"the quality of its tea, I assure you, is unparalleled."

Pakistani tea is similar to Indian tea, called masala chai (meaning ‘spiced tea’). Masala chai is made by boiling tea leaves mixed with spices and milk. Other varieties of tea are Kahwah, a kind of green tea grown in the Kashmir Valley, which is brewed with spices including cardamom, saffron, cinnamon and occasionally roses, and served with crushed nuts, sugar and honey. Doodh Pati Chai (‘milk tea’) is dearer than normal chai, and made by brewing tea with a mixture of milk and sugar.
