Our Story

Sarah, our owner and brewmistress, started Chico Chai in 2004, selling chai at the local farmers' market and to a few local cafes. Before long, demand grew for her fresh, spiced chai and it's now served at the fine coffeehouses all over Northern California. Despite its popularity, our chai is still brewed fresh from scratch in small batches, with great attention paid to detail and quality.
