    Has anyone tried this? I've tried drinking it for three weeks now and I still hate black tea. It has such a bitter aftertase. Has anyone tried using a spoonful of Vanilla shake as milk powder? If so, does it work?

    oh - and I find I'm always left with some lumpy bits at the bottom of the drink but it is worth it

    I have a latte for breakfast and another for supper everyday.

    half a vanilla shake, spoon of coffee and 200ml hot water, whizz with the blender, gorgeous.

    I can't take it in tea as I don't like sweet tea, but I imagine it would be nice.

    I'm not hugely keen on sweet tea but it's gotta be better than black tea, right?

    I don't drink coffee but may have to turn to it.

    I never drank coffee much before, I have always been a teapot.
    But I just can't drink it black.
    It is worth a go.
    I have made coffee muffins with it and am trying coffee ice cream today. Just waiting for the ice cream maker to finish :p

    Have you tried Redbush tea? It's much nicer black than 'normal' black leaf tea. And its full of anti-oxidants and really good for you.

    I can't stand black normal tea either, but I do like very weak Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong, green tea with jasmine and green tea with mint. And like Alibongo, I'm developing a terrible latte habit. It really is nice. Yum!
