Saffron Infused Iced Tea 藏红花冰茶

About Saffron Tea:

Did you know the saffron in your kitchen isn’t just a luxury spice? It’s a health powerhouse too! Drinking saffron-infused water regularly can aid in weight loss, sharpen your memory, and combat stress. Not just that, its vibrant hue can uplift your mood and give your skin that much-coveted glow. Now, let’s make this simple yet effective saffron tea that can be savored cold on warm days or at a comforting room temperature.


  • 1 tsp Almasi Aroma Saffron
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp warm water
  • 16 fl oz (1/2 liter) fresh water
  • A slice of lemon or a few mint leaves (for added flavor and freshness)


  1. Infuse the Saffron: Using a mortar and pestle, crush the saffron and sugar until they form a fine powder. This not only brings out the color but also the aroma of the saffron. Add the warm water to this mix and let it steep for about 10 minutes to unlock the full flavor.
  2. Mix and Chill: Pour your saffron infusion into a jug with the 16 fl oz of fresh water. Stir well to combine. For an extra layer of flavor, add a slice of lemon or a few mint leaves. Place the jug in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to chill.
  3. Serve and Enjoy: Pour your refreshing saffron iced tea into a glass, adding a few ice cubes if desired. Remember to consume within 2-3 days and always keep it refrigerated for freshness.
    Raise your glass to a drink that’s not just refreshing but also filled with health benefits!
