What are the new Chatime KitKat flavours?

In collaboration with KitKat, Chatime has released two new bubble tea flavours: Thai Milk Tea Crunch with KitKat and Roasted Milk Tea Crunch with KitKat and Pudding. The Thai Milk Tea Crunch features their classic Thai Milk Tea, a strongly brewed black tea with aromatic spices, condensed milk and evaporated milk, and real KitKat creamy milk chocolate and wafers. The Roasted Milk Tea Crunch with KitKat and Pudding consists of their Japanese roasted milk tea (one of their most popular drinks) mixed together with egg pudding and real KitKat creamy milk chocolate and wafers.

Chatime Roasted Milk Tea Crunch with KitKat and Pudding Review

If you’re a fan of texture, this bubble tea really delivers. The creamy roasted milk tea is contrasted with the soft, custardy texture of the egg pudding and the light chocolatey crunch of the KitKat for something pretty special. While this might not be our everyday boba order because it feels more like a dessert than a drink, it is certainly off-the-charts delicious. The flavours work really well together, and the KitKat pieces felt like a nice surprise every time.

Chatime Thai Milk Tea Crunch with KitKat Review

Unlike a regular bubble tea where you get some boba with every sip, the light crunch of KitKat only comes every so often in this drink, and honestly, we somewhat missed the boba. Next time, we might consider customizing it by adding boba pearls to up the texture factor. That said, the light swirls of chocolate pair really nicely with the strong black tea and creamy condensed and evaporated milks. This drink is also slightly lighter than the other KitKat drink option, so if you’re curious to try the KitKat drink series without the heaviness, this is a solid option.

Do the new Chatime KitKat Bubble Teas have boba pearls?

The new Chatime KitKat Bubble Teas do not have boba pearls ⁠— the KitKat pieces are swapped in to provide a light crunch instead of the signature chew of boba.
