The Chai Guy
Jayson | Owner + Operator
Jayson acquired a passion for tea and all things vintage at a young age from his grandparents. His Nana had over 80 tea pots in her collection, and Sunday mornings were spent with his Grandfather drinking earl grey all while enjoying coronation street.
Travel led Jayson to explore other cultures and was often welcomed with tea in every household he visited. From London to Bangkok, Jayson has enjoyed a variety of tea, and holds Masala Chai in the highest regard.
