Not a big tea drinker (or coffee for that matter either) but grew up having milk in my tea when I had it. Now I have to have my tea black, sweet, strong and hot. Like Caine, green tea hot and plain.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I have been drinking tea with milk and sugar since I was about 5 years old. I start every day with a cup of English breakfast tea with milk and 2 lumps of sugar. I will occasionally drink herbal tea with honey (no milk).

Certain teas blend quite nicely with milk, while others won't. I have a wonderful blueberry white blend that couldn't possibly hold up to milk. The flavours are too subtle. Black teas, on the other hand, are perfect with milk.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

If we are talking tea as in the everyday "Rosie Lee" drink we have over here in England then yes absolutley, I love strong tea, but milky, I take half a teaspoon of sugar too! However if we are talking herbal teas then no.

Sometimes I use milk/cream in regular black tea, but all others just get a squeeze of lemon & sometimes a little honey.

My daughter likes a splash of milk in her chamomile tea. It's quite good.

If one is English or Canadian, I would certainly say "yes!!!".....in fact, the correct way of doing it, after your tea has steeped for minutes in the teapot, put the milk in your cup first, then pour your tea. It's always lovely of course, to have it in a real china cup!!!

Like so many others before me, depend on what type of tea I am drinking. Some yes, some no.

Nope, no milk. Most times in fact I don't add anything to the tea if it is served hot. Cold tea I add sugar and lemon to. Also love sweet tea.
The MIL is British, and I don't think we ever saw eye to eye on tea. This also reminds me of the 'Who wants to be a Princess' series where they all 'flunked' Tea Making 101, and then after being taught had to serve it to real Royalty. They all did miserably, and one Prince commented about having tea leaves in his teeth now. Pretty funny stuff I thought.
