In their four years travelling the globe, Vincent Conti and Mario Minichilli discovered authentic masala tea throughout Asia. They fell in love with the aromatic beverage and learnt all about the origins and health benefits.
Upon returning to Australia they opened a café in St Kilda and set out to develop the best chai blend possible, inspired by those they’d fallen in love with in India.
As they perfected their recipe, customers grew to love their sticky chai. Fate then brought about a friendship with Koray Gencel, and Prana Chai was born!
What Makes Prana Chai the Best Chai in Australia?
Prana Chai is handmade for you fresh each day in Melbourne by the founders, Vincent, Koray & Mario. In the beginning some people referred to Prana Chai as a wet chai, because of its shiny appearance - but real chai lovers know it to be sticky chai. We make this sticky goodness with all natural ingredients and without artificial sweeteners, preservatives and additives.
Prana is a Sanskrit word that translates as ‘life force’. And we try to put this prana into our daily chai production. This is the essence of what makes our sticky chai so special, that it’s made for you, with love.

Our unique Original Masala Chai Blend combines premium black tea with pure honey, cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, cloves, peppercorn and ginger root for the ultimate taste sensation. The result is a smooth, not-too-spicy, not-too-sweet chai blend that tastes great morning, noon or night.
Prana Chai continue to tinker away with their sticky chai recipes, developing a Vegan Chai Blend (sans honey), a healthy, tasty Turmeric Chai Blend, and a wonderfully refreshing Peppermint Chai Blend.
