Folklore dates the origin of chai back to between 5000 - 9000 years ago. Members of an ancient Indian royal court mixed the beverage for its healing Ayurvedic properties. Chai remains a source of well-being for body and soul. The blend for our Rooibos Chai and Masala Chai are inspired by an ancient Indian recipe featuring hand-blended and freshly ground spices. Firepot Rooibos Chai is brewed with South Africa’s mineral and nutrient-rich herb making our chai recipe caffeine-free. Our Chocolate Chai is blended with organic cocoa nibs to give it some extra sweetness. We also transformed our signature blend of masala chai and rooibos chai into a concentrate. Popular for its convenience, chai concentrate allows you to easily enjoy the sweet, savory and warm spice of chai at home.
There just isn’t anything like a steaming cup of warm chai on a cool Autumn day.

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can easily personalize your chai latte by experimenting with different types of milk. Almond milk, cashew milk, and oat milk each add a unique and creamy flavor profile to the drink.

Chai is a warm and welcoming indulgence, offering a few stolen moments of comfort and peace in the midst of what is often a changing and tumultuous world. So much so that chai isn't just for tea anymore. Chai’s popularity has increased over the years so that the taste is favored for cooking and baking. Some of our favorites include chai fried chicken, vanilla chai bread and the chai bourbon mule. See our Chai Recipe Guide for these recipes and more!
