Notes

  1. The pink color comes up when you add Kashmiri tea powder in hot boiling water. So monitor the quantity to get desired pink color.
  2. A pinch of Baking soda (soda bicarbonate) will help to get the perfect pink color. So don't skip it.
  3. After adding soda, it will overflow so make sure to use a big tea utensil.
  4. Always add chilled water to hot Kashmiri kehwa. This step will give you a perfect pinkish color.
