Founded in Taiwan in 2003, Chatime is an international franchise with over 1000 stores worldwide serving more than 400,000 customers every day. The company launched in Australia in 2009 and has quickly grown to over 60 outlets across Australia.

Our commitment

Combining 30 years of tea production and a team of professional tea developers and testers, the company employs state-of-the-art technology and uses the highest quality ingredients to deliver a great tea tasting experience.

Chatime’s successful franchise chain is down to well-developed training programs, an exceptional retail audit system, cutting edge product innovation, and a specialised management and research team that support the Chatime family of franchisees every step of the way.

Chatime is committed to delivering consistently high quality beverages with outstanding customer service.


Cha time was founded in 2003 with the goal of introducing the world to the flavour and fun of modern Taiwanese tea.
We have since grown to over 1,000 stores worldwide (over 60 in Australia since 2009) and our team serve more than 400,000 customers per day. We take enormous pride in making innovative, refreshing teas that surprise and delight even the most adventurous individuals.
With more than 30 years of experience within the industry, we lead the way in providing authentic Taiwanese fresh tea, giving customers a welcome alternative to the glut of artificial, sugary and unhealthy options in the marketplace.
The journey starts with sourcing the highest-quality ingredients, using unique methods of infusing and blending tea leaves, freshly brewing teas in our stores and supporting local Australian farmers through our use of real dairy products. It’s why nothing is more invigorating than a freshly brewed tea from Cha time.
If you’re passionate about joining a brand that serves more than 280,000 litres of fresh tea per day, then Cha time is here to help you begin an exciting new journey.
