I’ve never tried Kashmir tea, but – OMG – this is the prettiest tea I’ve ever seen! I like the texture you’ve described and the addition of cardamom and saffron. That must be a divine drink. And of course, using some baking soda sounds intriguing – I would have never thought It might be used in making tea. Cool!
