My partner and I bought a ute (Toyota Hilux) and built our own 2x2m tiny home on the back of a box trailer. We set out to live life deliberately, and meet with and work with communities where they are. We spent the last 4 years travelling 60,000km (one and a half times the circumference of the Earth) working with the most incredible and vibrant rural Australian communities. Doing so, I saw a lot of similarities in these communities, between my story and theirs. One community really stuck with me. The town of Wilcannia, nestled on the edge of the Darling River in red desert country, 9 hours North-West of Canberra, has the lowest life expectancy in the world. 37 years of age. I was devastated by the fact that the biggest killer of people my age is suicide. If you live in a rural community, you are 2x more likely to commit suicide.
I knew that I’d found my place to make an impact in the world. Sharing my story years ago had saved my life, making me feel connected. So, MIKS CHAI was born. The idea is simple. We make delicious chai for you to share. We believe that sharing stories around a hot (or ice cold) cuppa chai saves lives. We searched Australia high and low for the best ingredients, and made over 1000 cups of tea to find the ultimate recipe. Be proud of who you are and bring the fire and passion to who you want to be.
