Lynn shared this little secret with me, and it is genius:
1 constant comment teabag
1 ginger tea teabag (yogi tea is good)
1 packet of sugar in the raw (best stolen by the handful from coffeeshop)
VERY VANILLA silk soymilk
overbrew the teabags a little bit in a mug & add other stuff. it’s a reasonable facsimile and way cheap. you can get all the ingredients for about the cost of two starbucks chais.
