Kashmiri Kahwa

description

Kahwa is a traditional green tea preparation made with exotic spices. Our signature blend features fine green tea which has been combined with rich ingredients, including cardamom, almonds, cinnamon and cloves. Its signature flavor is derived from the use of saffron strands, that are included in the blend. A truly celebratory tea, Kahwa is best served during brunch hours.

Saffron lends itself to a scrumptious yellow liquor which is uncommon for a green tea. The flavors start off savory and woody - characteristic of the high-fired green tea. Lento clove note reveals themselves next and linger awhile on the palate.

A wonderful chai!

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning.

This chai is bursting with flavor, but not at all overpowering. The spices give it just enough warmth without being too strong, and the green tea base keeps it light and fresh. Plus, the smoky scent while brewing is incredible. Personally, I love sweetening this tea with half a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, and having it before breakfast. However, it certainly be served any time of the day as it is not high in caffeine.

Smells like the Holidays

What really stands out in the dried leaves are the large, in tact pieces of almond. Generally in a tea that would contain almonds, you'd expect measly irregular chopped pieces, but these are long slivers or almost quarters of almonds. The rest of the dried leaves are just dark curled leaves, it's hard to differentiate the green tea from the cloves and other spices at a glance. Aroma-wise, the cloves own the scent. It's almost impossible to pull any other flavor out in the aroma except the cloves. The steeped liquor is fairly clear for a spiced tea with a downtrodden green coloration. The clove backs off a little in the aroma of the steeped liquor, making way for a smoky tone born from the combination of green tea, cinnamon, cardamom, and saffron. The taste is not what you'd expect from the aroma--that's for sure. There is a lot more green tea flavor present than one would ever imagine. Each mouthful comes on as if it is just plain green tea that is scented with spices, and then at the very back-end, the spices rise up moderately. This is a great flavored tea for those who don't like flavored teas (like me). It would be a great pick-me-up when one isn't feeling well. The cinnamon and clove really remind one of the holidays and it could be a great after meal tea at Christmas, etc. I shared this with a few coworkers who don't have a strong preference for flavored tea, but both seemed to like it.

Interesting Green Chai You May Find Yourself Craving

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

This tea is remarkably different. It is not just a chai with green tea; it is something else entirely. The high fired green tea is the perfect base for the standout flavors of cardammom, clove and saffron. It is like nothing I have tried before, but eventually I developed a craving for it.

This green chai wasn't what I expected, and not necessarily in a bad way. It was quite light and pleasant, but I found that as a result it didn't have a very complex flavour. It is good for anytime, especially if you are looking for a light tea to sip on.

This is a nice, pleasant chai, though I don't think it is amazing. It is very smooth although it is a little watery for my taste. I think the chai flavors could be stronger; I find they are pretty subtle in this tea but it has a good flavor profile nonetheless. I can definitely see myself drinking this tea regularly even though it doesn't wow me. I think this tea is best for afternoon as it is very light and won't weigh you down during an afternoon slump.

Some of the best green chai I've ever had. The almond aroma/taste really stands out, and you can still taste the other spices through it. It's great!

I really like the smell of the dry leaves - leafy, spicy, and sweet all at the same time. Though all the flavours blend together nicely when brewed, the tea is light and mellow, with cinnamon and cardamom being the dominant spices. This is my favourite from the samples sent to me this month.

Tres Exotique!

Likes : High Quality.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning.

This blend of exotic spices presents an intoxicating brew which reminds of blanched almond, turnip, and cherry brandy. Boiled with sheep's milk, it presents a viscous mouthfeel which reminds a bit of lukewarm tapioca. I like to take a jug of it along when out fishing for carp. It always hits the spot.

Great light chai taste, but not for lovers of strong tea

Likes : Great Aroma, High Quality.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Dessert Tea.

This kahwa chai smelled beautiful - classic chai aromas of cinnamon and cardamom meet you as soon as you open the packet, but brewing results in a light tasting brew that doesn't quite match the flavour profile the smell hints at. With that said, it is a good light chai, if you're after something with less strength than a regular chai, but I missed the kick that regular chai has.

Totally unique, amazing Chai.

Likes : High Quality.

This tea is unlike anything I have ever tried. The cinnamon makes it smell warm and the cloves provides a very spicy flavor. The aroma is very strong and pleasing. I like to drink this tea with some milk and sugar in the morning and it provides a great jolt of energy to get me going. The tea is very high quality and it is one of the best Darjeeling teas I have tried in a while.

Good quality Kahwa. Better than what you can get in INA Market, Delhi (I'm a KP from Delhi). Has a bit of saffron that adds to the smell. Brings you back home.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

I received a sample of this tea and had never tasted kahwa before. Now that I have experienced it, I will certainly seek it out again - it was a delightful experience from start to finish. The scent of the dry leaves is simply enchanting. The strongest scent is of cardamom, but the other ingredients all add subtle exotic notes. As for the brew, I can taste all the ingredients but no one flavor overe; all the ingredients are in perfect balance. I enjoyed this tea without milk, both plain and slightly sweetened with honey. I prefer my teas to be on the stronger side, so after the first cup I brewed this kahwa with a bit more than the recommended amount of leaves. The flavor lasts through multiple steeps, making this tea an even better value. making this tea an even better value. making this tea an even better value.

When I opened the bag the aromatic fragrance was marvelous. Each ingredient can be individually identified in the aroma. This tea when prepared had a mildly bright flavor which I enjoyed. My second cup, I allowed to slightly cool and and added a bit of honey which seem to pleasantly blend the spices together. The finishing taste enjoyably lingered. This is a wonderful Chia Tea.

The spices are wonderful in this chai. I would prefer the tea itself to be a bit stronger to make it feel more wintery. Overall though an excellent choice.

I had this tea before in sugar powdered consistency. Since then I was searching for this tea. Even though the tea I had before was organic I must say the one from Teabox is much better in quality, it makes such a difference if you have leaves or a powdered mixture. I do recommend this tea, give it a try.

I ordered for Kashmiri Kahwa from Teabox a couple of weeks ago and could not be happier with the product and their service. The delivery was made within a few days of placing the order. The packaging was very professional. It included some very good information regarding the tea and also a nice little bag to keep the kahwa fresh. I was impressed with their attention to detail. The Kahwa itself is very tasty and delicately flavored with all the necessary condiments. The tea leaves have a very smooth taste and are undoubtedly of a very superior quality. I highly recommend Teabox's Kashmiri Kahwa Tea to all.
