The Fresh Chai Co uses only 100% certified organic ingredients and Fairtrade. Passionate about making the best possible chai, their method takes time and care. Whole spices are stone milled, select spices are ground by mortar and pestle and the raw honey is infused with whole vanilla for weeks. It’s very likely their chai is lovingly handled more than any other chai in the world to produce something with lively flavour and feeling.

Handcrafted on the Sunshine Coast.

Masala Blend Chai is a traditional seven spiced chai that is warm, rich and familiar but with a Fresh Chai lift. FRESHLY stone crushed whole spices are blended to perfection with full bodied Assam long leaf black tea. The chai is then soaked in local raw honey to make the most delicious chai imaginable.

Golden Turmeric Blend Chai is made with a healthy dose of the finest turmeric with antioxidant rich rooibos tea balanced with a delicious blend of freshly crushed chai spices and whole vanilla. The chai is then soaked in local raw honey to meld the flavours and preserve the freshness.

Chocolate Blend Chai is a rich vanilla bean and cardamom driven chai with deep chocolate flavours behind it. Stone crushed whole spices are blended to perfection with rich, malty Assam long leaf black tea, raw cacao and vanilla beans. The chai is then soaked in local raw honey to make the most delicious chai imaginable.
