Founder Brook Eddy traveled to India in 2002 to study a social justice movement based on Brook and her kids in IndiaBhakti (or devotion through social action). Along the way, she fell in love with the aroma and flavor of the spicy masala chai ubiquitous to northern India. Upon her return to the U.S., Brook was unable to find the spicy fresh chai that she had enjoyed during her travels so she began brewing her own at home. Standing over the pot of steaming chai on her stove and inhaling the layers of fragrant spices, Brook was suddenly swept back into the chaos, colors and vibrancy of India.

When her homemade brew gained attention (and even addiction) from friends and neighbors, she decided to take the principles of Bhakti that she had learned in India and build a company on this ideal. This single mother of twins took a deep breath, quit her full time job, and dove into the process of bringing consumers a microbrewed chai that was steeped in social and environmental change.

    Fair Trade: Every Purchase Matters
    Impoverished farmers and workers often need their children to work in order to make enough to support the whole family. Buying Fair Trade Certified products helps provide farming families with the income and stability they need to keep their children in school, instead of in the fields. Thanks for giving the gift of education when you buy Bhakti Chai!

    Love from Olivia....blogger, writer for LA Yoga and a Bhakti Chai Ambassador! "While at Bhaktifest in Madison, Wisconsin I had to stop by for a hug from some of my favorite vendors that have since become festival friends.  Bhakti Chai is a company that not only has an amazing product that is fair trade, organic and delicious, but also supports global sustainability incorporating conscious practices into business.  I am thrilled to partner up with such an integral company with a product I love."
