The Queen's Story
Queen of Chai is a female-owned start-up business that was launched at the end of August 2019.
It was born many years ago, playfully referred to as “Chaiwala”. It began amongst a group of college friends spending hours together always with a pot of freshly brewed masala tea, also known as CHAI, the Indian/ Hindi word.
Years later, in conversation and over a pot of brewed chai, shared amongst husband and wife (a team), the realisation arose that there is a gap in the market and that “Chaiwala” can become a business. Chaiwala then transformed into Queen of Chai. The name came to the owner, Hajirah Dawray Cassiem in a dream.
Queen of Chai is an authentic Oriental brand. All our products have an oriental flair. We sell black, lemongrass and rooibos loose leaf teas made with whole spices, and organic lattes like Golden and Masala Chai latte.
For those tea enthusiasts, exciting news is that we have introduced a range of services including tea parties, create your own tea experience and brewing chai at your private function or corporate event. These services are perfect for bridal showers or wedding receptions.
Queen of Chai only uses whole pure spices that we grind down ourselves. We support clean living and try to source the base of our products straight from the farm.
