    I either drink it plain, or throw in a splash of milk. If it is iced tea I always go plain.

    @AB Bride:  Oh this one is too comlicated since it really depends on what tea I’m drinking!

    Herbal tea: honey, maybe lemon

    Cinnamon or fruit teas: raw sugar

    Black/breakfast teas: cream & sugar

    In hot tea I’ll add a splash of milk, maaaaybe a tiny bit of honey or sugar if I think it needs it. At work I just drink tea straight. For ice tea my family likes to add lemonade. I think a common one for hot tea is lemon slices which you are missing.

    In orange pekoe or breakfast teas, I put milk (or cream if that’s all that’s available).

    In herbal teas, I don’t put anything.

    NEVER sugar in my tea.  Yuck.

    Herbal tea, I drink plain,

    Sometimes I add a tiny bit of honey or sweetener to black tea, unless I’m sick and then it’s a lot more honey.

    It depends on the tea.

    Green/Herbal/Chrysanthemum/Oolong/Jasmine/Earl Grey = straight

    Orange Pekoe/English Breakfast = sometimes cream and sugar, sometimes condensed milk (yum!)

    @AB Bride:  I selected sweetner, lemon, and honey but I usually use one or the other, not all three in the same cup lol. It just depends what type of tea it is. For green tea I like stevia (or leave it plain), black tea I like lemon or sometimes almond milk, and I add honey to my root or loose leaf teas like raspberry tea, dandelion, roibous (sp?)
