Kahwa is a traditional preparation of green tea widely consumed in Afghanistan, Iran and some parts of Central Asia. In India, this tea is very famous in the Kashmir valley but it is made slightly differently by boiling green tea leaves with cinnamon, cloves, rose petals, cardamom and saffron. We know having a cup (or many) of the Kashmiri Kahwa will hit differently sitting in the lap of nature in Kashmir itself. But considering the lifestyle we are accustomed to, it is highly impossible to plan a Kashmir trip just to enjoy Kahwa and that is why we have curated the Teawery Rich Kashmiri Kahwa which is made with 100% natural ingredients to give you the best Kahwa experience every time you brew it.
What is it made of?
Inspired from the true flavours of the authentic Kahwa, our Teawery Rich Kashmiri Kahwa is made by infusing Darjeeling green tea with Tassyam spices like Ceylon cinnamon, green cardamom and cloves, saffron and hand-picked rose petals. Each ingredient has its own unique flavour, aroma and benefits.
Ceylon Cinnamon is the true cinnamon and has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. One teaspoon of cinnamon contains 0.1g protein, 0.8g carbohydrate, 1.4g fiber and 26mg calcium making it a highly nutritious spice. It is also a rich source of anti-oxidants and its probiotic properties are known for good gut health. Other than that this sweet spice is also good for controlling blood sugar levels.
Cloves are rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and are traditionally known to strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation and aid in digestion.
Green Cardamom has diuretic properties, promoting urination in the body and thus, lowering the blood pressure. It may have cancer preventing compounds and some anti-inflammatory properties which can cure chronic diseases. It is also one of the best ingredients to give you fresh breath.
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world and Kashmir is the largest producer of this costly spice. Saffron or kesar is a powerful anti-oxidant and may improve mood and treat depressive symptoms. It also has cancer fighting properties and provides relief during periods.
Rose petals are not only fragrant but are packed with so many healthy benefits. It reduces anxiety and stress, improves digestion, soothes menstrual cramps, reduces inflammation and is a good source of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
To make the most of the Kashmiri Kahwa experience, take 1-2g of tea and add hot water (ideally at 90-95C) and let steep for 5 minutes. 2g of tea will make 2 to 3 cups.
