Hi, I'm Tania.
I LOVE chai, yet I'm often disappointed that so many cafes serve sickly-sweet, chemical-laden chai powders and syrups that leave me feeling queasy.
So a few years ago, I started making my own blend to add to my morning smoothie.
Frozen banana, ice, a handful of nuts, filtered water, a spoonful of my blend, and mornings were sorted.
I discovered it was also delicious in hot almond milk, perfect for chilly mornings.
Then I hit that time of life where my daily fantasy was to run away from home and live in a small country town in Southern France.
Well, Mary Moody did it! If you don't know Mary, she's a former ABC presenter who wrote "Au Revoir: Running Away from Home at Fifty."
So before I packed my bags and bought a one-way ticket to France (when you could still visit France), I started researching possible antidotes to help balance my hormones and stabilise my moods.
I discovered that almost every ingredient in chai has a multitude of healing properties.
More research uncovered the world of ancient adaptogens, natural medicines that help the body deal with stress.
I then experimented with blends that brought these potent ingredients together, yet without the sugar, additives and other nasties.
And because I don't actually like the bitter taste of tea (typically the main ingredient in modern chai), I chose to create a caffeine-free blend.
The first Make My Day blend was born and it literally became My Daily Chai.
A few friends became willing guinea pigs, with one saying "it's the best thing I've ever had in my mouth"!
Best testimonial ever!
The more I shared my 100% organic blend, the more people started saying...
"You should package this up before every woman over 40 runs away from home."
So I did and this online store opened in September 2019.
I'm thrilled you're here and have a feeling you're about to become the next chai addict.
PS: If you've lost your way and can't find the store you can shop here.
