Butter Tea (stolen from Main Lobby)

This is an interesting, comforting drink..I guess the Tibetan monks drink this alot, but they use Yak butter..

A mug of hot black tea (brewed to taste)
1 tsp. of butter melted in the tea
pinch of salt to taste
milk/half/half/cream to taste

It is really good..and I'm not a salt person, but you do need the salt, to taste, of course.

Since it's "Stolen Tea"

I have to try it.

My mom used to salt her coffee before it was made.
I read recently that salt takes away the bitterness of coffee.
Guess mom knew what she was doing almost 8 decades ago.

I'm anxious to think what our cooks think of this.

Hey, if we add rum, does it taste like Hot Buttered Rum, Carolyn? I love those!

I'm intrigued! I think I'll have to give this a go.

I've also read about some LCers adding coconut oil to their coffee/tea....

Quick and easy experiment coming up!

Yup, LCers do add coconut oil, but this is a totally different experience..

It tastes like a meal..sort of.

My mom did this with coffee when she showed me how to make percaolated coffee. I love the smell of fresh brewed coffee. I don't drink it though.

After my happy experience with putting butter in my tea and reading your post, I put some butter in my coffee this morning. It's not bad at all! I have to keep reheating my coffee to keep it creamy though.

I'll have to try this sometime.

As for salt taking away the bitterness of coffee, I always put a pinch of salt in the coffee grounds when I fill my coffee maker. I heard a long time ago that that is what Cracker Barrel did to their coffee to make it taste so good. Don't know if it's true but I always loved CB coffee so I started doing it and it really does help.
