Green Tea

Does anybody drink their green tea with milk? I haven't tried it that way, but something instinctively tells me that it is not a good way to prepare it. I just got some green chai and I am tempted to try it with mik, as all chai blends I have had in the past have been served with lots of milk.

Responding to my own post :)
There appears to be plenty of discussion of this on the web, available through Google. Some, but not as much concerning green chai, so if anybody has any preferences they want to share, please do.

I have served the Green tea with the milk and it tastes really good. Although not many people have ever tried that because it may seems a little bit odd to them, however, my suggestion is if you would like to try drinking green tea with milk, let's go to the bubble tea store which usually operate by Chinese people, they do mix green tea with milk in an excellent flavour.
Hope it helps. Enjoy.

Thank you, Star. Until yesterday, I had never had green tea with milk. It was good. I added 1% milk and went a little easier on the milk than I do with my red tea. Also, added a packet of sucralose to the mix - enjoyed the combo. Sucalose, like nutrasweet does add a slight aftertaste, which is unfortunate, but the tea flavor nevertheless came through fine.
I haven't tried the green chai yet - probably will treat it the same as other chai I have had by adding substantial milk and sweetener to the brew.

I've never heard of the Dairy Isles. I've heard of the Canary Isles, Hawaiian Isles, and many others. What ocean would we look closest to finding them? Or is it the Isle of White (Wight)? What a difference an A makes ;-)

Quantity doesn't signify to zealots: "I just nibbled that apple." "But rabbi, it was just a single bacon cheeseburger." "But father, she was just a little girl." [Okay, that last one might go over.] Some behaviors are immoral due to principle rather than result. If, in a new-found tome of Lovecraft, Nyarlathotep is observed taking tea, it is certain to be green with milk and sucralose. But repentance is possible. Take a candle and a feather and search your entire dwelling, kneeling if necessary, for Cremora and sucralose, expunging the vile substances. Use milk only for Cheerios. If you are Pythagorean, forswear beans. Think twice before eating tabuli. It just got cold in Wisconsin. I'm switching to black, so milk is permitted. Thealogically, Rick. > Brother Chappell - > Before you lay your right hand upon my forehead, to exorcise the > demons from my being for mentioning such blasphemy, and then > commanding me to rePENT for my sins, at least allow me to state my > defense: > Um, well, I didn't add *much* milk and sucralose to my green tea.

Wow.

That is my favourite sentence containing both "Nyarlatothep" and "sucralose" ever!

Um, I use soy milk. "Silk" creamer, at least. Not in green tea though :OD

I've tried that stuff. To me it tastes rather sweet. OTOH, regular vanilla or chocolate Silk soymilk is yummy.

Hmm. Come to think of it, the creamer is all I've tried. I will have to pick up some vanilla soymilk tomorrow.
What's the verdict on chocolate Silk with black tea? It seems wrong, and yet...

Well, certainly, adding chocolate Silk to your Keemun Hao-ya A would have to taste marvelous, but the resulting mouthfeel would no doubt be an issue for most persons. :)
