No way. My tea is only honey and lemon (and a shot of whiskey if it's bed time) simply because the only time I'm willing to drink hot tea is when I'm sick and then it's for my throat.

My mom said my grandmother did. It never sounded good to me. I might try it some day. I like sugar in mine (hot or iced), but I use [store brand] Splenda now. Okay, I cheat and use sugar sometimes too, but I'm trying to be good! Around here everyone drinks iced tea. I only know one person here who drinks hot tea and she is from California, as I am. They look at us a little funny if we mention hot tea.

Negative. No milk for me, GB. It's funny, because your story (and question) are very similar to my own.

Have thought about but have not tried.

The tea that I drink, though, would not benefit from it I don't think. I am a Japanese Green drinker ( genmaicha, etc)

I had to answer no to this, also, but I only drink iced tea.....
I would think putting milk in tea would parallel putting it in coffee... to soften the taste a bit. When I was a kid I had hot tea and always had milk with it.

No Milk, no Sugar. Plain straight up here. Even Chai I drink straight. In College when I worked in the cafeteria the iced tea dispenser was on the serving line. The sugar was on the tables and the spoons were way out by the door and I was too lazy to take the steps to sugar the tea. During cleanup the milk machine was locked so I never got into the habit of adulterating my tea. Same with coffee.

Good thing too as in later life I discovered that milk and I are mutually exclusive. No bad habits to break there.

Depends on the type of tea. If it's herbal or green tea then no. If it is orange pekoe then yes.

I adore tea, but only a bit of honey or raw sugar and maybe citrus with the black varietals. Strangely enough, I prefer my coffee very light, go figure!
