Teas to be taken with milk

Some teas are better with milk. Breakfast teas are among those that are better with milk. Other teas are better plain or with lemon.

English breakfast tea

"Twinings English Breakfast Tea was originally blended to complement the traditional, hearty English breakfast, from which its name derives. Their refreshing and invigorating flavor makes English breakfast one of the most popular black teas to drink at any time or occasion -- not just for breakfast. . . . English breakfast tea is a rich and satisfying robust tea, traditionally blended with Kenyan and Assam black teas."

Irish breakfast tea

Irish Breakfast Tea, with its robust flavor, is usually enjoyed only in the morning (except for the Irish who drink it all day). Usually it is blended with an Assam tea base.

Teas to be taken with or without milk

Twinings Prince of Wales Tea

Twinings Prince of Wales Tea is a blend of black teas from China. I keep some tea bags of it at the office, because it tastes good with or without milk, and with or without sugar. It is even OK with powedered non-dairy creamer.

Chai tea

Chai tea is a blend of black teas and spices. Adding milk and honey are options.

Tea to be taken with lemon

Darjeeling is a black tea from India that one may enjoy in the afternoon with lemon. One could conceivably add milk instead of lemon if one preferred.

Tea to be taken plain

Green tea is best drunk without adding anything to it, in my opinion. One could conceivably add lemon or honey or both. I like to drink green tea in the late afternoon, but I prefer black teas earlier in the day. Green tea is said to have certain health benefits.
