I rarely write reviews on products that I buy online. But this is a special case... Perhaps this is not quite a format, but I want to share my feelings and memories here. Safron's taste reminds me of my childhood. My grandfather was a herbalist and often on warm days went to the mountains to collect his "treasures". Of everything he collected and grew himself, my favorite drink was rosehip, saffron, and honey mixture. My grandfather passed away for a long time, and for the first time in many years, I felt the taste of childhood once again by purchasing saffron from Moonflower. I love herbs in general and have use saffron in cooking and evening drinks. But my recent purchase of Moonflower's saffron has the same unique taste and smell that brings me back home many years ago... Now it is my turn to acquaint my children with this with a unique taste :) Thank you for the excellent quality, memories, and childhood cruise. Also, surprised by the extremely fast delivery! Just 2 days! Definitely ordering more.
Moonflowers is a company that truly shows the resilience and love of Afghan women. Every strand that is harvested is beautifully rich in color and adds a lovely flavor and fragrance to the food in which it is used. My grandfather and I have used this saffron in a variety of indian sweet dishes and evening tea. We call saffron "kesar" in hindi and this saffron makes the most wonderful "kesar chai," or "kesar doodh" which is saffron milk. The food and drink you make will embody and carry the love and dedication that was used in harvesting this saffron and is a wonderful exhibition of Afghan culture and it's deep-rooted foundations.
This saffron delivers deep aroma, powerful taste and a beautiful golden color. Since purchasing this saffron, I have adopted a daily ritual of drinking it in tea during the evening to unwind. Moonflowers not only provides a beautiful, rich product, but it also presents the strength and perserverence of Afghan women, its people and its culture. I look forward to exploring and utilizing saffron in different foods and dishes.
