Inner Mongolian Snacks

After riding in wind and rain for 2 hours on horseback, we rested at a yurt and snacked on Mongolian cheese, milk tea, and cookies.

The milk tea was more creamy than sweet. Mongolians add a kind of popped grain into the tea, but I preferred to drink the tea without the grain. The cheese were all sweet and hard and had a sweet tart texture. The snacks were definitely something you would have to develop a taste for.

  1. I don't know why this didn't pop up on my google reader until today. Darnit!

    What an amazing adventure you've had, yucky oat noodles notwithstanding! Welcome back to town.
