A Middle East treat. This is a delicious nighttime beverage and can also be served over ice for a cool beverage.

My mom went to Spain and brought me back some saffron, my one request. This was my first time using it and I wanted to try something easy. I reduced to 2 servings. The flavor was light and unique. The saffron never truly dissolved but it didnt affect the taste.
