I often sweeten my tea (English Breakfast) with amber surgar crystals containing saffron.

I cannot explain the taste, but it is so delightful!

Sounds very interesting. I have heard of using saffron in cooking, but never heard of it with tea.

I have a saffron crocus in my garden, when it blooms this fall, I will need to give it a try.

I realize this is probably a machine translation, but what could he/she have possibly been trying to say that turned into "catching tattoos"?

Actually, I never understood all that "it's so healthy" bit. I mean, carrots are full of vitamin E, but I don't chuck a good few pieces of carrot in my tea just to get the benefit of both :)

Carrots... you know... daucus carota subspecies sativus. Add a little celery, a few onions... dang that's good tea. Or soup. :)

To be honest, I virtually never have herbal tea, but I do not doubt the potential health benefits of various herbs and spices (but not veggies). If people want to put them into their tea, I figure they could do a lot worse...such as artificial colors and flavors.

I generally enjoy tea for the the whole tea preparation and drinking experience. The fact that I consider it to be a healthy alternative to the heavily processed beverages is a huge reenforcement for me.

The saffron sounds very interesting because it is so unusual, exotic...and such a costly spice. Plus the fact that I have it in my garden...I may try this.

1. Tea good
2. Carrots good.
3. Effect comparable but not spectacular. (I usually think that it's because carrots are less exotic.)

Anyway, that's my take on it.

edit: hmm, the forum stretches my thingamabob a bit or something. Original file at http://aycu21.webshots.com/image/23860/ ... 027_rs.jpg if it's just too illegible.

Jomana, I am also aware of the health benefits of saffron. I use it in my tea everyday.

I usually have a cup or two with saffron in the late afternoon.
