Bring to the boil 8 cups of water with the 8 cardamom pods, brown sugar and saffron threads. Once boiling immediately reduce to a simmer until the volume of liquid reduces to half. Now it is time to add the loose leaf tea, turn off the heat and leave to rest with the lid on the pan for about 10 minutes. Pass through a tea strainer to take away the loose tea leaves and spices, serve hot. Optionally add a sprinkle of saffron threads to garnish the saffron tea. Saffron tea is a delightful drink first invented by Arabic culture. It is very healthy and has a clean and pleasant taste and is very refreshing.
