This blog is a personal hobby for me to write mostly about tech stuff and also other things that interest me.

Regarding noon chai… “noon” is the Kashmiri word for salt. Noon chai is a salty tea with a little pinch of baking soda added in to make a pink color. Sometimes cream is added, and you usually drink it with savory biscuits or bread to dip or soak in it. It’s a unique drink in Kashmir, India, which is a place close to my heart.

Visitors to Kashmir either greatly enjoy it or hope they don’t have to drink more than one cup. I liked it, especially at weddings when it’s served from a samovar. This blog won’t be about chai, but I just liked the name and the place it reminds me of.
