A delicate hot drink. My DH and DD said it smells indian! The reason is that in India we had a lassi that with the same spices (I published my lassi recipe some month ago). In any case I was surprised from the rusult. No yogurt, no tea, no milk and so delicious!
Thanks we enjoyed it very much!
Fabulous! The cardamom, rose and saffron meld together nicely. I bit expensive for most. Glad I grow my own saffron. Thanks.
Success! It worked! Although serving the tea iced had the opposite effect...
The recipe was reduced to one serving and I didn't use as much rose water-perhaps
only about 3/4 tablespoon for one serving. Floated one rose petal on top (from our garden and unsprayed!) Reviewed for Visiting Persia/June.
A nice smooth tea, but still a little weak after 15 minutes of covered simmering, maybe my cardamom pods are old I added an extra bruised one. I did add additional white sugar as this is nice, sweet. I may try this again simmering for longer.
My mum is Persian, but never seen her make this, wonderful tea, tastes great, and authentic too, this is my new speciality now, and I did not even learn it from mum. thank you for a great recipe.
WOW - I have to admit - I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this recipe. I made it for my husband for Valentine's Day, and it was VERY tasty indeed. So much so, that it will become a "special tea" to serve guests. It's fancy AND tasty!
