Also known as Noon Chai or Kashmiri Chai, this amazingly pink beverage is made from the same tea leaves as green tea but varies dramatically in taste. A bit salty and incredibly creamy, this chai (tea) is as unique in taste as it is in appearance.
Let's get started.
Step 1: Gathering Supplies
32 ounces of milk
32 ounces cold water
12oz of cold water
1/4 tsp salt
2 heaping tbsp Kashmiri Chai or Green Tea
1/2 tsp baking soda
cinnamon stick (about 2 inches long)
6 green cardamom pods
4 tbsp sugar (or to taste)
finely chopped pistachios and/or almonds for garnishing
This recipe will yield 4-5 cups of Pink Chai
