About the Owner
Like most things, Dem Good Chai started with a seed, a seed that was planted on a soul journey in India, that grew until it became a calling for a new way of life for our founder Bob and his young family.
While studying Massage Therapy in Pondicherry, South India in 2016, Bob was introduced to the healing power of Ayurvedic spices and the beautiful chai culture of India.
Under the guidance of his teacher, he started to drink
immune-supporting chai every day. He learned the craft of making different chais and the creativity to make it healthier, without abandoning the core values of the rituals.
The natural health-enhancing benefits were manifested, as he welcomed vibrant health, awakened senses and an open heart into his life.
Eager to continue his daily self-care ritual after leaving India, Bob decided to create his own immune-supporting chai. One with the same purity and Ayurvedic power, but now with a rich and indulgent flavour. His first blend was born in his own small kitchen, grinding local, organic spices in an old coffee grinder. This chai would later become known as Golden Immunitea, the very first blend of many.
This independent act of natural healing ignited a soul passion. And as Bob continued to study plant medicine and herbal healing his knowledge grew rapidly, and so did the requests for his indulgent, healing chai blends.
What started as a personal healing ritual, became a passion that manifested itself into an undeniable calling for to lead a bold new life, one rooted in natural healing, intention and in harmony with nature: Dem Good Chai was born.
