I’m not drinking enough soymilk.
I keep forgetting this and buying soymilk anyway, even though I’ve got unopened cartons at home, so now I have a ridiculous surplus of soymilk and ought to try to correct this.
And most of the time when I drink soymilk, it’s in a chai latte.
Soymilk because dairy milk makes most chai taste oddly sugary to me, even before sweetening. Soy lets it retain an edge for some reason. One day I’ll be a good enough flavour scientist to explain it.
A lot of people seem to think this chai is sort of meh, but it ticks a few important chai boxes for me. First, it’s not heavily clovey, which is good since I’m not fond a ton of cloves at all. Second, peppercorn, which makes me happy. And there’s enough cardamom and ginger happening in there that it doesn’t taste like hot soymilk that somebody’s sprinkled a little cinnamon into (why bother?).
Now I just have to make sure to finish the other two-thirds of soymilk in the carton before it starts to go. It’s so hard to eat all the servings of food before they start to go funny when you’re single and you live alone.
