple treat yo' self drink for many boba-lovers.

Thanks to their newest product, now you don’t even have to leave your house to enjoy your bubble tea.

Chatime drops new Woolies range

Chatime has come to your local Woolworths supermarket.

In a mysterious, hard-to-get (very cool) fashion, the Chatime drop was barely advertised and kind of just showed up on our shelves. It’s not even currently advertised on the Chatime Aussie website.


Instead, our good Gen Z informants have helped spread the word by showcasing the products on TikTok.

TikTok user @ntheresheeats posted a video yesterday about the new range and has so far racked up over 60 thousand likes and been shared 9 thousand times. The enthusiasm in the comments is clear.

“OMFG’, ‘we need!!’, ‘NO FRICKEN WAY’, ‘Let’s buy!, ‘RUN TO THE STORE’ are all comments under this video.

Another TikTok user, @sta.nicolaidis, posted a taste test of the new kits, trying the Peach and Mango flavours. She showed the super-easy 3-step assembly of the drinks - the iced tea packet, the pearls, ice and water and captioned that they were ‘pretty good’. Her video has been liked over 17 thousand times and has almost 2 thousand shares.

The official @chatimeau TikTok commented on her video, saying, ‘Thanks for sharing Anastasia and happy sipping!! We hope you find them as TEA-licious as we do’.

The other comments on her video were equally as excited. “I want one so bad”, one user said.

"I'm so excited for these," another person said.

These products are obviously flying off the shelves, so they’re currently showing as out of stock on the Woolies website. However, we’ve heard they’re still available in certain stores, so it’s worth checking out your local supermarket. Our recommendation: run, don’t walk.
