Why Does 3oz of Masala Chai Blend Cost $25?

That is a great question! And we’d love to tell you why.

It’s Personal. I started CHAI.COM to share authentic masala chai my family has enjoyed for generations.  We are proud to share that tradition and will never compromise the ingredients we use.  This is the chai we drink every day in our home, and we will only offer you what we serve at our own kitchen table.

Now let’s talk about the cost.

What is a Chaiwallah or Chaiwalli?

“Garam Chai! Garam Chai!”

If you’ve ever stepped onto the streets of India, you’ve heard this ubiquitous chant from the local Chaiwallah, serving up fresh, hot chai that he’s been brewing all day at his street kiosk.  “Chai” is “spiced black tea with milk” and “Wallah” means “seller or maker”, so a Chaiwallah is just that, a maker and seller of masala Chai.  And a Chaiwalli is a female chai maker/seller.

What Fills Your Cup?

What Fills Your Cup?

It happens every year, spring literally gets sprung upon us.  Maybe it’s being buried under cold temperatures, long hours at work and the hustle after the holidays that keep us in the dark. And then, voila! Spring starts peeking out from under the clouds and things start to look a bit more cheery.  It’s the perfect time to reset, recharge and reaffirm what fuels us, what brings us joy and what fills our cup.   Spring cleaning can mean opening our doors and windows; it can also mean doing a little mental, emotional and physical spring cleaning to help us be healthy, feel good and be good. Experts have lots of great ideas on how we can reset and charge ahead.  We’ve compiled a few ideas here to kick start your spring cleanse.
