Default Add some milk for a good sleep

Like the Taste I believe the reason people put milk in tea is simply because they like the taste. Tea contains caffeine in the same quantities as coffee (more or less!).
When milk or other fatty substances (ghee, yak butter etc.) are put in the tea the barbiturates bind to the fat and are then digested and absorbed by the body.
The effect is to perk us up with the caffeines while at the same time relaxing us with the barbiturates.
So milky tea provides a much better way of waking yourself up than a cup of coffee and will not impair your ability to go to sleep.

Yak butter sounds like the ticket. Peanut butter, crackers, and milk works for me.

Yak butter is butter made from the milk of the domesticated yak (Bos grunniens). It is a staple food item and trade item for herding communities in south Central Asia and the Tibetan Plateau.

The mrs got some buffalo ghee, as well as some cow ghee, at Trader Joe's today. We'll have a taste test, I imagine. The buffalo ghee has turmeric and other spices added and not so sure about that. I see an Indian dinner soon.
