Earl Grey and Milk?

These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

I usually drink Earl Grey without milk but sometimes I'll put milk in and a very small amount of vanilla extract.

I had a cup of Earl Grey tea both with and without milk today and it tastes good either way.

I drink earl grey with a spoon of coconut cream and then add in almond milk (need to be dairy free). Otherwise the bergamot flavor can be too overwhelming for me, but then I add the coconut cream/almond milk combo to all my black tea these days since it is easier on my stomach.

I'm another EG and Milk drinker.

Always blue top or full fat from the house cow. I don't consider light blue or green tops to be milk, they're coloured water.


NZ milk grades are:

Red top: pure cream.
Silver/Grey top: full milk with all it's fat and cream, content varies seasonally and is often not available in winter.
(dark) Blue top: standard milk, depending on season some cream/fat is added, other times is skimmed slightly, same milkfat profiles year round, no matter what the cows are providing.
Light Blue top: skim milk
Green top: low fat skim milk for the diet nuts.

WHICH milk you use changes the flavour of the tea...

I definitely enjoy Earl Grey with milk, but without sugar.

If you like tea with a smooth taste, I think milk can take away the bitter taste of tea. I also asked many people who drink tea, they are willing to add milk into tea. I hope you should try and find the best match for youself. :D
