Butter and Tea Churn

Tibetans use a wooden churn, like the one pictured, to make tea. The churn must be round, and is usually about four feet in height. The narrow rings around the churn are added for support. The straight stick pictured is used to stir the tea mixture. The holes allow the butter to fully mix together with the tea and salt.
