Premium Series Noon Chai.
Free Sodium Bi Carbonate packet inside with the box
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 a sweetener.
How to make Kashmiri Noon Chai
- Take 3-4 tbsp of noon chai leaves in an utensil. Add 1 large cup of water and a pinch of baking soda.
- Boil this until the water is 90% evaporated and reduce the flame to medium.
- Add 3 cups of cold water (to retain the pink colour) and boil the mixture for at least 30 to 90mins. Now your noon chai base is ready.
- Now to make the noon chai: mix the noon chai base and milk (50-50 for milky tea; 60-40 for strong tea) and boil for 10 mins. Add a pinch of salt and noon chai is ready
