Tea with milk

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Hope you are well. 

 

Please give me some information which is good for health 

 

Tea with milk and sugar or

Tea without milk and sugar

Loaded question really. There are arguments for either way but your whole diet enters into it really. There are arguments against milk, arguments against sugar and benefits to either as well. Plus arguments for and against tea itself.

 

The question needs a whole lot more context to really be meaningfully asked and answered.

I drink mine without milk or sugar. I gave up sugary beverages years ago.

I think there are proven antioxidant benefits to tea regardless of additives. I believe there is also evidence that caffeine in small daily amounts has a benefit. If we're going to stick sugar in our tea though, I'd think a splash of whiskey would be as helpful or more as any other form, since small amounts of alcohol per day also show health benefits :D

It's difficult to get back to milk and sugar after trying a variety of Chinese teas.

Agree that more context is required as milk may or may not be bad for your health depending on any allergies or intolerances you may have. Lots of people swear that all dairy is bad but personally I have never found it problematic and I'm sure a splash of milk in your tea is fine, barring any intolerances as mentioned.

 

As for tea without milk, I find it strange without milk but would imagine that you get used to it.

 

As for sugar, I'd say no sugar - there are plenty of hidden sugars in most foods so you don't need to add it to anything, IMO! But then again, a spoonful in a cup of tea once a day is probably fine!

 

If you are looking for a generally healthy hot drink, how about trying green tea, or even green coffee?
