Aromatic Tea + Pakistani Sweets


I have always liked sweets after a meal. Without it, the meal isn't satisfying or complete and after meeting my husband I got into the habit of drinking tea after every meal as well. You can say drinking black tea with milk is kindoff 'an Asian tradition'. Now kashmiri tea (something new to me) is a Pakistani type of tea made with tea leaves, milk, almonds, pistachios and cardamon. It pairs well with traditional pakistani sweets like jalebi and gulab jamun. The way pakistanis eat is very heavily. Including meats and rices filled with aromatic spices. This is surely enough incorporated to the teas they drink too. In fact, I wouldn't be able to think of a better way to end a heavy paki meal than with kashmiri tea. The sweets are literally sugar and water. Therefor, having the light perfumed kashmiri tea serves as a great balance to your unforgettable food coma.
