    Ghee in tea

    Primal Fuel
    I made a quick blend of Darjeeling tea with yerba mate and decided to add some grass fed ghee to it. A long time ago I did this with regular butter and didn't mind the taste, but never did it again as the solids rose to the top and kind of bothered me.

    I really enjoyed the ghee though! I only added a little bit, and the tea smelled buttery but the flavor didn't really change and since there were no solids it blended into the tea quite nicely.

    I don't suppose this would change any of the properties of the ghee right? since it's meant for cooking I assume raising its temperature should do very little if anything to the nutritional profile, but does anybody know? I'm looking to start using it in place of coconut oil, since I'm not always in the mood for that, and I don't always get enough fat in my meals.

    Correct. It wouldn't change the nutrition profile.

    Thanks. I emailed the company also and they said only at very high (frying) temps would you run into loss of nutrients. So much for super healthy deep-fried American "wayngz"

    It's heavenly in tea though, I strongly encourage everyone to try it if you've already gone the coconut oil route.

    Chai spiced rooibos tea + 1tbsp raw butter = heaven in a cup.

    I found a company that will deliver me raw dairy but said it should only last about a week and so I'm not sure if I'll order yet, but will definitely do this if I do! I have an African red rooibos which is REALLY good with some heavy cream.

    I started getting teas to stop drinking coffee, I'm on my way to becoming a tea snob. I didn't even really drink so much coffee, but tea is so much more interesting.

    Raw dairy can easily be frozen as well.

    Tibet/Southwestern China has been wise to butter tea for ages!

    Butter tea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Because living in cold, snowy mountains is hard work, yo.

    I've always meant to try it. Of course, they use yak butter...which may be a bit difficult for your average American to acquire. :3

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Yeah, I just tried a search for yak butter. I found someone willing to sell me a whole yak but not any yak butter.

    weight, if we're talking unsalted ghee or butter, isn't that really the same thing as adding cream? does it come out differently?
