This Sunday I visited the Tibetan district of Chengdu. Because Chengdu is the last big city before/after Lhasa, it has a large Tibetan community. And through this community I got to try something I’ve been curious about since I read it in my guide book – yak butter tea.
Really, it tastes like salty tea – I don’t know what I was thinking it would be like. Maybe thicker, like milk tea. It was good though, and I was happy to find it. We also had some sour soup, and yak meat pie.
