Yes, you can take Earl Grey tea with milk and honey.
We would advise you to have the milk (warm) in the cup and pour the tea over using a strainer (provided you’ve used loose leaf tea to brew in a teapot). Ideally after you’ve poured the tea, you can add upto a tablespoon (tb) of honey (although we usually take about 1/3 tb of honey to not end up with an overly sweet tea).
Earl Grey tea is most often paired with lemon while milk and honey are usually paired/added to an English Breakfast. Just making this point in case you’re mixing the two up (they are both blends of black teas).

If you’re interested, you can get some really good loose leaf blends from us here:
- The Earl's Pearl [Earl Grey]
- The Mighty Breakfast [English Breakfast]
Note: Always brew your tea using high quality loose leaf teas from Chai & Mighty :)
