About us

Queen of Chai was born many years ago going by a playful name of “Chaiwala”. It began amongst a group of college friends spending hours together always with a pot of freshly brewed masala tea aka CHAI, the Indian word. Years later, in conversation and over a pot of brewed chai, shared amongst husband and wife, the realisation arose that there is a gap in the market and that “Chaiwala” can actually become a business. Chaiwala then transformed into Queen of Chai. The name came to the founder in a dream.

We sell Black, Lemongrass, Honeybush, Green and Rooibos loose tea leaves and compostable reusable tea bags made with whole spices. Our latte range consists of Golden Milk and Masala Chai, which is made from pure spices.

As a husband and wife team, with the wife bringing the teatastic to the business while the husband brings his skills, knowledge and taste buds of nuts and dried fruit.

Founder & Brewer

I love everything about collecting, creating, and sampling, new variants of teas and lattes. I just had to share my passion with the world.

I cannot wait to expand my new product range. Watch this space!
