my morning coffee substitute

I can't drink coffee in the morning. The caffeine makes me jittery (even decaf!) and upsets my stomach. I've always been a big hot tea drinker and when I miss the taste of coffee I make a tea latte. 
 Vanilla chai and creamer tastes totally like starbucks and gives me my 'coffee' fix. I'm interested to hear, do you drink coffee every morning? Who is a tea drinker?

  1. I am definitely not a coffee person, I have tried to be, but like you, I just can't stomach it. I like to drink tea in the winter, but for some reason certain herbs can give me headaches/make me nauseous...I know so weird, but apparently that's actually a thing. I mostly just like drinking chocolate almond milk with a teaspoon of chia seeds and truvia. Definitely lacks the caffeine but I like it enough to get out of bed ;)

  2. I used to be a coffee ADDICT! Especially when I worked in a coffee shop for years! A few months ago i started feeling sick all the time and the doc told me to lay off the caffeine- so now i'm a total decaf green tea drinker. I totally miss the taste/experience of coffee- mainly on chilly mornings- I might have to try your chai combo@!

  3. I love chai tea lattes! I get one from the coffee shop on my street, but I want to start making them myself!

  4. I love tea and I love coffee. I choose which one I'm having right at the spot. But during summer I usually drink hot tea and iced tea much more than coffee.

  5. I am a coffee drinker during the week -- but not by choice. I am not a fan of the taste of coffee at all, but it is the ONLY thing that will wake me up at work. By choice, I am totally a tea drinker. Chai Lattes and Green tea lattes are such a treat.

  6. I'm such a coffee person! But it's all for the taste, not the caffeine. It's not that I NEED it, just enjoy it! And it's become such a huge part of my morning routine on the days that I miss it, I feel off!

  8. I am such a teaholic :) I usually make a huge pot of green tea and it's finished by the end of the day :)

  10. I'm a lifelong tea drinker - but lately I've been craving a cappuccino in the morning (despite - or perhaps because of - the jitters!). I'm trying to go back to my tea habit though, i think it's just gentler on my system.
