What's you favorite tea to have with milk?

83 Replies

Chai Massala is the only tea base that I regularly use milk and honey (or any sweetener) with, outside of some agave syrup in my summer herbal iced teas. Usually, outside of this if I do not like a tea plain, no additions, I do not keep it around for long. This goes for flavored or unflavored teas.

Wiki disagrees again! List now puts Paraguay and Uruguay well ahead. Maybe not all camelia sinensis?…might include mate tea and other herbal teas? Note rooibos or redbush tea drunk in South Africa and Netherlands is not true tea but a different species to sinensis. I like that too simmered in a pan for 5 minutes and served with milk. I can see you wincing Sandra!
