The Good Grain

Good Grain Golden Chai

Overnight oats brand The Good Grain unveiled a limited-edition Golden Chai variant specifically for the month of Veganuary. The brand chose the flavour to subvert the typical chai latte featuring artificial syrups, and replace it with a vegan option with no refined sugars.

“We wanted to create a flavour that people could satisfy their cravings with and make the swap for Veganuary easy, while getting breakfast included,” says the brand.

Available DTC from the brand’s website and from independent London retailers (rsp: £4.50).
