Milk second, not that I drink tea, but with tea you need to allow it to steep, and milk prevents that occurring at optimal levels.

Now, if we were talking the one true beverage, coffee, then you would be right, as the milk acts as a temperature buffer, preventing the boiling water from potentially burning the coffee. (at least for instant, for espresso it gets made differently)

Depends on the tea - quality tea should steep in the (pre-scalded) pot, and milk should be added to the cup first.
With Tibetan tea, the rancid yak butter should be added last (along with the salt).

For expresso you need to put in milk first too, so the foamy coffee being poured into the cup makes the top foam layer creamy :D

:think: I can't remember the last time I made a pot of tea for one, Mistycica. It's extra washing up for me and I find it adds little to my enjoyment taste wise. :angel:

I break enough china as it is. :lol:

I bought a beautiful cast iron teapot lately, such an adult thing to do D: It is really pretty though and I get a lot of use out of it.
