Sweet Saffron Milk

Sweet Saffron Milk
- A pinch of authentic saffron strands (let stand on the counter soaking in about 2 tbsp water overnight)

- Milk
- Sweetener (honey/sugar/agave/ your choice!) 

Heat the milk in a small saucepan, or the microwave and sweeten to taste once it is warm. Add soaked saffron threads and water it was soaking in, at this point the water should be so intense in colour, stir it all into the milk.

If you want to make a milk tea (chai tea) then here is the alternative method:

Heat milk in a saucepan and add to it 1 or 2 teabags (good quality orange pekoe) as soon as it's just about to come to a boil and the milk begins to rise up remove from the stove and stir, steep just about 2 minutes, remove teabags and sweeten.
Now add your saffron threads soaking in water right in and serve!

Feel free to strain the saffron threads out but they're so healthy (and expensive!) I'd rather just consume them.

Serve and enjoy!
