Do you put milk in your tea?

There seems to be two schools of thought. either you put milk in your tea or you do not. I think I was proabably at least 20 years old before I ever saw or heard of anyone putting milk in theirs. I found it very odd, but now I relalize maybe I was the odd one. I still have not even tried it myself (I am not a big milk fan).

Depends on the type of tea of course.

But when I'm having a stock-standard cup of black tea then milk will be making an appearance.

No, I don't. But then again, I don't really drink tea.

I do not drink a lot of tea, I am a coffee addict, but I do enjoy lemon-ginger (from Stash), cardomom-cinnamon (from Republic of Tea) and occasionally Green in which I put a little honey and lemon, and black tea seasoned with Italian Orange syrup and lemonade. Milk would not make these mixes pleasant.

I use milk sometimes, but only in black tea. I like it best with some honey mixed in as well. I got hooked on this one summer when we seemed to have thunderstorms late at night several times a week. Have no idea why! Now I associate tea with milk and honey with a late-night comfort drink.

Definetly in my hot tea. I have to have my 2 cups every morning or I can't function. I'm not into herbal or any fancy teas.....just your plain old Lipton Tea Bags . Add a few tsp. of sugar and a splash of milk and awwwwwwwwwww I can start my morning.
