Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. What a lovely mug of tea. It was perfect, I love cardamom and saffron this was a no brainer for me. Thanks for sharing this recipe, that I will enjoy again. Made for NA/ME Feb Fun in the Sun 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the tea bags, saffron & cardamon into a pan & add the water. Cover & bring to the boil. (if you do not like your tea strong, you can add the tea bag just after the water has boiled).
  2. Turn off heat then allow to steep for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Pour into cup (use tea strainer!) and add sugar to taste.
