This live-streaming chai masterclass is a one-hour class to teach you the basics of chai. Hosted by Uppma Virdi from Chai Walli, this class will help you perfect your chai brew.

She will guide you through what chai is, how to select the spices that go into your chai blend, how chai is traditionally brewed and how to pick the best ingredients for your chai. Uppma will show you how to brew a chai on the stove and you can join her live in doing this in the comfort of your home if you have access to a stove too.

By the end of this live online class you will be able to:

  • Understand what chai actually is.
  • Identify the main spices that can go into a chai blend.
  • How to brew chai properly and authentically at home using traditional Indian methods.
  • Identify what makes a good chai vs. a not-so-good chai.

Throughout the class, you'll be in Uppma's capable hands. The granddaughter of an Ayurvedic doctor who specialised in Indian spices and remedial chai, her rich Indian upbringing involved playing and experimenting with Indian herbs and spices — chai was simply a part of daily life.

Before the class, you'll be emailed information about what you can bring to the class, including a recipe for a chai masala blend using the spices you have at home. Uppma will deliver this class in a fun, open and comfortable approach for you to learn all about chai; the beloved national drink of India!

Uppma is the granddaughter of an Ayurvedic doctor who specialised in herbs and spices. She is a first generation Indian Australian migrant who left her career as a lawyer to follow her passion to share her ancient family recipes with the world.

Frustrated with the lack of authenticity, she started Chai Walli to educate people on the genuine beauty of Indian teas and spices that her grandfather gifted her with.

Uppma grew up with her mother’s love of cooking ingrained in her veins. She uses her innate senses to balance spices according to their Ayurvedic elements and teach others the Art of Chai.

Leading a team of passionate individuals, Uppma runs her small Australian business with deep values. All the blends are formulated and created by Uppma using her love of natural wholesome ingredients and family recipes.

We are grateful that we can share our ritual of chai and our art of creating beautiful blends with you. Thank you for choosing to support artisan makers like us. Your love for quality handcrafted products means that we get to share cultural heritage and age old techniques in a modern light with you and many others.

We care deeply about the suppliers we work with. We choose to have a tea farm to tea cup policy, which allows us to support some truly amazing tea estates in India producing organic and fair trade teas.

Our humble beginnings started with Uppma blending spices in her parent’s basement recreating her grandfather’s blends. Today, we are proud to have several award winning and well renowned masala chai and spice blends which are experienced by our amazing customers all around the world.

So come, join Uppma, Australia's leading educator in all things flavour, spice and tea.
