Origin, India

Chai is an integral part of life in India and simply translates to 'Tea' in Hindi. Calling it 'Chai tea' is considered redundant. Chaiwallahs (tea vendors) are present at street corners brewing basic black tea with spices especially during early morning.

500 Mile Chai

The tale of '500 Mile Chai' originates from the many late night truck drivers stopping at small Chai stands (Dhabas) on the highway and asking for really strong, sweet Chai to help them drive long distances (in a humorous tone - 'for another 500 miles').

Choice of the Leaf

The grade of tea commonly used for Chai is known as 'Cut, Tear and Curl (CTC)', representing a heavily rolled leaf pellet with very low moisture content. It is ideal for boiling, which is the traditional way to make Chai.

Organic Spices

We hand blend the organic black tea with organic spices.

Chai Utensils

Chaiwallahs in India offer chai in simple kettles and small tapered glasses or chai cups called 'Kasoras', which are made of low fired clay.
