Bondi Chai at Perth Good Food & Wine Show

If you live in Perth and are looking for something to do this weekend why not head over to the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre to the Good Food & Wine Show. It starts Friday 2nd July at 10am and goes until 5pm on Sunday 4th July. You will find all sorts of yummy food and drinks, not just wine. In fact the best tasting drink you will find will be Bondi Chai :) Melissa and Martin will be pumping out thousands of delicious free samples of Bondi Chai Club Cinnamon and Vanilla Honey chai latte and you will also be able to buy a take home pack or 2. You shouldn't have any trouble finding Bondi Chai latte - we will be at stand N1. If you are like me with maps don't panic - just look for the helium balloons and you will find us. As a special treat we have had some Bondi Chai fudge made up especially for this event by Anvers - the best fudge makers in Tasmania!

Saudi Arabia enjoys Bondi Chai latte

When next you are in Jeddah and need to escape the heat (it was 41 degrees when Martin was there) drop in to Bonnon Coffee and enjoy the air conditioning and a Bondi Chai latte (of course) !

Bondi Chai at Spice of Life Cafe & Deli

We always knew that Bondi Chai was the spice of life (for us at least) so we were very excited when we wandered in to the Spice of Life Cafe & Deli in North Tamborine for breakfast during one of our Bondi Chai road trips and discovered that they had our Vanilla Honey and Club Cinnamon Bondi Chai latte for sale on their shelves. So if you live in the area and are searching for somewhere to replenish your stocks of Bondi Chai latte pop in to the Spice of Life Cafe & Deli in Main Street and grab a pack or 2 :)

Bondi Chai's World Cup promotion

We decided to visit one of the cafes that sells Bondi Chai in Jeddah. We got talking to the owner and came up with a great way to promote Bondi Chai - a World Cup promotion. If you happen to be in Jeddah head down to the Havana Cafe where they will have the big screens set up in the car park so everyone can get a seat. Better make sure you try one of their world cup special drinks - Bondi Chai

Bondi Chai now at Radisson Chennai

Our Internations Sales and Marking Manager, Amar, joined us in India (his home country) to promote Bondi Chai latte to the Food and Beverage team at the Radisson in Chennai. He did such a great presentation that they decided immediately to include Bondi Chai latte on their menu and even created a new dessert featuring Bondi Chai which they surprised us with at dinner later that night. What an amazing achievement!

Taking Bondi Chai to India

Our recent overseas trip include a very exciting time in India - taking bondi Chai back to the roots of Chai latte. Indian taste buds prefer our Vanilla Honey Bondi Chai because it so different to their own strong tea based chai. We met with the marketing branding and communications manager of the very best deli in Mumbai - Indigo Delicatessen - and are very proud to announce that they have now included Bondi Chai latte on their menu. Check out their website below - their food is amazing - I had the best sandwich I have ever eaten!!

Bondi Chai's overseas expansion

We have just returned from a whirlwind trip of several continents promoting the best Chai latte in Australia - Bondi Chai! It was very rewarding to walk into cafe's all over the world and see our "baby" on the menu and know that it is being so well received in other countries. We had our first overseas meeting with distributors from the UK and Holland in Amsterdam (no - we didnt visit the "coffee houses") and are glad to see that Bondi Chai is really starting to grow it's presence in Europe. If you find yourself in Egmond aan Zee in Holland drop in to Zilte Zoen cafe and enjoy a Bondi Chai latte by the seaside. You will also find Bondi Chai at Zoomers Cafe in Castricum. :)
