Do You Add Milk To Your Tea?

I have tried this many times, and it just squicks me out, but it works well in coffee. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, or maybe it’s because American’s don’t know jack about tea. What about you all?

I usually add lemon or honey, but I’ve never heard about adding milk to tea. :smile: What does it taste like?

It tastes like diluted milk

Only if you add too much. In the UK most people add milk to tea unless it is herbal tea.

Here in Pakistan, our tea isn’t complete if we haven’t added the milk :wink:

Maybe my tea just isn’t strong enough?

Milk, one sugar, couple of digestive biscuits - heaven! :slightly_smiling_face:

Agree with that except for the sugar. Also, do you dunk your biscuits?

Needs to be what we call ‘builders’ tea’ otherwise it is too weak with milk and just tastes nothingy.

You can use more than one tea bag at a time…:slightly_smiling_face:

My tea is pretty strong compared to most Americans. But I guess tea just doesn’t have the strength in flavor that coffee has.

I use those family-sized tea bags and maake my tea in bulk using about 5-6 of them in a pitcher.

Probably the most British sentence I’ve ever read on the Fiverr forum! :uk:

Maybe I’m just weird because I like my tea cold and sweet (I’m southern, sue me)

I add milk to coffee. I don’t take team but I am a coffee person. More coffee less sugar. Combine this with workouts and you’ve got great abs.

I only drink plant milk, as it is my way to get the calcium in my diet I don’t get otherwise because I’d rather not eat a couple of cups of greens a day. This is why I use it with coffee. I added some to my tea just now, and it is OK, but it’s just… not the same. Then again, I don’t really like coffee, I just use it as a way to get caffeine.

Maybe I’ll drink more tea with plant milk from now on. Idk, I’m considering it. Less coffee, more strong tea… with splenda

I’m Chinese, and milk in tea is blasphemy. You gotta enjoy tea the way it’s made to be enjoyed–bitter and aromatic! :tea:

I think that is different tea though. Would never dream of putting milk in Chinese tea.

That is true. Chinese tea is usually loose leaf, and I feel like it’s generally stronger. I’m not a huge fan of Western tea though, so I’m not the expert here. Just imagining milk in tea makes me feel al little weird though, probably just out of habit.

Today I am drinking Tick-Tock Roobois tea. I like it because it is not to acidic. I make it strong, two tea bags to a mug. Today I am drinking it straight but I have been known to sweeten it with agave or honey and put in a wee bit of half and half. Milk is too watery.

We mostly drink herbal teas, and adding milk to them just wouldn’t make sense.

I have tried tea with milk once or twice (strong black tea, to be more specific), but I prefer my tea without milk. Or sugar.
