What’s it all about?

Chai has been around for over 5000 years and on average, people in India drink anywhere between 4-10 cups of chai a day. It has its own language and comes in different shapes and forms. It can be spicy, warming, cooling, soothing or just exceptionally incredible. The recipe and style of making chai varies across different Indian regions. In this workshop we’ll learn the language of chai.

What will we cover?

In this workshop we’ll be drinking chai over some common chai questions, such as:

  • Where does chai come from?
  • What is authentic chai?
  • What’s the difference between chai, chai tea, chai latte, chai tea latte?
  • How do I brew chai?
  • What is Ayurveda?
  • What do all the spices mean?
  • Why is chai so damn good?

You’ll also get your very own Chai Walli chai mix so you can show off your newly learnt chai making skills!
