Yeah true that^

Credit goes to Aunty for letting me know about Earl Grey :D

 

Yeah, where did all the tea lovers go?

 

Anyways, my big bro drank 2 cups of tea in a row before he went out this morning. I had half a cup.

 

Random kashmiri chai recipe i found:

 

- 6 tsp. green tea leaves

- 15-20 seeds of green cardamom plus 1[##][/##]2 tsp. ground cardamom

- 1[##][/##]2 tsp. bicarbonate of soda

- 1[##][/##]2 ltr. full cream milk

- Fresh cream ( malai)

- 6 tsp. ground pistachio

- 6 cups water

- salt to taste

 

1. Pour water in a heavy based large pan. Add tea leaves,salt, seeds of green cardamom and bicarbonate of soda.

2. Bring to boil reduce heat and simmer briskly for 45 minutes or until it reduces to 1[##][/##]3 its quantity.

3. While it is still boiling pour in it about 2-3 cups of cold water or enough water to make four cups in all. Bring to boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, strain and keep aside.

4. Boil the milk with ground cardamom over low heat. Pour prepared tea water (Qahwa) in the milk. Bring to boil, add salt and simmer for 3-5 minutes over low heat.

Remove from heat and pour into 6 cups.Pour 1 tablespoon of cream or malai. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of pistachio over it.

Flavor of the tea depends on the quality of the green tea leaves.

How you can put Salt in it
Kashmiris do put salt in their tea. I remember one time this lady asked me if i had some salt whilst she was making tea and i'm like 'are you sure you don't want sugar?' :D

 

Sis Aamina you hooked on the Earl Grey :D did you try Lady Grey?

kashmiri chai,

 

Now-a-days, it is rarely available, cz its preparation is quite cumbersome and time consuming.

That is not black tea, it is known as pink tea, usually taken in winters only.
