Greetings from South Carolina. Tea and Milk recommendations?

Postby befloyd » Jan 12th, '09, 01:47

I am new to this tea experience and have fallen in love with it! I keep hearing about tea and milk together and was wondering what you guys would recommend? Any good tea and milk suggestions?

Welcome :D

Can't help you with the tea and milk question, but I'm sure someone here can.

I used to put milk in a variety of stronger black teas, but have not done so for a few months... because I got more interested in savoring the nuances of unsweetened teas, and the milk camoflauges much of this. There are a few flavored black dessert teas I might splash some milk in... but for now, I really only use milk in chai tea.

There's no right or wrong... experiment and see what you like. If you have something like a good breakfast blend (I like Irish Breakfast), that might be a good one to experiment with in the unflavored arena.

Hi and welcome.
I have tried it, but I like to experience the true flavor of the tea.
It is a popular tradition by the English with stronger blacks.
I wouldn't recommend to go that route.

I put a splash of skim milk in most of my strong black teas...and I use sugar, too. :lol: I like it that way, wakes me up in the mornings!
