--- the saffron I originally use is not "powdered". Its the "hair-like-strings". There must have been a confusion with the editing of the recipe, as I recall never mentioning the type of saffron I used when I submitted it. Sorry for any confusion ---

what a great change of pace! I made this for my husband using black tea and sugar. It tasted so good that I wanted to try it with green tea and sweetener for myself. I have to say that I liked the flavor of the saffron and cardamom in both the black and green tea. A nice change from the usual addition of dried spearmint leaf, or chamomile buds and leaves. I used loose leaf tea instead of bags. Thanks for this nice recipe
