About

Namjai produces non-carbonated, naturally caffeine-free, fresh-brewed, and low calorie herbal iced teas. Packed with immune-boosting antioxidants, anthocyanins, beta-carotene, and vitamins, these Thailand inspired teas are served in brightly colored 12oz aluminum cans, which are most eco-friendly in terms of environmental impact and recyclability.

Unlike many functional beverages with zero calories and zero taste, Namjai has a modest 50 calories or fewer per 12oz can, which delivers the full flavors of the teas. T naturally caffeine-free, so there is no energy spike and crash. Available in three flavors - Blue Tea, Red Tea & Yellow Tea, Namjai's ingredients include chrysanthemum, butterfly pea flower, roselle, and monk fruit, which have been brewed in teas for centuries in Thailand and surrounding countries.

 Namjai donates a portion of sales to Phuket Sunshine Village, which supports foster kids in Phuket who have been impacted by the precipitous drop in tourism.

Founding Story

Chris Giblin and Rossukon Maliwan founded Namjai in the summer of 2020 to introduce delicious and functional Thai herbal iced teas in North America. It started in 2016 when Chris served herbal iced teas as welcome drinks to guests checking into their boutique hotel in Phuket. The guests loved the unique flavors, colors, and health benefits. Moreover, many would ask how to make it and would end up taking the ingredients home on their departure. When Chris and Rossukon exited the hotel business, they continued brewing herbal iced teas at home and sharing them with friends and family. Amidst the positive responses for their teas, they decided to ramp up their production through a local co-packer and share these amazing teas with the world.
