Cocaine tea was (still is???) Used to help fight altitude sickness. It's tea made with leaves from the coca plant.

I learned about this when learning about the origins of Bullet Coffee. The creator was convinced it was the Magic Yak butter they put in his tea that made him feel better when climbing a mountain. It was probably just a little cocaine.

Coca tea is literally just a bit of an energizer. As in, a cup is weaker than half a redbull.

Its not even remotely comparable to the drug. To make a gram of cocaine you need almost an entire tree's worth of leaves.
