Seven-colour tea or seven-layer tea (Bengali: সাত রং চা) is a Bangladeshi beverage made with an unknown recipe.[1][2] The Seven-layer tea was invented by Romesh Ram Gour after discovering that different tea leaves have different densities.[3][2] Each layer contrasts in colour and taste, ranging from syrupy sweet to spicy clove. The result is an alternating dark/light band pattern throughout the drink, giving the tea its name. The original seven-colour tea is mainly available in the Nilkantha Tea Cabin, a tea shop in Srimongol, Moulvibazar, with other variants existing throughout different parts of Bangladesh.[4]
