    Recently I've started drinking my tea without milk. My family think I'm insane.

    So, fellow users, what's your view on the matter??

    Most vulgar, or quite acceptable??

    Acceptable, and if the tea has lemon, quite nice, but I usually have it with milk.

    I should have added that I only drink it without milk if it's a 'good' tea. Tesco own-brand tea....plenty of milk.

    I know, most people drown their tea in milk, but if you try it without, it has a really nice flavour IMO. Better than black coffee, I think. Personal preferences n all that!

    Earl Grey is the only tea I really can't drink...It's like drinking washing up liquid and perfume! :p

    I'll have to try it with milk sometime...what kind of Tea would one put milk in? I'm assuming green or white tea wouldn't be that great with milk :p

    I do enjoy the taste of black tea which is why I've never thought of adding milk. It doesn't really sound very good...then again i'm not a Brit, maybe it's a Brit thing :)

    Same I first started drinking tea with milk and a sugar. But now I don't mind if it has milk or not. I don't even have sugar anymore.

    Once when I was having sugar but had ran out, I tried replacing that sugar with honey cornflakes as it was the only sweet thing I had, not pleasant.

    well it's a brit thing for sure ... personally i prefer adding sugar (not too much)
    tried it once with milk and didn't like it... you simply have to be raised that way to prefer it IMHO

    Normally blended tea (a mixture of different tea leaves) Brands in England include Tetley and Yorkshire Tea to name but a few...Not sure what brands you have in the US :p

    One must not add milk to green teas (as far as I'm aware) :p

    Normal.

    I've tried tea with milk before, but it's just too weird for me. I like tea as it is, unadulterated.

    Well, it's becoming increasingly clear that milk in tea is a British thing.

    @ xUKHCx - Your honey cornflakes experiment got me laughing! I would be interested in knowing the thought process immediately before you added them! :D

    I think Tea with milk is disgusting. Tea WITH milk!? That's insane. If you don't like tea by itself, you don't deserve to be drinking it.

    Personally, English Breakfast with milk, no other way. On another note (pun intended):

    Cold Tea Blues / Cowboy Junkies

    If I pour your cup, that is friendship
    If I add your milk, that is manners
    If I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste,
    that is tea

    But if I measure the sugar
    to satisfy your expectant tongue
    then that is love,
    sitting untouched and growing cold

    I'm of the opinion that tea with milk is gross...but if that's what you like, to each his/her own.

    I prefer a little lemon or honey.

    What about lemon and honey, or is that too OTT?
