It took on a new avatar when the same flavor was infused in the creaminess of lassi. In our Hamdard Rooh Afza Lassi review, we decode if the characteristic flavors are retained or not and rate it on 5.

Our Review Factors
What factors did we base our Hamdard Rooh Afza review on?
The flavor and consistency of the beverage were the primary review-forming parameters. We also gauged the aroma, and appearance, among other non-tasting parameters.
Did we get the original Rooh Afza flavor? The delicate floral notes of distilled rose? What about the creaminess of lassi? Could we taste the slight sourness of dahi? And the sweetness, was it balanced or overpowering?
The best lassi is one that has a rich, thick consistency. Not too thick, but not watery/flowy either. We were looking for a homestyle consistency.
Does this packaged lassi deliver on it?

Roohafza Lassi – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
This lassi comes in a pink and white tetra pack. It has a straw attached to the carton. One carton holds 180 ml and is priced at Rs 25/- with a shelf life of five months.
This lassi is made with toned milk curd (45%), water, sugar, milk solids, stabilizer (INS 440), flavor (nature identical flavoring substances), acidity regulator (INS 330), color (INS 124).
Aroma + Appearance
The color was exactly like that of Rooh Afza mixed in milk, a pleasing pink (Hello, 90’s nostalgia!). This was smooth and even, there were no lumps or spots of cream or malai.
Flavor + Consistency
We poured our lassi in a glass for better visual assessment. It had a decent consistency, the lassi was neither too thick nor too watery, and this was even throughout. The aroma was floral and refreshing, very close to what a rose lassi would smell like. We hit with large waves of nostalgia on tasting the first sip. Taste-wise, this was IDENTICAL to the OG syrup. It had natural notes of rose with a rounded sweetness.
- Same great flavor
- Decent consistency
- Balanced sweetness
