My favorite is Oolong & Constant Comment. I do add a stevia packet and sometimes a shot of vanilla coffee creamer.

How about you?

I just add honey. I've never tried milk or creamer. Maybe I should.

If it is English breakfast tea I will add milk and sugar.

If it is a fruit or green tea I usually don't add anything, maybe a little sugar. Definitely no milk.

Usually nothing. Once in a while I will add a bit of honey, but usually nothing. I bet flavored creamers would be good in some teas though. I might try that.

Black tea = milk.
Herbal tea = hot water and that's it.

For black teas, I add milk -- but skim only! If it's not skim, I'd rather have the tea with nothing. I HATE that oily/fatty taste that any other milk adds to tea.

No sugar.

If it's green tea, then honey or sweetener of some kind (not fussy).

If herbal, usually nothing. Maybe a sweetener.

Milk and sugar. I don't usually drink flavored or herbal teas, but if I do I'll usually add a little bit of sugar but no milk.

I usually add nothing to hot or iced tea. But when I am feeling sick, I like a little honey and lemon in my hot tea.

Nothing....I drink my tea naked. (My tea's naked...not me.)

I usually drink my tea naked too and it is not unknown for me to be naked whilst drinking naked tea if I am rushing on a morning!

If I was taking afternoon tea with all the trimmings (sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and cakes) then I would of course have a dash of milk in my black tea - otherwise no additives

When I was little our neighbor came down every evening and we all sat and had tea and talked. I had mine then with a lot of milk and sugar.

Now I use two sweet n lows and a dash of milk.

Black teas are my favorite... Green tea with jasmine is good... I do like lots of herbal teas, but not usually the fruity ones. I prefer chamomile... I usually use a level teaspoon or sugar or some honey in my tea. SOMETIMES lemon. I occasionally add skim milk to my black tea (especially chai). I never put milk in green or herbal teas.

My favorite teas are spicy ginger, cardamon cinnamon and vanilla chai. The first two get just a bit of sugar or honey; the chai gets a bit of sugar and a splash of cream. Yummy!
