I don't really have a distinctive morning tea. Usually, when I'm at
work, I start going on my green tea of the day. I usually pick
something that is good for multiple infusions, as it is a bit of a
hassle to change out the tea leaves while at work.
I've been known to have herbal tea in the morning, too, based on how
On another note, I - too - have given up drinking cow's milk. I've
been drinking soy milk for a while since I can get it to cheap, but I
prefer almond milk. I also bought rice milk for the first time the
other day so I could try it out (it is a bit cheaper than almond
What sort of teas have you found that mix well with the non-dairy
milks? Also, what sort of brands and types of milks are you using? I
prefer to use the unsweetened and non-flavored varities, but if a
certain flavor brings out the taste, I'm willing to try it.

Chicago tends to be sub freeing for a vast majority of the semester. I
have my own apartment so now I get up much earlier and eat some
breakfast before classes.
So now I'm curious as to your favorite morning tea mixtures, whether
its just a strong cup of irish breakfast, or plain old assam, a cup of
white or green or maté?
What do you like to drink in the morning whether it be for a pick me
up or just to relax?
I do not drink milk as part of my vegetarian diet, so any milk would
be substituted with soy milk or rice milk or almond milk, and at that
most likely the vanilla flavor.
I currently have a good stock of maté, ceylon black tea, taiwan peach
oolong, gunpowder green, silver needle white, and a little bit of
I drink Silk vanilla soy milk, because its available everywhere near
my apartment, and I can drink it by the glass without tea, something I
can't do with regular milk.
that being said, it doesn't compare to regular milk mixed into tea. It
is not bad at all, it's quite good, just not the same as milk and tea.
no non dairy will ever compare to the time I spent in Ireland where
every morning there was pot after pot of strong black tea and milk
from the animals outside.
I have been drinking a few cup of maté each morning with a bit of
sugar and vanilla soymilk, though I'm not sure the vanilla adds
anything to the mix, I'm sure plain would work fine. If you pour the
mixture into a clear glass and leave it sit for an hour or 2 you will
find an interesting color.
I sometimes drink the ceylon in the morning, however it is going stale
and is getting a little bitter and is requiring more and more
additives. I usually leave my green and white for at night as I go to
bed earlier than normal now due to class scheduling.
If anyone else has info on non dairy additives and the best mixture, I
would love to hear them
