Best milk alternative for tea:
Don’t worry if you’re lactose intolerant or a vegan; you can still enjoy a milky beverage. You only need to grab a cookie to get started.
1. Rice milk
With tea, rice milk is a winner. You might need to use more of it than you would generally use in tea because it is pretty thin. It pairs nicely with tea because of its somewhat sweeter flavor.

- Protein: 0.3g
- Fibre: 0.3g
Since rice milk is a dairy substitute that is free of soy and nuts, it is becoming more and more well-liked among those who have lactose intolerance and allergies.
2. Almond milk
Another deserving candidate for tea. Based on the brand you select, it has fewer calories than other plant-based milks like soy. Since almond milk does not exactly produce the same color as other milks, it may be suited people who want a stronger tea.
Per 100ml original almond milk:
- Calories: 24
- Protein: 0.5g
- Fibre: 0.2g
3. Oat milk
Oat milk is ideal for tea since it has a mild oat flavor and is much thicker and creamier than other plant-based milks.
- Calories: 45
- Protein: 1g
- Fibre: 0.8g
4. Pea milk
The newest milk substitute on the market is pea milk. Yellow split peas, which are naturally rich in iron and fiber, are used to make pea milk. You’ll be relieved to learn that it is not green as you would have assumed. Instead, it has a creamy hue similar to that of most milk substitutes.
The details of pea milk include:
- 8g of protein per glass – 8x more protein than almond milk
- Twice the calcium of cow’s milk
- 40% less sugar than cow’s milk
- Free from dairy, nuts and soy
- High in iron and fibre and low in saturated fat
It seems like an all-around winner.
