Our Chai

We blend and brew Chico Chai from scratch, by hand, in small batches. Our chai concentrate is brewed fresh, complex with spices and has a nice balance of spicy and sweet. Our loose leaf chai is fully customizable for the perfect cup of chai in your own kitchen. We're committed to making and brewing chai with honor and respect and to its South Asian origins and traditions, which means we're constantly researching and learning as a part of our process.
