We are Tuk Tuk Chai, the bold new drink that dares to be different. With a taste for adventure and a passion for cultural fusion, we’re breaking into the tea game in style with our spicy take on your everyday cuppa.
Chai. It's tea, but not as you know it.
I came up with the idea to create a ready-brewed chai after my wife Alex developed a real obsession with the home-made chai she drinks during our yearly trips to Kottayam, my hometown in Kerala, South India. She fell in love with the rich, complex, spicy flavour a perfect cup of chai should offer. She has ever since been searching for an authentic cup of chai this side of Kottayam but has never had her cravings satisfied. I therefore realised that we’d have to do it ourselves!
Upon returning from one of our trips to Kerala in January 2015, we started brewing chai after chai to come up with the most authentic recipe for our ready-brewed chai. And so, Tuk Tuk Chai was born! Tuk Tuk Chai combines the perfect infusion of black tea, creamy milk, optional spices with just a hint of sugar.
What’s more? You can chai it your way: hot or cold it’s just as tasty. Tea lovers of Britain, prepare to chai.
