Everybody has their own way of drinking rooibos, whether weak or strong, with milk or without.
Many rooibos lovers enjoy their’s on its own, whilst others swear by a strong brew and a splash of milk, giving a great caffeine free alternative to a traditional everyday black tea.
According to experts, the rule with tea is that there are no rules and that you drink what tastes good to you, but it seems like some people disagree with this.
Last week, things got heated on Twitter when a user called @NkanyeziKubheka tweeted that people who drink Rooibos tea with milk are capable of murder, and that did not sit well with some people.
They believe that milk does go into tea.

If you drink rooibos tea without milk it’s your business,and I drink mine with milk it’s my business so leave me alone. You can’t force people to like things that you like.
