Are you drink tea with milk?

These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

Milk and sugar seem to overwhelm any green tea flavor. I prefer to drink green tea straight, but black tea is good with milk.

yeah, I totally agree.
I like add some milk into my Lapsang Souchong. What about you?

Ack! No! No! No! No milk! Blech! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Well, maybe with matcha and chai, but otherwise no. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking with it.

Until March I would have said never but then I went to India. Strong Indian tea was just right with milk and sugar. I know I overdid it because I spent several. nights sleepless from the caffeine. Back at home my Yancha and Japanese greens don’t need milk or sugar and I don’t miss that style of tea drinking.

Actually now that you mention India, I have had masala chai with some kind of milk in it. Overall, not my cuppa, but it was ... culturally interesting.

Hello,
I don't really drink tea with milk.
I don't really add anything to tea usually, I like drinking it straight up. Earl grey is an exception - I like to brew it by steeping some earl grey in a Gaiwan, then putting a splash of vanilla in my teacup, pouring the earl grey on top of it, and topping it with frothed milk.

You could always try a Jin Xuan tea for the milkyness.
