Teapot (söltip, gsol-tib)
very good, the bottom is blackened by the fire
Tea in Tibet was an important staple in the diet. The tea was made from Chinese black tea bricks.
Butter from yaks and salt were then added and churned together to give a thick, soup-like liquid.
This was drunk throughout the day by all social classes. This teapot comes from a nomadic family
A variety of Tibetan teapots is shown in
