Definately milk in hot black tea, (not fussy, Liptons or Sams Club is fine for me. I don't like PG Tips, which makes me a traitor to my own country LOL!), Lady Grey or Earl Grey. No milk in herbal teas. Tea is ALWAYS served hot. Never, ever give cold tea to a Brit. We will pass out with horror LOL!

I would put it in my regular black tea everyday at work, but I'm cheap and don't like to spend nearly a dollar for a little school-sized box of milk.

Green tea with toasted rice and a splash of honey is my all time favorite.

I'll add a dash of soy or cream, whichever I have on hand, to most other kinds though.

I'm not much of an herbal tea drinker, not sure why.

because brewing rocks and twigs isn't really tea?

i don't understand the appeal of chai, but as the 'bug says, vive la difference...

I orginally started drinking tea with Japanese teas, and the tradition is to not put anything in your tea. Especially since many (not all) Japanese teas tend to be delicate (also the tradition comes from Shintoism, but thats another story).

Anyways I find if you have really high quality teas you really dont need anything added, the flavor of the tea rules. Similar to coffee or wine, when you have gourmet quality teas anything you add would mask the subtle flavors.

As far as favorite tea, I've been really into this lately:
and this:

However, I have so much tea around the house it really isnt fair to say any are my favorites.

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.

Drink bucket loads of tea every day & yes always with milk (& a half teaspoon of sugar per teacup - NEVER in a mug). And it must be hot, hot, hot!!!! Love my tea!!!!!! Probably only have about 3 cups of coffee per week compared to about 50 or more cups of tea!!!

Love black tea, Earl Gray and English Breakfast are my favorites but, I drink a lot of Red Rose and Lipton too. Decafe and reg.

Love milk too but, never in the same cup as my tea.

I haven't found a herbal tea that I like yet... lemon is ok, once in a great while but, that's about it.

A good cup of tea...

A good hot cup of regualr black tea is really really hard to find in a restaurant in the US, when I've had the nerve to order, I always seem to get just a splash of tepid water, and an insipid tea bag.
I like mine with milk and 2 tsp. sugar. Prefer tea-cups, but a mug will do and it must be HOT. A really good cup of tea restores the soul (well, mine, anyway). -Sandy
