This traditional Kashmiri recipe is a blend of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, and almond flakes and essence which produces the rich, semi-sweet and nutty flavor favored in Kashmir.
Story, Folklore, History...
The Nagas of KashmirNagas are a class of serpentine beings, and are considered the earliest inhabitants of Kashmir, as the Kashmir valley was once a vast span of water, and the Nagas were primarily waterborne creatures. The Nilamatapurana records how Kashmir was lifted out of the water and left under the care of the Nagas. In fact, the Kashmir word for a water spring is naga, and springs are the primary source of water in Kashmir. Many temples in Kashmir are built near water springs and are dedicated to the worship of the Nagas, and many Kashmiri festivals relate to Naga worship.

This sweet and nutty chai also makes a great chai latte. The taste of almonds is smooth, almost creamy on its own. The spices are more mellow than most chais, the sweet and nutty taste is the predominant flavor with the spices acting as a delicate aftertaste.
