Tibetan Butter Tea

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Boil tea in 4 cups of water for about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from flame.
  3. Remove the tea leaves from the liquid by pouring through a sieve.
  4. Add half-and-half and butter to the strained tea.
  5. Add salt to taste (Tibetans like it very salty).
  6. This will cool the tea, so warm it briefly over a low flame, making sure the tea doesn't boil.
  7. For a frothy tea, pour it back and forth between two containers a few times.
