Cinnamon Saffron Tea

In addition to its great gastronomical uses, the spice is thought to have therapeutic healing powers.  Believed to be effective as an anti-depressant, useful for aiding in menstruation and abdominal relief, and boasting overall detoxifying properties, a recipe for saffron tea is just what the doctor ordered.  This recipe uses cinnamon and honey to balance and enhance the spice’s floral qualities.

  • 4 cups water
  • 10 saffron threads
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 tablespoons good honey

Bring water, cinnamon, and honey to a boil.

Turn heat to low then add the saffron strands, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Uncover, turn up the heat to medium, and leave for 5 more minutes.

Strain the tea (discard the threads) into cups and serve hot.
