I like both soy and almond milk in tea (both unsweetened) - but neither tastes like cow's milk, so your tea will definitely taste different.

Try both and see what you think - it's a very individual taste. If you are quite picky, then I would warn you you are unlikely to replicate your usual brew with anything other than skimmed milk.

I have recently gone dairy free. I use the Alpro soya milk. I prefer the light version of it (I am not keen on milk and only ever had skimmed milk in tea and coffee) but it is harder to get hold off, and only comes in the litre boxes. The Alpro orginal also comes is 250ml cartons. You do get used to it - it has a slight after taste, or smell at least. I only use a small amount anyway.

The soya milk is odd in coffee though. I have found that when I add the milk last it goes all flaky looking off top. But if I put the milk in first it is less likely to do so. Or if you warm the milk (or the coffee with me) the flakiness goes. Doesn't happen with tea though.

I didn't have anything in my tea when I was dairy free. My FIL has Oatly, it was my preferred option on cereal and for cooking with too.

I'm dairy free and just gave up anything in tea and coffee, although I will have soya in costa/Starbucks or somewhere. I have tried oatly (good with porridge/oat cereal) now have soya milk on cereal, the best one I have found is asda smart price lonlife unsweetened soya milk, isnt strong tasting and is dead creamy. I had found that it's the same in all the supermarkets, cheap as chips soya milk is nicer than expensive
Alpro etc which can taste too soyay!
