Seattle-based entrepreneur, Jillu Zavieri, founded Jaipur Avenue after returning from a trip with a friend where they prepared a very authentic tasting chai from a packet – not from scratch.  It was that moment, while relaxing after a long hot day on safari, that the idea of making and importing such an easy yet authentic tasting chai product was born.  After many tweaks – mostly around the sugar content – Jaipur Avenue was launched. 

Jillu now produces six different flavors of Chai under her brand, including Original (Masala), Saffron, Lemongrass, Ginger, Vanilla and Cardamom - as well as a less sweet Masala.  All are unique, and all are delish.  Made with less sugar than many of the commercially available or pre-made chai, they don’t make your teeth ache from the sweetness – which is a good thing! Each box contains 8 individual packets, already to just mix with hot water or hot milk – your preference. I, personally, always make it either with milk or hot cream or half-and-half – because I like my chai extra milky.  But it’s up to you - because it's YOUR chai!

Hi ChefShop🙋‍♀️🌻,
Who needs Space X? I’d rather have Scottie beam me up…from Virginia over to you guys! In the meantime my Sundays are complete with the ChefShop (newsletter) and The New York Times.  Best, from the East coast!
