The love for Kashmir and Kashmiri Chai!

Though everything from Kashmir is love but Kashmiri Chai is merely a thing we can get pleasure from, outside Kashmir too. Originating from the paradise land of Kashmir in Northern Pakistan, Kashmiri Chai or Pink Tea is one of winter delicacy. It's a wonderful seasonal intake, it has an attractive rich pink color and, in my experience, just about everyone admires Kashmiri Chai.

Obviously, you can enjoy this inside the solace of your own non-mountain home to make only a usual day somewhat extraordinary. You can discover Kashmiri chai at your nearby chai khana, yet from my understanding, it's basically the same as green tea so you can set it up at home that also.

This specialty green tea takes hours of brewing to reach its signature pink color. Kashmiri Chai is filled with the spices of Cardamom, Star Anise, and Cinnamon, sugared and then boiled with milk, and garnished with almonds and pistachios. It’s a taste that’s exceptional to find, and difficult to forget.

Kashmiri Chai is exceptionally aromatic, with a flavor that is marginally sweet, light, and fiery, with lasting taste of almond. A fine balance of piquancy and green tea, the effect is a cleaner, lighter chai than our traditional Chai Spice Black. This tea is pleasing plain or with a little sweetener. The combination of tea & spices in Kashmiri chai along with added milk make this a wonderfully toothsome & healthy brew. Original Kashmiri Tea is salty, but in our society people like it sweet. For the real taste skip sugar and add salt according to taste.

This tea is actually major staple. The addition of almond to the usual blend gives it an extraordinary flavor. It's tender approach to get you up in the morning yet is comforting in the evenings. It also has healthy benefits: Green tea has benefits for your heart; ginger is useful for the blood circulation and your immune organism; cinnamon is known to help with diabetes; almond is an effective cancer fighter.

Chai is typically prepared very strong which is known as Karak, then sugar and milk are added. Traditional chai involves rich dark tea that is heated hard in milk with additional local spices, for example, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and every so often peppercorns, ginger, and red chilies. The drink is then sweetened with sugar.

China is the originator of the tea, still now producing one of the finest black and green tea leaves, including India, Tibet, Sri Lanka and Kenya. But, most tea addicted in world is not liked for its subtle flavor tones, but instead is mixed with sweet and sharp spice to make chai, Qahwa is the common example, consumed in Arab countries.

The color has inspired an entire trend of "tea pink" fashion clothing. A couple of years prior, many brides swapped out the traditional red outfit with a more corresponding pastel that gets its name from the shade of this tea.

So, when you’re tired, has a good cup of Kashmiri chai, this will feel like a hot affectionate blanket all around you. This time, try a Kashmiri chai, it’s more than scrumptious—it helps your soul.” This is the best tea you’ll ever have!
