How to make Kahwah (Kashmiri Green Tea)

Yields: 4 cups


4 cups water
1 tsp Kashmiri Tea
a pinch saffron strands
Sugar or Honey to taste
1 small piece cinnamon stick crushed coarsely
2 tbsp finely flaked Almonds
4 Cardamom pods, bruised


Boil the water and transfer to a teapot.

Put in the tea and cinnamon, saffron strands and cardamoms.

Allow to steep for about 5 minutes.

Put a teaspoonful of almonds in each cup.

Pour the tea over the almonds, sweeten to taste and serve hot.

Tip:  Do not discard strained tea leaves. Add them to the soil of rose plants, to act as an excellent Manure. If you have many plants, feed one a day, in rotation.
