Coffee, smoothies, and soda pop have absolutely nothing on bubble tea. Refreshing, flavourful, and filled with magical tapioca balls, bubble, you can truly never go wrong with a big ol' bubble tea. Not exactly easy to find outside of Chinatown, the bubble tea scene in Montreal isn't the largest. Bubble tea addicts will be pleased to hear that a new shop in town to fix their cravings, Chatime, will be giving out free bubble tea on October 30th from 5-7pm, so set the date.

Known as the "Starbucks of bubble tea," Chatime is a world renowned bubble tea vendor that has just arrived in Montreal, bringing along tons of bubble tea-tastic beverages and snacks. Chatime takes bubble tea to the next level, offering over 30 different basic tea beverages, cold and hot coffees, and insane creations like Oreo Smooteas, Choco-LaTeas, Coffee-Tea Cham Fusions, and a bunch of others, all with a "tea" pun thrown in.

All of Montreal will be able to try the bubble tea that's made Chatime a global legend entirely for free, for one day. Here's the basic breakdown:

  • Who: Chatime
  • Where: 52 Rue de la Gauchetière Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Z 1C1 (Chinatown- map)
  • When: Thursday, October 30th from 5-7pm
  • What: Your very own cup of bubble tea and tapioca balls
  • Why: Because nothing beats free, especially bubble tea

While only one Chatime location is offering free bubble teas in Montreal on the 30th, two different Chatime stores are actually open. The other is on Saint- Catherine street so keep that in mind next time you're in the area and craving some bubble tea, which I'm sure is often.

Chatime's free bubble tea day in Montreal will be on October 30th from 5-7pm at their China Town location, learn more about Chatime and their products by heading to the official website here.
