Unfortunately, this is not that recipe. If I ever find one, I promise I’ll share it with you. However, this bulletproof tea recipe can help you fight an even more dangerous foe: your own distracted mind!
Bulletproof coffee, a creamy coffee beverage rich in healthy fats that promote mental focus and clarity, has become a huge trend recently, often associated with the keto diet.
So, of course, we tea people felt the need to make our own mark on the bulletproof scene by developing a “bullet tea” of sorts. Essentially, it’s tea blended with unsalted butter and oil high in a group of saturated fatty acids called MCT. Sound weird? It may be, but the purported benefits may just be worth it.
The way most bodies interact with the natural fats in butter and MCT-rich oils (such as coconut oil) has the side effect of increasing brain, function, focus, and energy. If you find that this bulletproof tea recipe has that effect on you, you may consider making it a more regular part of your morning routine.
Remember, though, before you make any significant changes to your diet, always to be in communication with a medical practitioner who is familiar with your body and your health.

Bulletproof Tea Recipe
- 1-2 teaspoons tea (I used Fog Cutter lemon peel black tea)
- 8 oz boiling water
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or MCT oil
- Natural sweetener, to taste
Steep your tea according to the instructions on the package. You will want to select a strong blend of tea in order to preserve the flavor when you add the other ingredients. Breakfast teas will work well for this. If the tea flavor is consistently too weak, you may want to try doubling the amount of leaves you use.
Pour your tea, along with the unsalted butter and coconut or MCT oil, into the blender.
Add a bit of natural sweetener if desired. I used honey, but if you want something without such a strong flavor, try stevia.
Blend for about 30 seconds.
Pour into your favorite teacup or travel mug, and enjoy!
