Chatime, the number one lifestyle tea provider in Malaysia, along with Cadbury, the world renowned chocolate brand, have collaborated to launch a special range of Chatime Choco-LatTea series in Malaysia, creating a one-of-a-kind flavour for both brands.
Chatime Malaysia leveraged on its research and development arm to concoct the three new variants of the Chatime’s Choco-latTea series, namely the Strawberry Choco, Earl Grey Choco and Caramel Choco.
Bryan Loo, Managing Director of Chatime Malaysia, said, “This collaboration meets our objectives to launch five new product series a year and the Choco-latTea series marks the first of them in 2014, which will localise our brand and further strengthen our positioning as a household name in Malaysia.”
According to Bryan, the marriage of tea and chocolate makes it a unique combination, for instance, the Earl Grey Choco variant combines a tea blend which has a distinctive smoky flavour and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit with Cadbury’s milk chocolate that will titillate the tastebuds.
Chatime Malaysia also expects to build and expand its consumer base through its partnership with Cadbury, whose chocolates has been enjoyed by one in three Malaysian households for over 40 years. Bryan added that the collaboration will also open up opportunities with other household brands.
