Our Chai

All Chai Walli blends are formulated by our chai queen, Uppma Virdi, who has drawn from her personal stories and rich knowledge about spices and Ayurveda. We take pride in educating our community about the art of chai and providing immersive experiences for the senses.

Our black teas are directly sourced from a small batch organic and fair trade tea gardens in the Assam Valley of India. We are driven to ensure all our suppliers are transparent to align with our ethical values. We take great pride in sharing with you the highest grade of single origin Indian teas.

Our signature chai is the most authentic chai on the market. It is made using only whole spices that are hand blended using traditional Indian practices; this means no liquids, no powders, no preservatives - just natural chai goodness. 


Ayurveda

It is one of the most ancient forms of holistic well-being which is still widely practiced in India today.

Uppma balances herbs & spices with the knowledge passed to her from her Grandfather, Dr Pritam Virdi - an Ayurvedic doctor. From him she learnt a deep understanding of Indian spices and their Ayurvedic properties. Chai Walli's conception pays tribute to Dr Pritam's legacy. There is a large gap in the market for traditional high quality Indian teas, so we decided to share Uppma's family secrets with you. You can check out our range of gorgeous Ayurvedic herbal tea blends here.
