      Numerous things that could have been... and, as long as it was the
      whole leaf/plant as opposed to some pharmaceutical monster that only
      Doctors Frankenstein and Moreaux would recognise as related to its
      plant of origin, probably quite safe. Hazarding a guess, it was a
      Betel plant brew. It's like White Willow works in the same way as
      aspirin, but doesn't cause the bleeding stomach lining salicylic acid

      Butter/Ghee teas are more popular in the high regions of India, Nepal
      and Tibet (as far as I recall). Chai isn't proper chai unless its made
      with boiling milk instead of water and is sweetened with Jaggery (or
      raw sugar, not that processed filth that isn't a food group. Stevia is
      ok too, but then it's technically an unsweetened Chai, the Stevia
      being a part of the ingredients)
