Butter Tea Suggestions?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 07, 2013 at 10:22 AM

Any suggestions for teas that go well with butter?

Im using green tea at the mo which is alright but would like to try something else, i dont think fruity tea would go that well, i may try coffee but only like really milky coffee so would have to use a lot of butter

Also, isit ok to pour boiled water directly on the butter or would it be best to add butter after the teas cooled a bit?

Thanks

I don't like those glossy grease drops (Fettaugen) staring up at me - but in Nepal they surely don't have blenders for their butter tea ;-)

YES - The sweet and spicey is absolutely fantastic!

Original Sweet & Spicy is my absolute favorite. I didn't know they had an organic version. I was disappointed when I found the non-organic on sale only to see "artificial flavors" at the top of the list of ingredients! Now I'm on the hunt for the organic. Thanks!

I get an oil slick on top if I don't blend it. If I blend it, it stays blended for a number of hours. I put it in an insulated cup and schlep it work with me.

Kiki - I too was thinking of trying Butter Tea. Is it necessary to blend the tea with the butter (blender), or would simply stirring up the butter in the cup of tea with a fork suffice?

For butter tea I prefer Assam black tea.

I poor the hot tea over the cold butter and mix it with my blender.

You don't have to spend a lot on a stick blender or pour your hot tea/coffee into a blender and then have to wash the blender out. A little battery operated hand frother works just fine--got mine for about $3 at Ikea and "invested" a whole additional dollar in a plastic toothbrush case to store it in so it doesn't get mashed in the drawer.

Yerba Mate. Great taste, good kick, and tastes excellent with butter.

I like rooibos and cinnamon teas. Orange spice is good. Mint was not. I steep the bags in boiled water for a few minutes and add it directly to the blender, still piping hot. Blending cools it just enough to be drinkable immediately without taking off several layers from my tongue! I use unsalted butter straight from the fridge.

Any tea that you could drink with milk should taste good. Maybe an English breakfast tea of chi tea.

Cinnamon tea and ginger tea work too!

I let my tea steep for a little bit, then add the butter. I don't think it matters though!

When I introduced butter tea, I used pu'erh, assam, strong darjeeling, honeybush and rooibos with tasty results.

And then my weight loss stalled even adjusting for the extra calories, so I promptly abandoned the experiment.
