Where Home Meets Home.
We’re always looking for a connection to home. For many immigrants, it’s about bringing a little part of their culture to America and holding on to these traditions and customs while assimilating. For first generation Americans, it’s about defining what home is and performing the awkward straddle between two cultures.
We make masala chai the way our parents had it back on the streets of Kolkata. This means paying careful attention to traditions while highlighting local ingredients. We use tea from legacy estates in India, milk from local farmers and grind all our spice blends in-house.
A good cup of chai is the start of a conversation. Chai can start relationships, novels and even revolutions. We hope you enjoy a cup of Kolkata Chai and see where it takes you.
