The 'Chime' is a chai tea latte machine that was designed by Gaurav Chawla. Using individual pods, it functions similarly to a one-cup coffee brewer -- providing consumers with a fast and efficient way to brew a hot tasty beverage at home.

As chai tea lattes can be time-consuming and messy to make, the Chime revolutionizes the process by making the drinks in just three minutes. As Mashable notes, the Chime is one of the first machines of its kind, making it a promising product on market and in areas where authentic chai drinks are popular.

The company packages the tea into custom recyclable containers that fit in the machine, which is then combined with frothy steamed milk. Once the drink is complete, the Chime cleans itself, alerting the consumer when the inserted detergent needs to be refilled via a smartphone app.
