Ideally I'd still like the caffeine, but I don't like milk. Can anyone recommend any teas which taste nice without milk?
Thanks

Hi. I've drunk black tea for about 20 years. Met h who unusually did too. Now I couldn't countenance normal tea.

I like Darjeeling. Just dipped in so it goes medium amber. You won't go back

Earl Grey is lovely without milk. I think normal tea has too much tannin to drink black as it just tastes bitter.

Lady Grey.

Another vote for lady grey. The only downside is asking for it when out at cafes/restaurants. There's no way of doing it without sounding like hyacinth bucket.

Green tea with lemon, mint or jasmine.

Green tea has caffeine, but just let it brew for a few seconds as it does get bitter quickly. The Clipper brand is nice.

brew

I have always drank tea without milk. I just drink PG Tips and ordinary English breakfast type. Sometimes with tea leaves when visiting Turkish relatives who all drink it black.

Rooibos is lovely without milk, it's caff-free though, so more of an evening drink?

Thanks! Some excellent suggestions. I look forward to trying all these!
