Kashmiri Kahwa ( Kashmiri Black Tea)
Kashmiri kahwa is a specially brewed tea which has the kahwa tea leaves, almonds, saffron, cinnamon and cardamoms brewed to a specific consistency. This tea is a must after every meal in a Kashmiri household. In my quest for authentic recipes, I got hold of some traditional Kashmiri recipes from a friend's mother and had my first cup of kahwa. It felt too strong for my South Indian palate but I did get a pack of kahwa tea leaves to woo my guests. I have tried brewing this tea with other tea leaves though it does not taste the same I still like the mix of almonds and spices in my tea.
