I prefer a nice shot of whiskey.

If you want to mix it in the tea, a good clean vodka. Earl Grey Tea is too good to muddy with strong tasting liqueurs.

Vodka for sure, it even comes in tea flavored these days.

@ETpro In theory, I agree with you. In practice, vodka and I aren’t on good terms.

I’d try Baileys.

Irish whiskey, or Scotch as you prefer

If you were to ask my Earl Grey drinking British bloke, the response would be to put nothing in the tea. He might be willing to have a snifter of cognac or a glass of port on the side. And trust me…he is not as stuffy as it sounds. He just feels that Earl Grey is fragrant and tasty enough to stand on its own.

@Pied_Pfeffer And I would agree with him on every single point, except the one in which he thinks I’m drinking tea and not writing a massive paper. So, booze.

I don’t drink much tea but I love lemon in it when I do and I might opt for a lemon flavored vodka.

Nothing. It’s perfect.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

something pretty oak-ey could stand up to black tea, heavy on the malt too. but a lot of combinations with black tea would just be a waste of both.

@MyNewtBoobs In that case, I agree with @seazen_, Tea, Earl Grey, hot. Now where did I put that portable replicator?

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@MyNewtBoobs My apology. I don’t get it.

I go with scotch, or hard apple cider.
