I've been drinking iced tea with cream or milk in it instead of lemon since I was a kid.
Waitresses always give me an odd look, say they've never heard of that before.
Does anyone else, anywhere, drink tea this way?

I bet you'd love Thai Iced Tea (I don't, it's waaaaaaaaaay too sweet).

Thai Iced Tea

Other than in Asian restaurants, I've never seen iced tea served with milk.

Yep, it is Asian style tea, called sometimes a Bubble Tea. Not very popular in US, but you can get it in Chinatown and some of the Oriental Restaurants.
I drink hot black tea with milk, and sometimes have "leftover" that is cold. I do drink iced black tea with milk and tapioca when I have a chance. It has a very pleasant taste

I just learned about this last month. My 19-year-old goddaughter visited me from Arizona. She's a Japanese scholar and recently lived in Japan for 12 weeks. When she was visiting me, we made bubble tea, and it was actually delicious. It was approximately equal parts of skim milk and tea. (Skim was all I had in the house.) We did not sweeten it. I loved it, and have made it a few times since then. Very refreshing!

No way! Strong, sweet, iced tea for me. I love lemons but don't really care for them in my tea! I'm shocked so many drink tea flavored water with no sugar! Yuk!
