Why Saffron Tea?

Every Afghan home welcomes its guests with a cup of tea, the most prized of these being saffron tea. Historically treasured in the culinary and medical traditions of Asia and Europe, saffron is the world’s most expensive spice. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, saffron has been used in various medicinal traditions for ailments such as: 

- Depression/anxiety
- High blood pressure
- Menstrual discomfort and PMS
- Acne and darkness of skin
- Macular degeneration

Recent clinical studies have also explored the effects of saffron in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, and cancerous tumors. In addition to being used as a spice and medicinal supplement, saffron can be used as a tea, fragrance, dye, and more.
