Looking for Kashmiri / Noon / Sheer Chai (Pink Tea) in London

samus Apr 16, 2013 03:43 AM

Hi all,

I'm looking for a place, any place, to try Kashmiri chai in London (a/k/a Noon Chai, Sheer Chai or pink tea). It sounds like something I'd love... see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noon_Chai

There was a place called Chaiwala's in Goswell Road, and their website is still up, but I went by yesterday and it's been replaced with a bagel shop. Any tips appreciated!

    I know of a place in Luton, but let me look around closer to home (East London.)

      Thanks, JFores! East London would be brilliant.

        Would love to know the Luton place, JFores, I'm there reasonably regularly.

          There's an outdoor stall that does it on the high street in Bury Park. I'd have to ask my friend for an exact cross street or address.

        Have a look where Chai Fusions are popping up next - had the pink chai at the Southbank's Alchemy festival...

        Here's a pic: https://twitter.com/chaifusions/statu...

        They're on Twitter @chaifusions and the website is http://www.chaifusions.com/

            Only ever hovered but Yasmin of Love Desh recommended I connect with JFores as a felloe Indian food fanatic - and I remembered seeing all his fab East Ham recos ages back and thought I should sign up formally!

              He's the only other person I've encountered who shares YOUR level of both knowledge and fanaticism! I hope you can meet up over some Asian deliciousness!
