This classic Tibetan beverage is traditionally made with yak milk...so feel free to substitute for the half and half if you have extra yak milk lying around! This is from the Tibetan region of Pemagul and traditionally not sweetened, but a bit of sugar can be added if you like! From "In Nirmala's Kitchen".
