This tea is great for brewing Kashmiri Chai

I'm not sure how this tea does steeped, but going through the therapeutic process of preparing kasmiri chai, the subtle hint of saffron is perfect.

Nice but needs a tweak

This is the first time I'm writing a review for the site, because I like all of their teas, but this one needs just a little fine tuning, hence I hope if others agree, the company might change this blend. The issue is that the tea is not strong enough and the saffron itself too faint. I can tell that the idea and basic flavor works, and I really like it; however as it stands its neither strong tea nor discernible saffron. I've tried using more amounts, or for longer periods, but it just doesn't do it. And I've ordered it 3 times, all the time wanting to make it work, but in the end just couldn't get it to be within by spectrum of acceptability. So for me, until the recipe is changed, this tea will -sadly - not be reordered.

A miss for me

This is my first disappointment from Rare Tea. With saffron, I guess I was expecting a more robust flavor. This tea is very delicate, and there is barely any saffron in it, so if you are a huge fan of the flavor of saffron, you might be disappointed with this tea. It's quite pricy for not much tea, and I like just about all the other black teas from this company more than this one. That being said, I do taste the toffee and fruitiness of the tea, but it tasted almost like a weak fruit-flavored bagged tea. I tried brewing different amounts for different times. Nothing made it work for me. Thanks anyway. It was fun to try!

Kashmiri Saffron

Kashmiri Saffron

We are not doctors, or indeed snake oil salesmen - but there are no known negative side effects of drinking tea or saffron. They are absolutely delicious and in their pure forms like this, combine to help us feel good, at the very least from their sublime flavour.
