    Not very caffeinated teas that go well with cream?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm thinking about drinking lots of tea with grassfed butter at night since the same version with coffee calms me down in the morning and fills me up. Anybody have any recommendations on types of tea that aren't very caffeinated that I can drink at night instead? Not sure if herbal would go well with butter, lol.

    Chai, Rooibos, chocolate Rooibos (check out Teavana for their tiramisu tea, that's farking divine), white tea.

    Not sure how it would be with butter, but I find that licorice teas are good with cream.

    definitely rooibos. plain with cream is awesome so with butter would be good i reckon.

    i used to make chai by loosely following this recipe in my vegan days as it has no caffeinated tea in

    Chai! - Recipe Idea: Chandra Chai Moon Tea
    if you ignore the milk, the butter should make it sweet enuf to ditch the honey.

    Republic of Tea has some great varieties. The Dark Chocolate Mate is divine, and I also really like Cardamom Cinnamon and Coconut Hibiscus.

    zhena's fire light chai is one of my favorite teas, especially at night. You can get a pound of it for about $20 on amazon.

    I brew food-grade rose petals as tea. It smells and tastes pretty much just how you would expect and is also anti-inflammatory (good for cramps!). I have not tried it with cream because I'm personally not a fan of cream in tea, but I bet it would be super good (if you're into that).

    Another vote for roiboos. I have a roiboos chai that is fantastic with heavy cream or coconut milk. I should try it buttered - I bet that would be good...

    I love honeybush tea. It's from South Africa, similar to Rooibos, and has a natural sweetness to it. Goes very well with cream. You can get it from Teavana, I believe.
