Our Story

Dropout Chai Wala is the story of Sanjith Konda House, a business school dropout bringing Indian street chai to Melbourne. Inspired by his mother, who enjoyed a cup of chai daily for 21 years, Sanjith aims to share this cherished tradition with Melbourne. Thus, Dropout Chaiwala was born—a place where a dropout creates chai that unites families and friends at any time, offering a flawless experience. Visit our store to enjoy this special moment with your loved ones right here on the streets of Melbourne.

As Melbourne’s first chai store, we offer authentic blends in a convenient takeaway format. Whether you’re craving a taste of home or a coffee alternative, we have you covered.

Our Chai’s – Melbourne’s Favourite Chai

Our chai is made from naturally sourced ingredients and comes in a variety of flavors, including milk chai and no-milk tea, known as cutting chai and the famous masala chai from India. We also offer a selection of high-quality quick bites, carefully chosen to complement your chai experience.

At Dropout, we serve delicious and healthy sandwiches, snacks, desserts, and drinks. Our menu features a wide range of classic and innovative sandwiches, with our signature masala chai being the highlight. The Dropout menu has something for everyone!
