Tsampa is made from yak butter tea and roasted grain, most
commonly barley. It's been part of the Tibetan diet for over
1,000 years and is considered sacred, a "food of the gods".
high energy provided by tsampa makes it great for nomads, sherpas,
campers, and others in need of simple food that is exceptionally
nourishing. It's also formed into figurines, called tormas, which
are used in the temples for ceremony. Pinches of tsampa are also
thrown into the air as an offering during some Buddhist rituals
as a mark of joy and celebration.
