Roasted Barley Flour (Tibetan Tsampa)
To fulfill the request of all our friends of Tibet. We now sell Roasted Barley Flour (Tsampa).
'Tsampa' is roasted barley ground into flour. Tibetans mix butter tea with tsampa to make an instant meal. Butter tea is yak butter and salted black tea churned together, and resembles broth.
Here in USA and tibetans living abroad use honey, butter and hot tea or water with 'Tsampa' to make an instant healthy meal. In short 'Tsampa' is Tibetan Staple food.
