Of course you don’t have to give up chai! India’s favourite beverage, the country’s productivity is hinged on regular access to “Kati Chai”. The beverage is always had piping hot across the year. On a plant-based diet, you can just replace dairy with dairy-free milk. The chai will taste different, but the difference is hardly noticeable. And if you use almond or cashew milk, the flavour of tea is awesome.
