Kashmiri Kahwa Tea, additionally called “mogil chay”, a vino-hued tea finished with almond parings, has helped Kashmiris beat the winter chill. In spite of the fact that I have had it a few times at my living arrangement in Mumbai, a long way from my country, it did not have that ordinary smell that may be left in the paths of departed Kashmir when made in a not really regular way.

Kahwa is a conventional green tea expended in Afganistan, northern Pakistan, a few locales of Central Asia and in addition Kashmir Valley. In Pakistan, it is made in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan districts.

Kashmiri Pandit transients living in the North Indian Plains have additionally added to the tea’s prevalence among non-Kashmiris as of late.
