Which Vegan Milk is Best in Tea

Before I became Vegan I was a die-hard coffee drinker and fan.

I would drink 3-5 coffee per day, usually from the drive through at Tim Horton’s.

But once I became vegan my options got really limited.

I tried black coffee.
I tried coffee with soy milk but that was only at limited shops.
I tried coffee from Starbucks which was good but I just can’t get on board with paying $6 for a coffee on the regular.

And of course now we are in quarantine so I’m not going to drive throughs anyway.

Eventually I turned to tea and I then discovered the wonderful variety of milks for vegans:

  • Almond milk
  • Cashew milk
  • Soy milk
  • Oat milk

I’ve tried all the milks above and my favorite by far is oat milk. It’s the best vegan milk for tea!

I first discovered herbal teas when I went to visit a friend who offered me one and I was like – why didn’t someone tell me how delicious these were sooner?!

I almost went on a very expensive shopping spree at this site: Lemon Lily Tea. I resisted, for now 😉

I did get a bunch at my local health food store, though. The Classic Chai tea is my favorite!

When it comes down to an everyday tea with a bit of caffeine, then I love to make a London Fog tea, at home, with oat milk.

Here’s how I make it:

  • Steep the tea. I use Twinnings Earl Grey Tea.
  • Remove teabag and add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup.
  • Blend up the oat milk so it’s frothy and awesome. My favorite Oat Milk is Earth’s Own.
  • Add cinnamon on top.
  • Add coconut whipped cream on top of the cinnamon. Gay Lea Coconut Whipped Cream is the one I’m using here.

I know an official London Fog is supposed to include vanilla but I didn’t really find vanilla extract did add anything to it and I don’t want to go putting chemical filled additives so I just leave it out.

You could add a vanilla flavoring if you like!

Voila! Yummy fancy tea at home.

Of course this is purely an opinion post.

I love oat milk in my tea and think it is by far the most delicious but I want to know what YOU think:

Which vegan milk is best in tea?

Also what kind of tea is best?

What are your thoughts on this?
