Tea tuesdays: butter up that tea, tibetan-style : the salt : npr and investor David Asprey

The teas are such most of the diet that, until lately "every Tibetan owned a por pa or tea bowl," writes Rupert Faulkner, a writer and senior curator in the Victoria and Albert Museum working in london, in the book Tea East & West. He adds the bowls even snugly squeeze into the pocket from the chupa, a conventional bit of clothing worn by both men and women.

Today it’s more prevalent to determine Tibetans consuming their butter tea from thermoses. It is also a part of Tibetan hospitality to provide visitors a bowl of butter tea, that is a yellow-colored color and it has the consistency of soup. Along with a good host will refilling the bowl towards the brim over and over until it is time for goodbyes — after which a polite guest will drain what remains.

Towards the Western palate, yak butter may taste strange initially, possibly because resilient yak can survive on the meager diet of grasses and shrubs. This will make for any completely different taste compared to sweet butter we are accustomed to, created by corn-given cows. The Heisses describe the yak butter tea as getting an "oily and fatty texture which coated our mouths."

One Westerner, however, was deeply inspired by yak butter tea, a lot he began a business riffing from the idea. Heard about Bulletproof Coffee? It had been "invented" by Plastic Valley entrepreneur and investor David Asprey after he attempted yak butter tea in Tibet. It combines grassfed-butter, oil and occasional right into a breakfast of champions Asprey claims will suppress hunger and provide your mind a lift. (Most are dubious of those claims read Gizmodo’s takedown here.)

Tea Tuesdays is definitely an periodic series going through the science, history, culture and financial aspects of the ancient made beverage.

josnaz1: You do realize Burnie that you simply have a psychological need to "get back" at Islam rather than engage in any activity offline that actually matters…err don't you?

josnaz1: I think he or she said it in rather good English….you must be one of those average Americans to whom he or she (and myself) referred.\n\nAnd, by the way, I'm a (white) American myself, and am rather tired of the stupidity, immorality, obesity, etc. of so many of my fellow citizens.\n\nI guess this is the place where you say, then if you're so unhappy here, why don't you get the f*** out?

josnaz1: Yes, it really is too difficult to understand for the average US citizen, given the intelligence level of the average US citizen.\n\nYour comments were correct–but you forgot that many people in foreign countries also want nothing to do with our immoral, sick culture (and, no, I'm not referring to blue jeans.)

Kyo Shiroma: Why americans think that when the people ALL OVER THE WORLD claims that they want to fight against the "American Imperialism" it has something to do with the american trendy products "made in China" eh? Fight against the US Imperialism means that WE dont want; US Soldiers, political motivated movies,US NGO, US Petrol Companies, IMF, WB, IDB, CIA.Only MUTUAL RESPECT & DIGNITY for relationships and to do business. That's all! It's that really TOO difficult to understand for an average US citizen?!
