Bhakti Chai

“In Sanskrit, Bhakti means devotion. We are a mission driven company steeped in sustainable practices and devotion through social action.” -- Bhakti Chai

Origin of Bhakti

Bhakti Chai Founder Brook EddyIt all began in 2002 when Bhakti Chai founder Brook Eddy traveled to India. Interested in the Bhakti social justice movement, she wanted to learn more. While there, she fell in love with the bold mentality that everyone has the responsibility to contribute to the community and the bold, spicy chai that daily brought communities together. She found that in sharing a cup of chai with families that she met, they were also sharing their zest for life and their dedication to the ritual of taking time during the day to drink in the moment.

Bhakti LogoAfter returning to Colorado, Brook began brewing her own chai - experimenting with spices and including fresh pressed ginger to add that extra zing she remembered from her trip. Friends and neighbors soon became customers and fervent fans of her chai and the social action principles behind her new venture: Bhakti Chai.

Today Bhakti Chai is devoted to being bold -- with their products, their business practices and with the way that they give back -- in order to live up to their founding philosophy and create a lasting positive impact.

Bhakti Chai Original ConcentrateThis artisan craft brewed chai fuses vibrant flavors from the highest quality, sustainably sourced ingredients: antioxidant rich Fair Trade Certified black tea, organic ginger and milled spices. Unlike other chai producers, Bhakti uses fresh pressed ginger rather than processed ginger powders in order to ensure that their products contain all of the root’s inherent nutritional benefits and rich spice. Currently BPS offers both of their shelf stable blends:
