Created by Melbourne-based Gauri and Apoorv in 2015, Original Chai Co. has enjoyed international success starting with a traditionally styled stall at the Queen Victoria Market, to now a truck at Melbourne Central Station, a growing list of wholesalers and now a delivery service. The couple pays homage to both their mother’s traditional recipes which are naturally low in caffeine, gluten free, with no hidden sugars and an authentic taste of India, not like most chai’s in Australia.
