As it's mostly Brits who infantilise their beverages with milkiness, I doubt it.

Cafe con leche, café au lait anyone?

Yep.  Coffee with milk, not coffee.  Like bread with engine oil, not bread.  There's a reason for the additional words there.  Go and ask for a café and see what happens to your account.

We Brits tore apart a third of the world in pursuit of tea. Millions were oppressed and slaughtered so we could have a nice cup of tea, with milk and perhaps even sugar. I'm happy to assume we were on to something.

I tried it without milk once, wasn't really my cup of tea.

Tit juice tastes odd to me thesedays. Switching to alternatives was the easiest of the changes I made, did it overnight. Only problem I have is that soya often - but not always - separates from coffee. Anyone know if that's thats the soya or the coffee? (presumably soya as don't recall it with milk). Maybe there's something you can add a dash of to prevent it happening

I've tried a few of the fake milks, and while most of them aren't as nice as the real thing, I found oat milk to be the best. I've got so used to it that it has replaced real milk in my mind as the proper taste, so that when I had some real milk by chance, it seemed weird.

Yeah that soya milk separation thing is weird. It seems like there are a million variables - filter coffee vs instant coffee, the temperature of the milk vs the temperature of the coffee.... okay two variables.

I got quite into making milky latte-type coffees during the first lockdown (because I'm an unrefined blubbering infant) with a milk frother, but I hate the taste/digestive effect of cow's milk, so normally went for soya or oat - soya actually performed better in the heating up/frothing part.

Prefer the taste of oat though, and that's definitely the best when dashed into tea. I gather it's generally thought to be the greener option too.

I settled on Almond Milk because - and correct me if I'm wrong on any of these - Oat Milk has too much sugar, Soya Milk turns me into a woman, and Split Pea Milk tastes like Satan's pre-cum.

Although as per my last post I do generally have a wee soupçon of milk (substitute) in my tea, the thought that some of my ancestors were probably massacred so that this unholy abomination could become a British national institution is pretty grim:

Depends on which version of oat milk you get but yeah generally it does as the oats have been fermented a bit I think. I tend to get the oat milk designed for coffee that has a bit of oil in it to imitate the texture of full fat milk a little better. However if you're just drinking it in tea/coffee your not exactly guzzling it down anyway.

I only use it for cereal and I find Almond Milk works fine for Weetabix and his younger sister Oatibix.
