The trouble with having a techie husband is that I have tended to leave all technology-related matters to him. (I know, shame on me.) This created quite a serious knowledge gap for me, especially when I began building an Internet-based business.I am continually amazed by the rapidity with which technology originates, develops and becomes integrated in everyday life. I’m sure you are, too. Maybe because I’m out of school (way out, I admit), it seems to take me longer and longer to see and…See More
I had the privilege of listening to (and even speaking briefly with) Mark Blumenthal, the founder and Executive Director of the American Botanical Council. Mr. Blumenthal reviewed the recent clinical and epidemiological research regarding the health benefits of tea.It is truly staggering, the increasing amount of research being devoted to the connection between tea drinking and good health. And it is difficult to ignore the daily reports about tea’s potential. Of course, as Mr. Blumenthal…See More

THE CHAI, BABY! STORY
Did you hear about the lawyer who took down her shingle and started a tea company? Well, sit down and take a load off, baby, and I’ll tell you the story. In her Indiana home, this lawyer had been longing for the real, traditional masala chai she’d had while growing up – steaming hot black tea with gloriously intermingling scents and spices. She remembered the warm, leisurely afternoons when she’d sit, sip and muse about life.
She decided that she had to find the masala chai of her memories to enjoy here and now. So, she searched! And she steeped! However, after she tried what seemed like a hundred different masala chais on the market, not one really re-captured her memories and experience.
So, she did what anyone would do. She decided to make her own Masala Chai! After enlisting a masterful tea blender, she sculpted and refined blend after blend, until she concocted The One. It was so perfect that she simply had to share it with others, and Chai, Baby! was born.
The lawyer-turned-tea designer delighted in the fact that she could share her life experiences through the medium of artistically blended teas, and she decided to pursue this passion. She went on to create a Jasmine & Rose green tea blend that exquisitely captured her frequent travels to the tropics. Then, she designed a unique Relaxation Blend based in the Ayurvedic herbal remedies she’d been given while growing up. And she knew that there would be many more all-natural, healthy and delicious tea blends to come.
And all because she wanted to have her chai and drink it too!
