To the REAL founder of Jacob's Well Chai...

Happy father's day to the real founder of Jacob's Well Chai - dad!

We've been brewing masala chai concentrate since 2016; at first for our own cafe use only. It was born out of our love for our dad that got us brewing chai. And here's how our little story goes.

My sister and I used to run Testify Coffee and Rare Finds (our first coffee shop) where our dad would obviously frequently hang-out. All was good except for one thing: dad drinks very little coffee and has zero appreciation for specialty coffee. That broke our hearts -partly because we feel like he couldn't fully enjoy the shop, and partly because there's nothing we could sell to him. So as brothers and sisters, we set out to find "his drink".

The search didn't come easy. My sister and i just didn't want to put something out there just because. Consequently, we thought if it's something dad will drink regularly, it has to be healthy. To cut the long story short, after a few R&D we ended up brewing our own chai with no artificial preservatives added. Our chai was approved! The masala chai became an instant hit for him.

Masala Chai first started as an off-the-menu item in the shop until several friends took notice of it and wanted to order it too.  

Today, we're proud to say that our dad-approved chai is now being enjoyed by more than enough people we could have probably accommodated in our less than 50sqm cafe. 

You can now also enjoy Jacob's Well Chai through your own kitchen (250mL chai concentrate retail bottle) or from your favorite local coffee shop.


P.S. Ask your favorite cafe where their chai comes from?

Jacob's Well Chai is also available for retail in Real Food (Molito, and BGC), Urban Pantry (Promenade, San Juan)
