Which non-dairy milk for tea?

I'm aiming to eliminate dairy from my diet and have no problem using nut/oat milks for breakfast and in sauces, but I'm really struggling to find a nice milk to use in my tea.

I like my tea really milky but I'm finding the high water content in the plant milks means it's way too strong or I have to put so much in to get the taste milky enough that it's cold.

Help me to find my tea bag's new best friend smile - what do you use to keep the milky taste?

For me it is alpro unsweetened long life soya but I have been vegan for a very long time and soya milk was the only option back then (it was vile too, much nicer now!)

Alpro almond milk and don't make the tea as strong.

Cashew milk makes gorgeous hot chocolate brew

To be fair, I have my tea milky AND weak, the tea bag just has a quick dip in the water to say "hi" before being whipped out again. My husband says I drink hot watery milk that's a bit beige grin.
I don't think I've ever noticed cashew milk, but i like the sound of that because the nuts are so creamy!

Unsweetened soya for me too, any brand, I think it needs more than cows milk though

Oatley barista milk - best vegan milk I've ever tasted. We use it for everything now! I love the whole range.

This is not cheap, but it's lovely.

Oat milk was the best I found. To be honest none of them were great. I ended up training myself to like it black.

Agree with Oatly, I'm not even trying to cut out dairy but drink my tea with it because I like the taste.

Definitely Oatley Fomable (barista). Have tried them all and it's definitely the best in tea.

I never found one I liked and ended up drinking it black but as you like milky tea I'm not sure that would work for you!

I like unsweetened soya, followed by unsweetened almond for tea. Oatley barista is good for foaming in aerocinno for coffee.
