I'd be worried about your fluoride intake, which as you might know is a neurotoxin. Tea plants tend to love absorbing fluoride. Sure, a cup or two a day for the win, but 20 is for teh fail.

How many of you have ever tried yak butter tea? What did it taste like? Did you like it, and how was your digestion? Have you tried making it at home with cow butter and milk? I guess it's kind of like the bulletbroof coffee.

Fish isn't as important as which part of the fish you're using. Fish heads and fins are ideal. Some people throw the skin and spine in there too, but in my opinion all you really need are fish heads.
