My Favorite Vegan Winter Drink

Even though California weather can be very unpredictable, it has been rather cold the past few weeks!

As the temperature drops, my daily tea intake increases substantially (even though I already drink an unhealthy amount on normal days). 

Some of my favorite teas are chai and earl grey, with a touch of cream. Lately, I have been warming and frothing my cream which is a total game changer! This Sur La Table frother is similar to mine, and not too expensive either :) 

With all that said, my go-to drink this winter has been a cacao chai tea latte!
