Pu Erh Titanium Tea Will Rock Your World

Are you drinking this pu erh Titanium Tea? You should be! Entrepreneur, author, and podcast legend, Tim Ferriss swears by this pu erh infused “Titanium Tea,” calling it “rocket fuel for the brain.” Ferriss is not only an overachiever himself, but he’s spent thousands of hours talking to the world’s most successful people and he maintains that diet is one of the biggest indicators of success. So what is Titanium Tea and why does it work so well?

Titanium Tea is a combination of pu erh (an aged black tea), green tea, coconut oil, MCT oil, and a turmeric-ginger blend and Ferriss claims it contains “fat loss and energetic benefits” that “consistently [blow him] away.”

The preparation of this pu erh based Titanium Tea is reminiscent of Bulletproof Coffee, but here’s how it differs:

Ferris’s Titanium Tea contains the same “fat plus stimulant” formula as Bulletproof Coffee, and it touts similar effects (energy and focus), BUT it’s made from a pu erh tea base, not coffee. This means there is less caffeine, and it includes other energy-boosting properties like theobromine and theophylline. These properties offer a more sustained energy boost and lessen caffeine dependency.

3 Yerba Mate Recipes You’ll Love

KissMeOrganics Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate is packed with antioxidants and nutrients, and drinking it regularly provides numerous health benefits. Plus, it contains caffeine so you also get a nice little buzz.

But …

not everyone falls in love with Mate at first sip. Its strong, earthy flavor is an acquired taste to some. I’ve personally grown to love it, but if you’re still on the fence and you’re looking for something a little lighter on the palate, here are 3 great Mate recipes that almost anyone can enjoy.

 

Yerba Mate Latte

Oh yes, I’m always up for a frothed milk treat. A latte is a great way to enjoy a softer, sweeter Yerba Mate experience. If you want to sip on something sweet and creamy that packs a nice little kick, this one is for you (Makes 1 latte).

Ingredients:

  • 1 Yerba Mate tea bag
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk (dairy, soy, almond, rice)
  • 1 tbsp sweetener (sugar, honey, maple syrup)

 

Directions:

1.Brew Mate bag in 3/4 cup of water. 2.Add 1/4 of warmed milk and 1 tbsp of sweetener. 3.Warm and froth ¼ milk (you can froth your milk by shaking it in a tightly sealed jar, or you can use a whisk, hand-held milk frother, or french press). 4.Top your mug of brewed yerba with frothed milk.

 

Terere

This is a common Mate drink in South American countries. It’s refreshing, sweet and cold so it makes the perfect sipping beverage for a hot summer day. You’ll need a bombilla (a traditional metal straw/filter) and loose leaf yerba in order to make your Terere. Here’s how it’s done.

Ingredients:

  • loose-leaf Yerba Mate
  • ice cold water
  • sweetener (sugar, honey, agave syrup) (optional)
  • 1 lemon, lime or orange
  • mint, lemongrass (optional)

 

Equipment:

  • Guampa or Yerba Mate gourd

Yerba Mate Muffins

Cooking with Yerba Mate

Yes, I’m serious. You can add Mate to your muffins for a flavorful treat that packs an energy punch. Adding nutrient-filled Yerba to my muffins seems like the perfect excuse to indulge. I’m not eating these muffins because they’re delicious, I’m doing it for health reasons … I swear.

Ingredients (makes 12 muffins):

  • 1 cup cold Yerba Mate
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
