THE NATURAL PROCESS
Our process is beautiful in its simplicity. We source fresh, whole spices from many parts of the world such as India, Sri Lanka and Guatemala. We crack open and blend these spices with tea and honey, by hand! Then we put it in a bag and send it on its merry way.
All the ingredients are natural and all the ingredients are good for you, it’s an honest product. We do not use machines, additives or preservatives to ensure the Prana (life force) in our product stays intact.
Meet the team
Hi! I'm originally from Sri Lanka (the land of tea!) but have lived in Australia for the past 20 years! I have been a part of the team for about 7 or 8 years now. It's been so long that it feels like forever! I started at the very beginning when the boys use to run a cafe during the day and my best mate and I worked nights producing the chai as our part-time jobs. Gradually as Prana chai grew, I too grew with it - now I am Factory Production Manager.
Hi! I am Sunil and people call me Sunzi. I’m originally from India, I have lived in Australia for the past 5 years!
I have been a part of the Prana team for about 3 years now. It's been so long that it feels like forever! My role is to make chai and maintain the production levels.
I like the taste of of chai, with the different flavours. Mostly I never have had chai with these flavours before, even though I grew up drinking chai!
One of my favourites is our Peppermint.
I'm so grateful to be part of the Prana team because not only is it a job, it's a family. I am happy to be a part of Prana Chai, with lots of love! ❤️
When I first met Kotaro is when I first met PRANA CHAI.
Love this chai ever since.
I love snowboarding, surfing and surf skating.
Snowboarding brought me to Myoko and met Kotaro and also it brought me to Australia.
I’ve done a season in Falls Creak and lived in Melbourne to learn the coffee culture.
It’s an real honour to join the Japan team!
I am from a coastal city in Spain. I love the beach, reading, travelling and spending time with my family.I have been part of Prana Chai (in one way or another) from the very beginning and I love how we take care of each other. It's not just a job, it is a family.

I am super grateful for the amazing opportunity and the team that I've been sharing the journey with. I miss the Melbourne coffee, yoga scenes, creative community, avocado on toast, Sunday farmers market, enjoying the sunshine at the beach and all my friends back in Melbourne.
Joined the team in 2016. Now share the love of Prana Chai to Japan! Back in 2011, I started working for one of the coffee shops in Melbourne and I met a bowl head barista working behind a machine with me, I was steaming up milk, and he was pulling shots (and he was watching cricket game on his phone. Even though 20ppl waiting for coffee..). This barista was Mario. Simply I felt in love with the chai since Mario showed me how it's made. And I decided to come back to Japan to share this beautiful stuff for Japanese people! There was no culture in Japan having chai in the menu at specialty coffee shops like Melbourne. Now, I am so grateful for opening another door for Japanese cafe users!

I joined the team in 2014 to bring Prana Chai to North America, although my history with the Prana family dates back to 2001 when I crossed paths with a pair of Aussies (eventual brand founders) while traveling in Africa.
Fast forward almost 20 years and I'm grateful to represent a unique product alongside old friends and new ones on our growing global team. My wife, daughter and I are based in Portland OR, from where we enjoy local and international travel, the great outdoors, and an excellent selection of roasteries, breweries and food trucks.
Hey, I’m James. I’ve been working hospo since I was 20. Not long after entering the world of hospitality I opened my own cafe where I learnt a lot about the coffee industry and the challenges of running a business. During this venture I got to know the guys behind Prana, which soon enough led me to become part of the Prana Chai family.
You can now find me on the streets of London spreading the word of the good stuff, which has so far been an unreal opportunity!

I am 28 years old, super fit and like sky diving, fire breathing and my new found past time of juggling infant cougars while walking a tightrope! No just kidding. I'm a middle-aged bald man that loves travel and spending time with my family. I feel blessed and very lucky to be working at Prana Chai because, well, it's not work. I really love the team and that we consider each other family. The product has many positive effects on people and their businesses so it's a real pleasure to share.
Camus, Fowles, Marquez, Auster and Pamuk type of guy who loves his family, friends and all types of sports. Especially basketball. That's all you need to know at this stage :-) Happy to tell you more if you visit us at the factory.
