About Sherpa Chai

- Himalayan Fair-trade farm to the best chai.

Sherpa Chai has been small batch brewed in Boulder by Sherpas from Nepal since 2014. It’s the best tasting, most authentic chai on the market.

We source our tea from the Kangchenjunga Himalaya region of Nepal, ginger root from Peru, and use the best ingredients like cardamon, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Sherpa Chai concentrates are certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Certified

Our generations-old, Nepalese recipe comes from our founder’s mother. Sherpa Chai is Sherpa owned and operated and is committed to giving back to the community.

Today, our founder, Pemba Sherpa, lives in Boulder, Colorado. He is proud to be the first indigenous Sherpa to share this timeless family recipe with you.


In 1991 I immigrated to the United States with $200, a back pack, tent, sleeping bag and big dreams.

In 2001, I was fortunate to start Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant and Bar in Boulder, Colorado, where gallons of Sherpa Chai are served every day!

Our story began at 10,000 ft in the high mountain region of the Himalayas, situated in the town of Sengma.

Early in the morning, I would venture out on my 3 hour hike to school, which inspired me to one day build a suspension bridge so kids could walk to school in only half an hour!

My small village consisted of no more than 10 houses. As a young boy, I eagerly waited for my mother to serve me delicious chai, and the spiced tea would warm my whole body.

I grew up as a professional mountain guide, always enjoying a hot, fresh cup of my mother’s chai before, during, and after each expedition.

I ran up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,431’ of elevation) in a single day, run a 5K race in 15 minutes and 7 seconds, have participated in world-class ice climbing competitions, and practice yoga daily.
