Pink Kashmiri Tea | Noon Tea With step by step photos and video with English subtitles

This tea is origin from Kashmir flavorful and aromatic pink tea has its own unique taste, no one other tea cannot be compared to this Kashmiri teaI also came across this tea for the first time  in one of the weddings, getting a good Kashmiri tea in Karachi could be difficult, so making my own as per my taste was a quest, in order to develop a deep pink color naturally without adding any food color, 

Believe me, I did first attempt the pink color that developed in the first attempt was worth it at least for me, I have tried to give detailed pictorial step by step so you can even make it in the first time

My Latest Video two types of Tea :






Many people have complained Kashmiri tea is just like badam pista doodh or hareera, that is because many restaurants serve a very milky Kashmiri tea, I have also experienced this taste the Kashmiri tea with less milk has more intense Kashmiri tea flavor and warmth so I like my home-made Kashmiri tea more than what is served on “Dhaba or cafĂ©”  

Kashmir is a heaven on earth and their culture, jewelry and food is all fantastic, even Kashmiri people are very hospitable and beautiful . An authentic Kashmiri tea salt is added and it is called noon chai, but some non-Kashmiri people in my city (Karachi) add both salt and sugar so it's up to you, I added just sugar. Makes this tea is ideal for winter and its filling and body warming

Tips for making perfect pink tea:
  1. The pink color in Kashmiri tea is the reaction of chlorophyll present in tea with baking soda
  2. So basically you have to cook the tea enough to get all the chlorophyll released into the water. You also need enough baking soda in tea for the reaction. A pinch is enough.
  3. Do NOT add more than that as too much baking soda can spoil the taste. 
  4. This process might take place in 30 minutes and sometimes may need 45 minutes
  5. If all water has evaporated and still you don’t get a reddish color then add more water and cook more.
  6. Once the reaction has completed and we have a deep red color.
  7. We have to add ice-cold water. This shocks the tea and we get deeper red color.
  8. I’m trying to explain this so you can handle if something goes wrong
  9. Like normal chai, you can adjust milk, sugar, and spices to your taste. I added only three spices but you can add more or none at all.
  10. For authentic taste and aroma use Kashmiri tea if not available use pure green tea leaves_ I also used green tea
  11. Using 1.5 cup milk is for strong and 3 cups for light, I like strong this is the reason I used one and a half cups of milk
  12. Authentic Kashmiri tea is saltish not too sweet if you like sweet you use sugar as per your taste
