About Us - Aura Chai

Our Story

We first tasted chai latte when we were living in Aussie foodie capital Melbourne, where coffee shop culture is everything. Each café bar sold fresh, often homemade chai lattes and I came to love them. When we moved back to Manchester we naturally started to crave my weekly cup of warming, comforting, spicy chai – especially during winter months and on rainy days! But we found that few coffee shops here in the UK sold chai latte – and when they did, it was made with sugary powder or syrup, even in the most upmarket establishments. We were so disappointed and sorely missed ‘proper’ chai lattes. I wanted a wholesome, healthy, tasty alternative, and we knew we wouldn’t be the only ones. Sure enough, when we asked other chai lovers what they thought of the choice available, they felt exactly the same way.

Six months after moving back to Manchester we decided to try and develop our own recipe so that we could have a ‘proper’ chai latte at home – and share it with other chai lovers, too. After a few attempts and lots of tasting sessions (most necessary, some just for fun!) we created and perfected our unique, top secret blend – and set out to share it with some of our favourite establishments in and around Manchester.

Authenticity is so important to us – we wanted to bring chai latte right back to its roots and offer proper tasty chai to enjoy at home and for discerning coffee shops to serve to customers.  We think it’s one of the tastiest chai blends available – and we hope you do, too!
