MaiChai was born from London’s legacy of tea.

Although British history is steeped in tea, we struggled to conveniently find high-quality tea to take away. At MaiChai, we believe every Londoner should be able to get their perfect cup of tea, whenever and wherever they want. Every one of our teas is sourced through a rigorous research process. Handpicked by tea tasters who curate the perfect leaves from hundreds of ‘ordinary’ leaves. Then our expert teasmiths blend over twenty varieties of loose-leaf tea to perfection using cutting-edge brewing technology. Whether you’re looking for a morning caffeine jolt or afternoon wind-down, we will always have the perfect cup to suit your mood.
