In 1991 our founder headed for the Himalayas in search of something to fill her cup, metaphorically speaking. While she was there, her cup was filled—we’re talking literally this time—with a rich, creamy, spiced tea. With chai. She came home and dedicated three years to perfecting her Western interpretation of this delectable drink and dubbed it Oregon Chai. Today we remain true to our founder’s Oregonian roots and heritage of introducing authentic chai to America.
