Nomadic herders in Tibet and Bhutan have been boiling Pu-erh in Yak butter, milk and/or salt for centuries. On a whim, we tried preparing this amazing blend in milk and sugar, in a similar manner to our award-winning Rishi Masala Chai. We were astounded by the resulting flavors of this interesting new Chai; its deep vanilla hit, big body and strong tea taste and color are perfectly accented by cinnamon and sweetness.
