1 1/2 cups
whole cardamom pods, broken
--- the saffron I originally use is not "powdered". Its the "hair-like-strings". There must have been a confusion with the editing of the recipe, as I recall never mentioning the type of saffron I used when I submitted it. Sorry for any confusion ---
Finally, a use for all those cardamon pods I have. A wonderful tea.
Thanks for the recipe.
what a great change of pace! I made this for my husband using black tea and sugar. It tasted so good that I wanted to try it with green tea and sweetener for myself. I have to say that I liked the flavor of the saffron and cardamom in both the black and green tea. A nice change from the usual addition of dried spearmint leaf, or chamomile buds and leaves. I used loose leaf tea instead of bags. Thanks for this nice recipe
Try serving this with Basboosa (the recipe is on this website). They're good together. The first time I attempted this, I used black tea, but I couldn't taste the cardamom. The second time, I used loose leaf green tea. The cardamom and saffron flavors worked beautifully with the green tea.
This is a nice change from just a regular cup of tea. The spices give it a nice flavor (they are a bit expensive, but should last for quite a while). If you like tea with a little more/different flavor give this try.
Delicious as is, but I added a piece of cinnamon stick and a small piece of vanilla bean to see how that would taste, and it's also tasty. :)
We used thread saffron .. about 12 - 20 per pinch .. and green tea .. thank you
