This is the first time we add a none hemp or CBD product to our range. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the “saffron crocus.”
The domesticated saffron crocus, Crocus sativus, is an autumn-flowering perennial plant unknown in the wild. It probably descends from the eastern Mediterranean autumn-flowering Crocus cartwrightianus, which is also known as “wild saffron” and originated in Crete or mainland Greece. An origin in Southwest Asia, although often suspected, has been disapproved by agricultural research.
Its recorded history is attested in a 7th-century BC Assyrian botanical treatise compiled under Ashurbanipa. The ancient Greeks and Romans used saffron as perfume, and saffron is mentioned in the Chinese materia medica from the 1550s.
Eden Aromata saffron comes from Khorasan province, the world capital of saffron, due to the long experience with its cultivation, and the transfer of methods of growing and harvesting from generation to generation. Saffron is not under sanctions imposed by the US, and we are still able to provide it.

Saffron Usage Review by Healthline.com
Other than a usage as an aromatic spice, one can also use it to make Tea.
Saffron tea can be prepared plain, by steeping the threads in hot water. But the spice can have a strong and bitter taste. For this reason, many recipes feature the herb paired a variety of different ways. You can mix it in with tea leaves, or add other herbs and spices.
