About the Brand
Alaya Tea is an Indian women-owned loose leaf tea company that sources organic and biodynamic teas from planet-friendly farms in India. Their name comes from "Himalaya," a region that grows some of the finest teas in the world.
After growing up on a daily ritual of drinking chai, traveling in the Himalayan region, and visiting small farmers and tea estates, co-founders Esha Chhabra and Smita Satiani wanted to build a company that would respect these communities and address the environmental challenges of agriculture.
Today, Alaya Tea’s mission is to invest in Indian farmers who are pioneering the organic and regenerative movement, celebrate women that are the backbone of the tea industry, and elevate tea-drinking culture in the United States.Shop Brand
