Our chai

is so much more than a great drink; we’re invested in the experience beyond the cup, and passionate about quality. With Third Street Chai, the only way to brew a tea we’re proud of is using the best of the best, and that simply comes down to our herbs and spices. We are the first Fair Trade Certified chai in the world. We are proud to use Fair Trade ingredients, where we can foster that relationship with our growers, suppliers and team.

And you know what?

We can taste the difference of ethically-sourced spices, while doing business with amazing farmers…it’s really nice to have pen pals all over the world who can rejoice in the love for cinnamon sticks, you know? And as serious spice fiends, we geek out about the journey of our ingredients, from root to cup. We travel to India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Egypt, and Trinidad every year to visit our farmers and yes, spend our days smelling buckets and buckets of fresh cardamom and nutmeg. 10/10 recommend.

The adventurous spirit and hearty goodness goes into the legacy of every cup, and well, it’s part of the secret recipe…shhh! You can sip pretty knowing that our ingredients come from a high standard of economic, environmental, and social criteria.


Honey Vanilla Spice

Smooth, creamy, and sweet. We’re talking chai that’s been tinkered with love and affection with nature’s nectar running through, and you can feel it in this cup. Our take? Make it dirty with an espresso shot.

Mystic Masala Spice

One of our go-tos, our Mystic Masala Chai has a deep Assam black tea base, spiced with ground herbs and ginger. The addition of milk takes this to a new level of rich, smooth, and dreamy.

Dragon Tongue Ginger

Mmmmm, the perfect remedy for a winter afternoon or a rejuvenating summer treat. A beautiful blend of fine black tea and warm spices, intercepted with the kick from grated ginger. It’s spicy, it’s sweet, it’s delicious. Enjoy hot or over ice.

Yerba Maté Chai

Yerba maté is an “herb from the gods”, as the Guarani people called it, and originates from South America. It makes a delicious mate, an herbaceous and botanical-infused tea. The history of yerba maté is steeped with folklore, and we are honored to celebrate it.

Meant to be shared from a gourd, we created our Yerba Maté Chai echoing the warm sentiment of enjoying it in good company (or honestly, with yourself). We’re here for it. Our yerba maté chai is an elixir of black tea and spices, with a plant-powered caffeine boost.

This one’s for the hustlers, go-getters, dreamers, members of #TeamNoSleep. This is a quadruple whammy with antioxidants, caffeine, stamina-fueling goodness, and mind-sharpening powers. Cue Ciara, this is major leveling up!
