This is for our primarily tea-drinking KPers-I love tea. It is my caffeine source. I brew loose tea-Earl Grey is the favorite-or should I say favourite, but English breakfast is a close second. My tea monger-we have a shop here that sells coffee and teas-is appalled that I put a splash of milk (just enough to color it) in my tea. He says that should not be done-plain or with lemon only. I still get the lovely tea taste, but it's not as tannic with the milk. Am I breaking some MAJOR tea rule? Thanks for any input (not that it will change my habit).
