How It All Began...

Real Chai - because you won't find it at your local coffee shop

It all started with a dream. No, really, that’s not even a cliche. I literally had a dream about selling chai back in February 2021. When I woke up, I was completely obsessed with the idea for weeks, and now we’re here. As it turns out, life moves pretty fast when you’re sharing a generational recipe with the entire world. Who would’ve thought, eh?

Hi, I'm Nikita, the founder of Naturally Chai

With an upbringing full of Chai-scented mornings thanks to my Indian heritage, recreating my mum’s cooking gives me the comforts of home. No matter where I am in the world, it’s like having a little piece of India with me.

After years of sharing my family recipe with friends — and them struggling to recreate the same flavour as mine — an idea began to brew (pun intended), leading me to launch a business where I could share the delights of real Chai while also supporting causes that I care about.

I want to share the emotion of being home... those feelings of tenderness and warmth you get from mum's cooking.

My family recipe has traveled down multiple generations in India, over to the UK where I grew up, and now to the United States to reach you. Spicy ginger, cinnamon, and pepper form a harmonic melange with soothing nutmeg, cardamom, and ganthoda powder. This masala spice mix fuses with black tea imported from India, retaining every complex flavor note, emulating the colorful energy of India. And as an added bonus, Chai is rich in antioxidants and laden with numerous health benefits such as helping boost heart health, aiding digestion, soothing headaches and more!
 
With less caffeine than coffee, you’ll feel energized without any of the jitters. It’s a total win-win. I even managed to convert my husband from a coffee drinker to a Chai drinker (quite an accomplishment, gotta say). Yup, that’s the enticing power of real Chai, which is hard to find outside of India — sorry, Starbucks.
 
From my family to yours, I hope you’ll cherish the full experience of authentic Indian tea just as much as I do.
