      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.

      I made for this lovely tea breakfast this morning and it was delicious. I don't believe that I've ever had tea with saffron in it before. I used Darjeeling tea and it had a pretty golden accent to the color and the cardamom flavor was also a real pleasure. In short this is a wonderful tea that will be made again. :D

      This is really good but I wouldnt call hot tea refreshing but lovely none the less. I always use a bit more than one cup water and it turns out almost perfect. I don't like strong tea so I do put the tea bag in the water after boiling and then I remove it from the burner to calm the boiling down a bit and turn the burner heat down I then simmer it for 1 1/2 minutes. This was a wonderful cup of tea which I had with breakfast. I will definitely make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.
