The story of Marcus Child & Chai Me
After selling his share in a Surry Hills café Marcus Child rode his BMW motorcycle forty thousand kilometers through twelve countries searching for the earth’s most dangerous roads, cultural enlightenment and the perfect chai. During this time he was pursued by militia wielding machine guns in Baluchistan, was arrested and interrogated in Iran, attacked by wild dogs in Turkey, endured blinding sand storms and ascended some of the highest motorable roads in the world. After descending the base camp of the world’s eighth highest mountain (pictured on the Chai Me label), Nangar Parbat, Northern Pakistan he traveled into the Sikh town of Amritsar, India. It was here whilst being surrounded by thousands of pilgrims that the methodologies and ingredients that go into creating “the perfect chai” were finally revealed to him. The medicinal benefits of the spices that go into creating Chai have been documented for centuries and the allure of the aroma that they possess have attracted traders from distant parts of the globe.
