During caffeine-fueled grad-school study sessions, Amy Rothstein brewed up a business plan for an all-natural chai company. Capitalizing on the explosion of locally-sourced beverages at New York's cozy coffee shops and gourmet markets, her chai has hit the big time. 

Just after launch, Amy's brother Peter moved to NYC to be her business partner. They now sell their handmade Dona Chai chai concentrate to hundreds of shops and retailers.

Dona Chai is Brooklyn’s original chai concentrate, handcrafted in small batches using fresh ginger, freshly ground cinnamon, green cardamom, cloves, black peppercorns, and organic black tea. The slow steeping process builds complexity of flavor and preserves the purity of our ingredients. The result is a cup of bold and flavorful chai tea - fresh, natural, and Brooklyn-made.
