Tibetan Butter Tea

Anyone tried it? Any good recipes?

My husband and I went to a local Tibetan Cultural Center on Sunday and I was intrigued by the bowl and pots used to serve Tibetan Butter Tea. All I could parse out was that it is sipped all day long like a broth in Tibet and is a long process to make.

I found this online and I'm intrigued:

Ingredients:
Water
Plain black tea (in bags or loose)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup milk or 1 teaspoon milk powder

Here's the link with history and instructions:

Anyone tried it? I'm going to give it a go some time this week. I'm very curious to see how a savory tea tastes for drinking. I might try a slightly sweet version too to see how I like that.

Thoughts? Advice on past experiences? Know where to find Yak milk? (Kidding on that last one - I know some of you probably DO know where to find it.)
