Meet Tipala

cha wala & dog lover

Hi!  I'm Tiff. 


My Grandma Lalita (aka Ba) calls me 'Tipala'.  She has a heart of gold, and is easily my favorite person.  She's also the OG cha maker in the family and showed me how to put all my love into what I create. 

I love you, Ba!

Thank you for being here, I'll keep it simple and straight forward.

My two greatest joys in life are cha and dogs. 

Let's start with cha, shall we?  The perfect balance of sweetness and spice, paired with aromatic whole spices and teas, simmered with fresh ginger and creamy milk (or in my case, mylk)... what's not to love?  A cup of cha is a treat to the body, mind, and soul. Following Ayurvedic guidelines, I carefully cool the tea before adding honey to ensure it keeps its healing anti-viral properties. Truly a nourishing and comforting break in the day, it's no wonder India dwellers commit to savoring these sweet moments every few hours.  

Dogs.  My other true loves.  Dog have been a source of eternal love since I was baby Tipala.  To me, they represent sheer joy with eyes that teach one how to truly live in the moment.


I carry the most love for the underdogs; mutts, shelter seals, breeds deemed unadoptable (and even illegal).  Since it is unrealistic to believe I will adopt every homeless dog and give them the life they deserve (maybe someday??), I am taking a more feasible approach. 


A portion of Tipala's Cha proceeds goes to Austin area animal shelters.  Together we can help provide those pups who have been left behind with medical care, warmth, food, and love while they wait for their fur-ever homes.

Well, prior to tasting Tipala's Cha I'd only had premixed junk or tea bags that were "chai". They were okay, but lacked substance. When I first tried Tipala's Cha I could IMMEDIATELY taste the fresh ginger and various spices that she uses. That is super appreciated because stale flavors are the reason I've been so indifferent towards other generic chais. Tipala's Cha has definitely changed my life and elevated the Cha experience for me. None will compare and I'm NOT exaggerating. Try it for yourself!

Love, Sam

This is the first real chai I've ever had, and it's now clear how watered down all the other "chai" I've previously had is. The ginger burns so good :) Can't wait to get some more!

The iced cha was bomb. All the flavors blasting. So so good. 


Tipala's Cha has a quality spice and sweetness to it, you can't stop drinking until it's all gone. Unfortunately, it does end. The bottle has a bottom which I wish was bottomless. The local honey used is nice and sweet at first but doesn't have the craziness that sugar has after consuming it. It's a sweet success that has me craving it daily! I have to stop myself from chugging it when I open a fresh bottle. That's the truth. I've had a lot of chai but I love this one as it only has the best ingredients. Since I have a sensitivity to foods that aren't of high quality, I know that when I drink this and feel good afterwards (without a sugar buzz), I know it is also doing my body good. Thanks, Tipala! Love this so much!


Comfort with a kick.


Every sip of cha is a moment of zen. I feel centered and ready for my day.


Tipala's Cha is second to none! I'm obsessed with tea so I know! It's one of those things that not only tastes absolutely amazing (hot or cold) but it nourishes your soul. You can feel the love that was put into making it with each sip. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy and my tummy truly appreciates all its lovely, simple, and organic ingredients. Everyone I have shared it with is wow'd! Do yourself a favor and grab a bottle or a case like me! You, your tummy, and your soul will be so thankful you did! Thank you Tiff for feeding my soul and tummy with such deliciousness. To say I love it would be an understatement.

I don't even like ginger but this cha is amazing. It warms your heart, body, soul, and spirit!!


Within many trips to India, I have had my share of chai. There are so many versions of this traditional tea, but I have yet to find one that matches Tipala's. The balance of sweetness, creaminess, and spice brings this tea to life. This is the best chai you will ever drink.



Get in Touch,

I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for submitting!
