This is a terrific tasty tea, Charishma! It has a nice subtle green tea flavor and a lovely spice combination. I did use the optional saffron, which I found to be the dominant flavor, although the cinnamon, and cardamom flavors do show through nicely. I don't really know what flavor the almonds add to this. Very tasty though! I halved the recipe for just BF and I with a drop of honey and milk! Thank you for a lovely variation on green tea!
