Milk or no milk?

Many teas taste absolutely delicious with milk, particularly stronger teas such as Assam, where the milk tempers the strong flavour. Generally speaking, the lighter the tea, the less likely it is that it requires milk. Oolong, green, white and yellow teas, as well as aromatic and floral teas should be drunk straight (without milk), so that it does not spoil the delicate flavour. Very light teas such as Darjeelings can easily be overwhelmed by milk. If you are not use to drinking your tea “black”, do try it – you will be most surprised by the difference.

Sloane Tea Company’s Heavenly Cream and Golden Assam are particularly creamy and delicious when taken with milk, and may soon become one of your favourites.
