I like kashmiri pink tea and some foods and some drink recipes. I have learned many tea recipes recipes from Pakistani cooking shows and websites.

really it is very good tea. I like it but i have one thing in mind that all ingredients are ok but if tea powder is not ok, tea will not taste good. so always try to get original tea powder with high quality otherwise your tea won't taste as per your desire.

I think the kashmiri tea we find here in Lahore city at some restaurants is not the pure one. Original tea uses pure herbs that are not available in cities. I will try to find the pure elements used to make it. And in fact the tea powder we find here is not up to the mark. It is also mixed and impure.
