The popularity of bullet proof tea and coffee has been on the rise lately and we thought it would be a great recipe to share with you all. The basis behind this magical drink is that the coconut oil and caffeine in the drink increases your energy and cognitive functions without the crash of a normal cup of coffee or tea. Essentially, it will get you up and running and keep you going with out the normal afternoon slump.
While the coffee version is great, we prefer our tea. We’ve tried several different versions but we like taking a slight twist on Tim Ferris’s preferred mixology.
2 tablespoons green tea
2 tablespoons pu-erh tea
1 tablespoon turmeric, ginger herbal tea
1 tablespoon yerba mate
1-2 tablespoons coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut or mct oil
In a tea brewer or strainer mix together green, pu-erh, herbal and yerba mate tea.
Fill with 8 – 12 ounces of hot water and let brew 2 minutes.
Strain tea and mix in coconut milk and oil.
This tea is simple to make and we’d love to hear your take on it’s effectiveness. Fire off in the comments below!
