iced chai

Authentic Indian chai is a perfect blend of bold, spicy, creamy goodness. Done right, it brings a harmonious moment of reflection and balance. Since our founder, Bipin Patel, first started serving his grandmother’s magical masala chai, our company has been passionately devoted to bringing his recipe and his values to the world.

We believe in working towards making the world a better place. In that spirit, we align ourselves with organic and sustainable business practices wherever possible. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, for example, we introduced our quick brew line, Tipu’s Chai Now®, which allows us to ship lighter, more efficient packages rather than heavy plastic bottles filled with liquid concentrate.

We hope that Kashi Patel’s recipe continues to deliver happiness in every cup and inspires you to spread the #chailove

Bipin Patel

Original and Traditional

The founder of Tipu’s® Chai, Bipin served his grandmother’s recipe for authentic Indian chai in his popular Missoula, Montana Indian restaurant in 1997. It was in such demand that he was soon selling it to other restaurants, local businesses and coffee shops. In 2007, Bipin sold the restaurant to focus his efforts on sharing his grandmother’s special recipe with the world. Bipin is now semi-retired but keeps careful track of us.

Reflection and Balance

Always the pleasant voice on the phone, Varada processes orders and handles accounts and invoicing. We don't know if she finds her congeniality on her long Montana trail rides or in a steaming cup of Tipu's Chai. Either way, she's always happy to assist.
