Noon Chai: A Pink Delight from Kashmir

Noon Chai is a special drink that originates from the Kashmir Valley, a region known for its scenic beauty and rich culture. It is made by boiling gunpowder tea leaves, which are rolled into small pellets that resemble gunpowder, with milk and either baking soda or sea salt. These ingredients create a pink or saffron color in the tea, as well as a creamy and slightly salty taste. To enhance the flavor, some people also add spices like cardamom, fennel, cinnamon, and nutmeg powder, but this depends on one's preference. Noon Chai is a popular drink in Kashmir, especially in the cold weather, and is often enjoyed with various types of breads and pastries that are typical of Kashmiri cuisine. Some examples are Lavasa, Sheermal, Kandir Tachot, Bakarkhani, and Kulcha. Noon Chai is not only a delicious drink, but also a symbol of the Kashmiri culture and hospitality.
