We're California Chai, a small-batch, craft-brewed chai manufacturer located in beautiful San Luis Obispo. We began our story 8 years ago when our company's founder went to India and learned to brew authentic Indian chai from the chaiwala's of northern India. They taught him that brewing good chai is all in the wrist, and we still think this is true! We start every chai batch with our proprietary mix of 10 spices and herbs, hand steep it, and then blend it with highest quality masala tea and our secret simple syrup formula. The result is an authentic chai with the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

California Chai was formerly known as SLO Chai.

Why is California Chai so good?
We spent years fine tuning our recipe for California Chai and spent countless hours in the chai lab working on finding ways to make it taste great. Our chai is made with our proprietary blend of 10 spices and herbs, masala tea, and our secret simple sugar.
Can I serve California Chai in my cafe?
Sure! We are currently working on building a large network of distributors to get California Chai into as many cafe's as possible.We may already have a distributor in your area already. The best bet would be to call us. We'd love to chat! 888.543.0183
Can my company be a distributor?
Maybe! We work with one distributor per area and grant exclusivity to that distributor as long as they are doing a good job and selling lots of chai. If California Chai is not in your area then we would love to hear from you. Just give us a call! 888.543.0183
How long does California Chai last?
California Chai will live on the shelf for about 12 months, and will last about 3-4 weeks after opening in the refrigerator. Be sure to refrigerate after opening.

Yes. One of the main ingredients in any chai is masala tea, a black tea from India. This tea, like all black teas, is caffeinated.

Not yet. We'll be adding decaf chai along with other California Chai products soon.
