One Stripe Chai Co

One Stripe Chai Co

 

One Stripe Chai is a small batch chai-maker based in Portland, OR. We brew bold, high quality, tradition-inspired chai concentrates for foodservice, home, and on-the-go use. Our organic black tea comes directly from a family-owned partner farm in Assam, India and is the basis of our beautiful chai.
About The Owner:

Farah Jesani, Chief Chai Officer

I have to start by explaining my relationship with chai. I'm Indian so drinking chai is basically in my blood. I have memories with chai that most people in the US have with coffee. That experience of being young and watching all the "adults" drinking this hot beverage religiously, anxiously waiting until I was "old enough" to have a mug of my own were some of my first. I still remember getting my first cup in a small light amber mug with a matching saucer which I used to cool the chai down and slurp up. At mosque, it was a ritual to meet by the chai in the back courtyard where white Styrofoam cups flooded the scene. We dunked our Ritz crackers in the beverage as we caught up on school, life, and who-was-dating-who. In college I abandoned my chai and Ritz ritual for a new libation- coffee. Coffee was the new partner in crime through all-night study sessions and long walks across campus in the winter.
Soon enough after college I was reacquainted with chai, but I still avoided ordering chai lattes at coffee shops because I always found them to be too sweet or incredibly bland. Fast forward about 5 years, and I found myself in Portland launching a chai company to bring this South Asian beverage back to its roots - starting with craft coffee shops. The idea of One Stripe Chai Co. fell into my lap randomly and serendipitously, the way most great things tend to fall into laps.
