Lovely Saffron

My saffron looks really fresh and has a lovely color- I used a little last weekend in a paella - it tasted great - but I really don't know exactly how saffron should taste - just no experience with it. Will change that in the upcoming weeks.

Hi Helen,
Thansk for the 5-star review.
Yes the saffron we sell is fresh, and has a great color. And of course a great taste too.
I would suggest to make a saffron latte, or saffron tea. You can also make a saffron rice, or saffron risotto. Check our website under blog&recipe. We are also in the process of creating and writing new recipes.

Best regards,
Mohammad Salehi

Saffron Strands.

Beautiful saffron of amazing quality. I’ve been using it to make a daily milk/latte/tea to help with anxiety & ADHD per a naturopathic’s suggestion. It’s taken about a week to see effects start to take place, and has been a wonderful addition to my natural health care. Not to mention it has a delicious and rich flavor!

I am glad your enjoying our saffron, and its health benefits. Please always come back, and we are here to serve you with our freshest and best quality saffron.
