Noon chai is traditionally made from a type of green tea leaves, milk, salt, baking soda and usually cooked in a samovar. A pinch of baking soda gives it a pronounced pink color. Sugar is not traditionally used in Kashmiri home recipes, although newer commercial preparations in Indian and Pakistani restaurants and tea stalls may include sweetener.
