Experimenting again with Kashmiri Chai/Pink tea/ noon tea again. This started out as green tea. If you add milk to it it will go a pinky brown colour.

I TSP kashmiri green tea ( an assamic green)/ 2 cups of tea.
Extra water or milk.
Baking soda 1/8 TSP per 2cups of tea salt
4 cloves of cardamon
Peppercorns
1 inch piece of cinnamon.

I used a variation of this recipe

Mine was a little bitter today because I was impatient and didn’t cook it long enough. But I like the spicing today and I added a little sugar and a bit of pistachios. It’s amazing though how smooth a tea this process can make when it is done right.

Pistachios?? That is intriguing.

You usually crush them and sprinkle them on top of the tea. I’ve down it with almonds and mixed them in too. I had another style of kashmiri chai with gooseberries added to the finished clear tea that was really good too. That was completely different though I think it had cardamon and a little mint. Sometimes this tea is made purposefully salty.

Gooseberries! Lovely! I made a gooseberry wine, but I’ve never had gooseberries in tea. Now I want to try that!

I’ve tried to find a recipe that was similar, but the tea I had was a green tea chai with just a bit of mint ( it didn’t overpower the cardamon) and about two or 3 [email protected] ml cup of tea.

The glasses were the small Indian chai glasses, about the size of a small juice glass.
