ONE STRIP CHAI
Chai Me At Home Blend
What is it? The Chai Me At Home blend is masala chai that’s typically brewed in South Asian homes locally and abroad. Made with strong black tea blended with cardamom, ginger, and black pepper.
Notes from the Curator: Chai is a personal drink and can be different from home to home and person to person! Some people boil their water first and then add milk. Some people brew for a few minutes, while some will simmer for 10 minutes or longer! Feel free to stray and find what’s best for you!
Let’s Get Nerdy: Chai Me At Home black tea is directly-sourced from a small organic and biodynamic farm in Assam, India.
- About the Brand
Founded by Farah Jesani, Chief Chai Office of One Strip Chai. In Farah’s own words “I have to start by explaining my relationship with chai. I'm Indian so drinking chai is basically in my blood. I have memories with chai that most people in the US have with coffee. I still remember getting my first cup in a small light amber mug with a matching saucer which I used to cool the chai down and slurp up. Soon enough after college I was reacquainted with chai, but I still avoided ordering chai lattes at coffee shops because I always found them to be too sweet or incredibly bland. Fast forward about 5 years, and I found myself in Portland launching a chai company to bring this South Asian beverage back to its roots - starting with craft coffee shops. The idea of One Stripe Chai Co. fell into my lap randomly and serendipitously, the way most great things tend to fall into laps."
