Hello One of a Kind Shopper! We are so excited to introduce ourselves to you. We are Eamon and Becca and we hand-make unique, sticky tea blends in Toronto.
We met working in our first “career jobs” after graduating with business/marketing degrees from various universities. It didn’t take either of us too long to realize we wanted more from life than a 9-5 that didn’t allow us to express our creativity and spirit. So, we respectfully declined our next contracts and decided to go on an inspirational, life-changing adventure.
Together we traveled the world for over three years, living and working in Australia for one year along the way. There we managed an independently owned coffee shop that sold the most amazing fresh blend chai handmade in house by the owner.
From Australia, we backpacked through Nepal and India for several months. These are the chai drinking nations of the world and we loved the ritual of drinking our morning chai fresh from the Chaiwala himself. When we returned home to Toronto, we frequented many artisanal shops looking for something we had tasted abroad and were disappointed to discover that most places sell concentrated syrups, powders or at best a dry loose leaf tea. It was then that we knew there was a place for us to handcraft a blend of freshly ground spices, fresh ginger and honey. And, Chaiwala ("Tea Maker") was born.
When we are not in the kitchen making chai, we are living on the road in Trinity the Sprinter (our self-converted home on wheels) spreading the word about fresh chai!
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
We are the only producers of fresh chai in all of North America which makes our processes, our product and our ingredients truly one of a kind! Also, just like all the amazing artisans of OOAK, we infuse our love and personality into everything we do making it unique to us.
We are proud to source our ingredients directly from farmers all over the world and blend them with love locally. Promoting sustainable agriculture, transparency and fair compensation for all players along the supply chain is important to us, which is why we have partnered with the social enterprise, Mana Organics, in India. Mana Organics has connected us with organic farmers in India in order to source our raw ingredients directly.
Our primary ingredients include black assam tea or red rooibos tea, freshly grated raw ginger root, Canadian honey, and a variety of eight freshly ground spices.
