Try this morning tea instead of coffee. It’s rocket fuel for the brain. It might seem reminiscent of Bulletproof Coffee, and they’re very similar. I started experimenting with fat-plus-stimulant beverages in 1998 and 1999 while on the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD). For this particular tea, I’ll often add turmeric and ginger, usually Rishi brand from Amazon. For more quick-tip videos like this, check out

  1. Hi Tim,loved your video, but from a Chinese experience ,you'd better wash that Pu Er tea quickly like 5-10 second by dipping it into hot water. Wash it like 1-2 times before you actually keep the tea. Not sure if its raw Pu Er or cured Pu Er , but if anyone want a good caffeine boost and also clean up your intestines better go with fresh raw Pu Er . But it will make you hungry easily , better not to smoking pot and drink lot of raw Pu Er unless you have a feast by your side.

  2. Google Cyclical Ketogenic Diet. You'll understand why he's drinking butter & coconut oil with his tea. For people asking why or leaving silly comments, read the description and do a little research. The diet is actually pretty amazing.
