Brook Eddy's Social Links
Brook Eddy is the fonder of Bhakti Chai. She studied Social Policy and Non-Profit Management at the University of Michigan and graduated in 1997. This Boulder, Colorado citizen traveled to India in 2002 to study Bhakti, a social movement based on devotion. When she returned to the United States, she was unable to locate the spicy chai that she had enjoyed in India. She than began to make her own chai. Friends and neighbors, who enjoyed the tea, encouraged her to begin to sell it. By 2006, she was delivering her drinks to local cafes and markets for distribution. In 2008, she was able to quit her full-time job and focus only on Bhakti Chai. The company now works out of a 4,5000 square foot building in Longmont, Colorado. She bases her business on social change and charitable actions stressed in Bhakti. The drink was awarded the 2012 Best of Show at the Natural Products Expo West. Its biggest distributor is Whole Foods Markets. In 2011, the company donated over 3 percent of their revenue to causes and foundations, which support girls, women, and the earth. As of 2013, the company has become Non-GMO Project Verified.
