However you probably wouldn't want lemon in your tea and milk or cream too. I'm pretty sure that would taste bad!

I like Thai (iced) tea. Most versions of that have a dairy product. (Or many versions, I don't want to argue about it.) I'm pretty sure Thai tea rarely or never has lemon in it.
I can't tell you what lemon and milk in your tea tastes like, but it looks yucky. As a kid, I was used to drinking hot tea with milk and sugar. This was not something any of my friends drank. I remember going to a restaurant with my Girl Sprout troop. I ordered tea. They brought lemon and milk. I didn't think about it; I just added both. Oh boy did I feel silly when I saw it. D'oh!

Oh wow all these negative responses to lemon in tea! Personally I love the bitterness of the lemon added to black tea. I grew up on it with at least a cup once a day. But then again we hall have our own different taste. But face it, lemon is a bitter fruit no matter what, if you don't want your tea to have that bitterness then don't add the lemon, and defiantly not the pill. But the pill does make a lovely snack, lemon is my favorite fruit.

I agree with agreeing! Any type of acid will make dairy curdle a bit. Thats how indians make paneer cheese and sour cream. And when you have instant teas in powder form don't EVER add cream or milk! It will curdle instantly. I'm I'm very, very low on money then I would but power but never would I dare add dairy.

I don't find lemon bitter, sour most definitely. I'll eat a lemon but want it no where near my tea. I don't order iced tea in restaurants, because they insist on adding lemon, even when you ask them not to. Just taking it out/off the glass does not count.

oppps! Ah your right, even after all these years my english is still bad. I meant the peel was bitter if left in the tea and that a lemon is wonderfully sour. But people have their own taste. I never want to push mine on others and say mines is right. I just thought this was an interesting post and I wanted to reply.

I was wondering where all that "lemon is bitter" was coming from. As PF wrote, it's wonderfully sour. Just don't add the peel to your tea. Unless you get organic lemons or live in lemon country, the peels are dyed with dyes that aren't allowed in food.
