How he likes his chai… “Make it the day before in a mason jar, keep it in the fridge overnight, guzzle the whole thing before 5am and blast-off. Honey or Stevia as sweeteners. 60% rice milk 40% water. Creamy awesomeness. And 2 spoonfuls of Rooibos Masala Chai added to my afternoon 4pm protein smoothie.”
