You can add sugar/salt later in your cup according to your taste. Soda gives this tea the desired color thats why you add it.

To get the pink color, u shouldnt add all the water at once. When i make the chai, i add 2 cups of water first and continuosuly stir and when i see the pink color formed then add another 2 cups of waters.

the easy way to make that chai is 4 glass of wate add 10 pices of cardamom and let it boil for two min and than add 4 tablespoon of green tea leaves let it boil 5 min and than add 1/4 teaspoon of soda bicarbonate and let it boil for 15 mintues u wil see on the edges pink color than u add about one bowl of ice and let it boil for 20 min the colour will come by it self you don't have to add anything else after that you can keep that chai without adding milk in fridge for about week to make tea you take half cup milk and half cup of that chai and boil it and than in the cup you can garnish with pistacho
