Sugar Free Thai Tea with Chia Seeds (fauxba)

Back in the day, I could easily kill one of these drinks any time I’d go out for Thai food. If you are new to thai tea – it is an ultra sweet herbal black tea that is mixed with spices and typically combined with heavy cream and LOTS of sugar. This version is sugar free, has a pack of fiber, and is super easy to make. The chia seeds add a nice texture to the drink and gives it a chew to help you get boba vibes – which is why we call it fauxba 🙂
