The people of Taiwan are in luck, as they no longer have to travel all the way to Iran for a taste of real Persian Saffron Tea, mixed with Iran's special handmade crystal sugar. Interestingly, this sugar is not mixed with your tea in the cup. Instead, you place the sugar in your mouth and then take a sip of tea. The sweet sensation you experience as the tea and sugar mix is simply wonderful. Persian Saffron Tea is said to have relaxing effects and is reputed to help improve blood circulation. Very few people know just how precious saffron is. Saffron fields must lie fallow for up to seven years to recover before one hectare of land can produce approximately 20 to 25 kilograms of saffron. And it takes 1000 grams of saffron to produce just 10 grams of fine dried saffron tea. Persian Saffron Tea is a tradition among Iranian families that has been passed down from generation to generation. Beyond a doubt, this tea is a true luxury item. Please call the store directly to purchase, or check out the Kimo Yahoo auction page for Siavashoo's website.
