Things to know about Noon Chai Recipe

Noon Chai is a traditional beverage in Kashmir. Kashmiris are known to be tea connoisseurs, and this special tea is a pride in their culture. The eye-appealing pink color of the tea makes it a favorite of people. The word “Noon” means “salt” in Kashmiri and “Chai” means “tea”.

The origin of the beverage is not confirmed but many people believe that it originated in the Kashmir valley. Some experts, however, argue that the tea originated in Turkestan. The drink is consumed throughout Kashmir twice a day, served with traditional varieties of bread.

The Kashmiri kettle, Samovar, is used to brew and serve the pink-colored tea. Though the tea is not very difficult to make, it requires more effort to brew than other common varieties of tea.
