Is it like butter coffee?

Butter tea was the inspiration for butter coffee. We're bringing it back to its roots.

Tea contains polyphenolsflavonoidsEGCG and L-theanine, which have been shown to have powerful health effects. Specifically, studies have suggested that drinking tea may decrease depressiondiabetesliver and heart disease.

Coffee also contains some polyphenols, however it is much more acidic, often causing irritation to the stomach lining.

Caffeine content is another big reason many are making the switch from coffee to tea. Tea has less caffeine and contains other compounds (like theanine) that stimulate health brain activity, minus the jitters and crash from coffee. #lesscaffeinemorebuzz

Ghee is clarified butter and has no lactose (milk sugar) or casein (milk protein), making it a favorite amongst the dairy intolerant crowd. Fun fact— ghee also has a higher smoke point than most fats, making it a great cooking oil too.

Still not convinced?

Butter recently made a status jump after clinical studies debunked popular myths linking saturated fats to heart disease. Grass fed butter is especially beneficial, as it contains higher amounts of CLA, vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids than its grain fed counter part. #fatisback
