I wanted to share a new initiative we’ve developed at Kolkata Chai Co. Welcome to our Virtual Chai Class.
We’ve all seen a “chai latte” on a menu before, but what is real chai and how did it help shape the world we live in today?
In a 45min virtual session, we’ll cover the origins of chai, how the tea trade created empires and how to make the perfect cup at home. We’ll share the process that is used by chaiwallahs on the streets of India and make you an expert in no time!
CHAI MAKING CLASS DETAILS
The classes start at $50/person and are perfect for DE&I initiatives, team building activities, virtual happy hours and more. Submit your name and email and we’ll reach out with more details!

4. Log onto Zoom on the day of and let the chai making commence! This can be a virtual or hybrid event.
How do we extend the authenticity, respect and tradition behind a cup of chai to the Western World?
Founded by brothers Ayan and Ani Sanyal, the company reflects the first-generation immigrant experience in the U.S., without leaning into the predictable tropes found at other South Asian establishments.
With features in Food & Wine Magazine, Good Morning America and more, Kolkata Chai is focused on keeping authenticity at its core and it shares the goodness of chai with the world.
WHAT YOU'LL FIND IN EVERY CUP
Did you know, “chai” translates to “tea”, so every time you hear someone say “chai tea”, they’re essentially repeating themselves.
WHAT IS CHAI?
Chai is milk tea with spices. Usually it features Black CTC tea from the Assam region of India, mixed with milk and spices such as cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper. Chai is prepared by mixing all of these ingredients over a low heat until it achieves an earthy, brown color.
