So, my SO requested I buy this, so I added it to my last Yunnan order. I’m not sure how to feel about this, and she is just sitting over here laughing at my face. I can smell the butter in this just from the dry powder alone, and as soon as I add water, it smells even more buttery and sweet. We share a serving and it pretty much tastes the way it smells—buttery and sweet with a hint of tea in there. I think this is definitely more up her alley than mine, as she liked it, but would have liked a stronger flavor. I may experiment with this a bit more, but I’m not sure having buttery tea will ever not be odd to me!

oooo, i’ve been considering trying this. though, i was thinking of the salty one… :O

I wasn’t sure which one I wanted to get, but she insisted on the sweet one. I know she’ll drink that up, so we may give the salty one a try in the future. It’s a very interesting experience, which is the least I can ask for!

I was excepting something different and exotic with the Yak Butter but it wasn’t much different from the milk teas I was having earlier.
I’m not sure what yak butter tea suppose to taste like, I’ve only had cow and goat butter teas, it don’t really taste much like a butter tea to me, but it does have a buttery smooth kinda mouthfeel.

It has that same little twang that all these instant milky teas have and it’s super creamy and smooth and not too sweet, not quite as sweet as the milk teas.

I didn’t get the salty one, I want to try it now tho :)

I’m so happy you reviewed this. I am really interested in Yak butter teas. I have no idea why, because I don’t eat butter, but I find these fascinating. My boyfriend wants to try these, so they may end up in my house soon anyway!

Excellent note, thanks! I have a box of the salty version that I bought for a Buddhist friend who wants to start making yak butter tea. I figured we could always add sugar but I don’t how much salt to put in. I also ordered a Xiaguan Tibetan Flame mushroom (2007, I think) for my friend to make the real thing, but we are going to use the boxed tea to get some idea of how it should taste first. Your note is helpful. I am not sure if I can take the real yak butter tea. My friend is from India so I am not worried for him so much.

So jealous!

Funny you should mention this. I’d been wanting to try the real salty-and-buttery deal for a long time, so my beloved got me a gift certificate to the Rangzen Tibetan (http://www.rangzenrestaurant.com/) restaurant near us in Cambridge, Mass. First of all, the food was absolutely terrific. Even my kids were raving about it. The tea? Well, what can I say? Poecha tastes exactly as described on the menu “Traditional Tibetian [sic] tea blended with butter, milk and lightly salted.” For those of us accustomed to unadorned tea, the addition of butter and salt is, well, startling. It wasn’t bad tea, but I’d say it’s definitely an acquired taste that I have not yet acquired. I am absolutely thrilled, however, that I got to check that one off my tea life list. as I told my kids, it’s a new experience, and one should never pass up an opportunity to try something new.

Yak, buffalo are kinda like cows I think

I’ve been tasting Wisconsin butters and bought a log of Amish butter to make the tea.
