    Nope I just don't like the taste with out milk, if it was only to cool it down I would just leave it longer before drinking.

    Not quite.

    But when I want to cool Green tea down, I just put some cold tap water in. I felt the need to share that.

    If you wanted it cold you'd just put some water in it!
    I like the creaminess of it although Id imagine black tea would be really refreshing.

    Tea without milk is like a scone without jam and cream, utterly perverse surely?

    The sugar in the milk makes the tea taste less bitter, so no, it isn't just to cool it down.

    I only put milk in to cool it down. If I'm making the tea myself, I'd get the mug, put the teabag in, add hot water, but leave a bit of space, and then add cold water, stir, and take the teabag out.
