The History

Originally a thriving tea house in St.Ives, Chai Kai Tea is the result of two brothers love for quality crafted loose leaf teas.

We are keen to share the exotic flavours and colourful culture of our native South Asia.  Therefore, we went on a mission to ethically source the finest teas and ingredients around the world.  The result is a range of exceptional loose leaf teas and speciality infusions to delight the senses.

Loose Leaf Teas

Each one of our high quality loose leaf teas are hand picked and hand blended to perfection.  There are currently 16 loose leaf tea blends of exceptional quality that you can buy online.

The Team

The Chai Kai Tea Co is very much a family run business lead by both brothers.  And like all families, we have our regular squabbles but nothing a nice hot cuppa brew can’t solve.

So, we have the Head Honchos (Big brother + Little brother).   Backed by a small, friendly, close knit family team and in the most critical role, we have Baby Chai Kai who acts as Chief Morale Officer.

Giving back

And finally, we are so proud to have partnered with MakeLunch, a charity that tackles child poverty in the UK, our official charity partner for 2017.  They have built a network of churches and community groups who work together to fill the holiday hunger gap. Find out more at

In order to support MakeLunch, for every tea sold, we will make a donation to MakeLunch.
