Here's a nice recipe for herbal tea. My doctor buddy tells me that it's good for lowering cholesterol.
1. Take thirty or forty dollars worth of saffron;
2. Put it in a big immersion device;
3. Put it in a good size teapot; and
4. Add boiling water.
It's really quite delicious, hot or cold, no sugar necessary. It's probably easier for me; last weekend I bought a bag of saffron as big as my head for two dollars and fifty cents.
