it is the famous Pink Tea from Kashmir. However, this tea is not sweet in its flavor. It is salty to taste and different from other varieties of teas available in other parts of the world.

This drink is essentially for very cold weather. You can make a cold version of it for summers! Tastes very good. Best part, it is extremely easy to make and very aromatic, better than any room freshener.
