All About Butter Tea Blend (Green, Mate, Pu-erh)
This blend was inspired by Tim Ferriss, who says he's replaced his morning coffee with a mix of green, pu-erh, and mate teas.
We took three of our favorite teas: our Organic Sencha Fuji, our Brazilian Green Yerba Mate, and our Young Pu-erh, and blended them together into one easy-to-steep mix that is sure to pick you up in the morning.
Try it on its own, or mixed with grass-fed butter, MCT oil, MCT oil powder, heavy cream, or any other fat, to really bring out the rich flavor and give you a smoother, longer lasting energy boost!
With these three different teas there are a ton of health benefits to take advantage of. Here are a few of the highlights:
Energy: Yerba mate has almost as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, as well as theobromine to help prevent the jitters or crash you get from coffee.
Weight Loss: Yerba mate, pu-erh tea, and green tea have all been shown to help accelerate weight loss when consumed daily.
Blood Pressure: Theobromine, one of the compounds found in yerba mate, has been shown to help with lowering blood pressure.
Cancer Prevention: Research has shown that drinking at least three cups of green tea per day is effective in delaying processes that lead to mutations and changes in cells which cause them to be cancerous.
Diabetes Prevention: In a study performed in Japan, people who consumed six or more cups of green tea per day saw a stunning 33 percent risk reduction of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Bone Health: Animal studies suggest that the polyphenols in pu-erh and green tea can help to develop higher bone mass and greater bone strength.
Stress Reduction: Pu-erh tea has the phyto-chemicals GABA and theanine, which have been shown to help lower stress levels.
Origin: Brazil, Jiangxi China, and Yunnan China

Mix With: Butter, MCT Oil, Lemon, Getting Stuff Done
I was looking for tea that would match what Tim Ferriss called for in his Titanium Tea. I was pleasantly surprised to run across the Butter Tea Blend here at Cup & Leaf. I subscribed to the Butter Tea Blend, and have been enjoying Titanium Tea daily using C8 powder, grass fed butter, and a pinch of stevia.
Great blend of three earthy and grounding teas! It's a nice energizing blend but doesn't give you any of the top-line hyperactive craziness that coffee does.
