Make It At Home: Firepot Chai - Loose Leaf

Eighteen years ago, we started blending and grinding our unique masala (spice blend) recipe into a sweet, potent, and aromatic mixture that has fueled the growth of Firepot ever since!

Our original product line was a series of three types of tea blended with this proprietary recipe: 

  1. Original Masala Chai:  Firepot Masala blended with black teaShop-firepot-loose-leaf-chai-tins
  2. Rooibos Chai: Firepot Masala blended with rooibos, the caffeine-free evergreen shrub from South Africa that is said to “preserve the youth and gladden the heart!” 
  3. Chocolate Chai: Firepot Masala blended with cacao nibs from our friends at Dagoba Chocolate (back when they were a small company run out of Telluride, Colorado!)


Chai lovers and cafes from Sweden to Alaska would buy our blend online and rave --many saying that it reminded them of what they had when they were traveling in India. Almost overnight, we had addicts, regulars, and a community of people bonding over travels, a love of chai, yoga, and sustainability!

All of these years later, we are still making this chai to the exact same recipe, sharing the benefits to the body and soul of Firepot Chai with our devotees!



Whichever blend you choose, Original, Rooibos or Chocolate, the recipe is the same:

  1. Boil the freshly ground spices and tea in water
  2. Add sugar, or not
  3. Add milk, or not
  4. Stir, strain, and enjoy!

It is that simple! Our video walks you through the process, step-by-step so that you can comfortably do it yourself at home:


This is also our most versatile and economical chai. A little goes a long way and you can choose any sweetener you like or leave it sugar-free. It is entirely up to you!

We like to think that the recipe for Firepot Chai was sent to us,  a gift from Above, making us the vehicle through which the healing magic of this authentic and organic chai could be shared with people across the world seeking, vibrant health, expansive adventure, and the simple, beautiful pleasures of life!
