About Kahwa Chai(Kashmiri tea) Recipe
A cup of Kahwa in winters or in the rainy season is something to die for.The tea is available in most tea stores,especially the ones which exclusively sell multiple varieties of tea.It can be got as both loose tea as well as tea bags.Both versions are as good.You can also buy Kahwa online on various shopping sites which have a specialized food section.Its made in two ways:- 1.Without Milk 2.With Milk The ingredients for both versions are the same except where in the milk version we add one or two extra ingredients to give the tea depth,flavor,taste and color.Here I am showcasing both the methods.People who are lactose intolerant or do not like milk in their tea can use the no milk version and for the people who like milk in their tea can go for the milk version.Both the versions taste delicious and will actually refresh and revitalize you. Sugar or artificial sweeteners can be used in the tea but remember to add a little more than usual as this tea has a royal taste and garnished with nuts!
