How to make Kashmiri Sheer Chai
My Tip:1. Adding excess amount of baking soda will sweeten the tea even if sugar is not used to prepare it. Also be careful to use the correct proportion of tea leaves because the desired pinkish colour will not be obtained if more than the required amount of tea leaves are used. 2. If green tea is used do not boil only infuse in hot water or the flavour will be lost.
