A Bit About Chai…

Here at David Rio, we make chai because we are inspired by traditional Indian milk tea, and we set out to blend Eastern traditions with Western style to create America’s Premier Chai. For centuries in India, “chai wallahs” have been brewing chai from black tea and real spices, then adding milk and honey to the final preparation. Inspired by them and Western café culture, our goal is to establish a premium product using high-quality ingredients with a rich, well-balanced taste, in a unique and attractive package. Chai is the perfect median between coffee and tea, earning its rightful place on café menus, and David Rio chai is the premier chai known worldwide as well as at home.

It’s All in Our Ingredients!

That’s right. We take special pride in choosing high quality ingredients from around the world to blend into our award-winning chai. We make our chai with freshly ground spices. Real spices, like cinnamon, clove, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger, are just a few we use to commemorate chai’s traditional but dynamic flavors. We wait until just before the canisters are sealed to mix these spices into every batch of David Rio chai. So just as you pour the hot water or milk over any David Rio chai mix, the distinctive chai fragrance and flavors begin to fully bloom into a well-balanced chai right in your cup.

Another ingredient we use that sets David Rio apart from other chai mixes is our GMO-free, non-dairy creamer, which offers a wonderfully creamy texture without the heaviness of chemicals and fillers. Every David Rio chai product is certified CRC Kosher, is free from hydrogenated oils, trans fats and gluten. The quality and mixture of spices and ingredients assure the crisp, clean flavor of our chai, boasting its depth in every sip.

We use USDA Certified Organic Spices in our signature Tiger Spice Chai® because we care about the ingredients in our products. Using organic spices delivers better quality, better taste, and is one of our many contributions to creating a healthy product and a healthy environment – for people, plants and animals.

David Rio chais are delicately blended into a convenient mix that make a perfect daily cup – at home or on the go. Simply mix with hot water or milk and enjoy. In fact, we feel so confident about our chai that we challenge you to do your own blind taste test. Compare any David Rio chai with another ready-to-drink chai, liquid, or dry mix and let us know how we do! We look forward to hearing from you.
